A value below 1.00 is compression and a value above 1.00 is expansion. For details, see To compress or expand all note velocities in a row.

Clear Pattern. Click to clear all steps in the current pattern.The Options menu contains the following commands:
Use fixed/default pattern velocity for step record. This option lets you specify whether step recording should use the recorded velocity or a fixed velocity value for new notes. For information about setting a fixed velocity, see To specify the default velocity value for new notes.
Preserve pattern for step sizes. This option lets you specify how existing notes are affected when changing Steps per Beat value in the toolbar. When Preserve Pattern for Step Size is enabled, the original pattern is preserved whenever possible as you add or remove beats. Doing so ensures that notes retain their original position within each beat. When disabled, additional steps will instead be appended at the end of each beat.
Trigger note on click. Enable this option is you want to automatically audition a note when clicking on a step.
Set default velocity for steps. Lets you specify the default velocity value that is assigned to new notes that are enabled in the Step Sequencer. The setting is global, which means it applies to all step sequencer clips and projects. The default velocity value is 100.
