NoteMapper v1.05

NoteMapper is a VST plugin that allows you to map MIDI notes to other notes. Each incoming note can be mapped to up to three notes, even on different MIDI channels. This allows you to, for example, let one specific note trigger drum sounds in up to three different drum samplers. In addition, you can scale the note velocity, apply randomization to the velocity scaling, and set a note probability for each individual note.

This is useful for several purposes, for example for MIDI note conversions between different drumkits. You can also use it together with the step sequencers in for example FXpansion Geist or Audio Damage Tattoo (which can output MIDI notes, but will not let you change the MIDI output note numbers) to drive other drum instruments like Toontrack EZDrummer. Or you can map the notes generated by the step sequencer to a melodic scale and send the MIDI data to a synth.

The velocity scaling and randomization allows you to create interesting variations if your destination instrument is set to respond to velocity. Create further randomization with the note probability setting.

Key features:
  • Remap MIDI notes

  • Can remap notes between all 16 MIDI channels
  • Filter out unwanted notes
  • Automatic melodic scale assignment
  • Adjust the incoming velocity by a specified percent
  • Randomize the velocity scaling
