Thislesson can be done withany other plugin. 5. Piano Roll Now its time record themelody. We have to openthe piano roll, click in therecord button (next toplay and pause) and justplay the melody on ourMIDI device or PCkeyboard. My result wasthis sound. 6.

We can see that notesnow are fixed in the tempo lines.Sometimes the quantizer doesntgive us the results we need sowe can play with some settingslike sensitivity knob to look for ourgoal melody. Now the melodysound like this. 7. Reflection I always preferred to use my mouse to create the perfect timed melody so I was neverreally aware about how quantization works. I knew about it but just preferred to use mymouse. With this lesson now I know more about quantization and its parameters.
