    Technique: Inverse Air/Key Noise to Overall Volume

    One thing that I've sort of started doing (and made possible with my TenCrazy.com MFX CC Map plugin) is an *inverse* relationship of air and key noise to CC#1/vol. I theorized that softer playing (especially in a mic with dynamics processing) will make these elements heard more prominently.

    Realistically, one should also bind a relationship between the relative speed of a line to key click noise, as some players are very excitable that way.

    Yes, I do the same thing with the CCs. I'm a sax player and I concur--the breathy saxophone sound is more prominent at low volume levels, as are key clicks. I'll check out your mfx, because I usually do them by hand.

    Hey, I just found some of your MFX plugins--very cool, I can definitely use these.

    Do you have any good presets for these plugins (particularly the note rotator and auto alternator) for GPO and JABB sounds?

    By the way, what language do you program MFX in? Any tips on where to look for information on basic MFX programming?

    thanks,
    chris.

    No useful presets as part of the install: I tend to use them in different ways depending on project needs. The MFX Note Rotator is often good for drum parts, though, such as randomizing which ride cymbal hit a jazz pattern uses at any given time (middle, bell, edge).

    They're programmed in C++. There should be an SDK somewhere on the Cakewalk site (though I have no idea where they moved it these days!), which includes an MFX example to get you started.
