If you find that your MIDI performances aren't quite as perfect as you'd like them to be, and the velocities of your notes are sometimes too soft or too loud, you can compress them using Cakewalk's Interpolate feature (available in Pro Audio and Guitar Studio, but not in Home Studio). Here's how:

1) Select your Track(s) in the Track View.
2) Choose Edit>Interpolate to open the Event Filter - Search dialog box.
3) Click None.
4) Put a check mark next to Note.
5) Click OK to open the Event Filter - Replace dialog box.
6) Enter the range of velocity values you would like to use in the Velocity Min and Max parameters.
7) Click OK.

Cakewalk will then compress your velocity values to the range that you specified in the Velocity Min and Max parameters.
