The Histogram tool displays velocity and MIDI CC values as a chart, with values grouped according to their frequency distribution. It allows you to change values on a large scale, including across entire tracks; for example, increasing all velocity values proportionally.

  • You can show the Histogram tool in the Velocity and MIDI CC editors by clicking Histogram in the corresponding editor header.
