I’m new here trying my hand at making a MIDI FX plugin. I have general programming experience, though its been awhile since I’ve used c++. I’ve only spent a little bit in documentation and looking at the example plugins for reference so forgive me if I miss something glaringly obvious.
What I’m trying to do is make a MIDI effect to read in all the highlighted MIDI info on the current track and at the press of a button, randomize the velocity.
I’m reading some stuff on iMidiMsg, but those seem to be more for plugins processing data as it is being played in the DAW. I believe this is where I would be messing with MIDI once I have it.
I just need to get the MIDI notes of what is highlighted. Any suggestions of where to look or how to even accomplish this?
(As an added bonus, if I can figure out how to grab all the notes the user has selected, then I do want to be able to shift them around randomly by a subdivision amount (like a humanization effect). Unsure if there’s a way to alter the timestamp that a specific MIDI note is played)
