Editing the Velocity of Select Notes in Reason

This comes in really handy when you’re editing a drum track in Reason, in fact, it’s pretty essential. When you hold down shift while using the pencil tool in the sequence view, only the notes that you have selected will be affected. So for example, if you want to make a snare roll with a bunch of sequential 16th notes, but you have a kick drum hitting at the same time as some of the snare hits, you use the arrow tool to select just the snare rolls, and then use this method to alter just the snare notes, just draw a diagonal line that moves from low to high, and voila, a snare roll! (Snare rolls are even better, though, with a slight accent in velocity every 3rd or 4th note.)
