    Opening MIDI Morph

    • In Your DAW: Open MIDI Morph as you would with any Instrument plugin, on an empty Instrument channel. MIDI can be demoed directly within MIDI Morph.

    Main Features

    Scale and Key Selection

    • Selecting a Key and Scale: Use the dropdown menu to choose the musical key and scale. MIDI Morph will adjust the MIDI data to fit your selection by shifting the individual notes to the closest notes in the specified scale.

    • .Mid files can be dropped directly into the main window and then dragged directly from the window. You can also use the Export button to export new .mid files.

    Randomization Features

    • Variation Knob: Controls the intensity of randomization. Lower settings apply subtle changes, while higher settings result in more drastic transformations.

    • Scale Morph Button: Applies randomization based on the current threshold setting. It intelligently shifts notes to the closest note within the selected scale and key.

    • Voice Morph Button: Swaps notes within the MIDI data, respecting the threshold setting for the randomness of swaps.

    Note Length Control

    • Tame Knob: Adjusts the length of notes. Adjusts all notes simultaneously.

    Custom Audio

    • .Wav File: Drop .wav file into this slot to use it when demoing Midi.

    • Attack/Release: Standard Attack and Release controls for the .wav.

    Other Controls

    • Play/Stop Buttons: Demo the current midi.

    • Undo/Redo Buttons: Undo and Redo the last command.

    • Clear Button: Clears the loaded .mid file.

    Advanced Tips

    • Creative Use of Variation: Experiment with different variation settings to find the sweet spot for your track. Use automation to vary randomness throughout your piece.

    • Scale and Key for Musical Coherence: Utilize the scale and key selection features to maintain musical coherence even when applying extreme randomization. TIP: Drop in a midi score and select the Scale and Key it's in, then use Scale Morph to create brand new sections.
