Project Input Transformer

The Project Input Transformer is a powerful tool for search and replace functions performed on MIDI data.

The Project Input Transformer works in real time. It filters out and transforms MIDI data while it is recorded. All settings that you make in the Project Input Transformer always affect the actual MIDI events you record.

You can use the Project Input Transformer as follows:

  • You can set up filter conditions to find specific elements.

    These can be elements of a specific type, with specific attributes or values, or on particular positions, in any combination. You can combine any number of filter conditions and make composite conditions using And/Or operators.

  • You can select the basic function to be performed.

    You can, for example, change the properties of the found elements or remove the elements.

  • You can set up a list of actions that specifies exactly what is done.

    This is not necessary for all functions.

By combining filter conditions, functions, and specific actions, you can perform very powerful processing.

In order to do so, you need some knowledge about how MIDI messages are structured. However, there is also an extensive selection of presets, allowing you to access these processing powers without delving into more complicated aspects.

  • The settings of the Project Input Transformer affect all MIDI inputs and thus all MIDI tracks. To transform MIDI data coming to a specific MIDI track before it is recorded, use the Track Input Transformer instead.

  • You can also use the Transformer MIDI effect to transform MIDI data. See the separate document Plug-in Reference.
