Ya actually you don't want to use the Reaper volume envelope feature at all, to do what we have been discussing, i. e. bringing single notes up or down in level/volume. Volume envelops are better suited to ramp up into and down down out of, longer sections of notes like up to a chorus etc. ,,,, not to correct individual notes . You want to do what Kenny Gioia is doing in the video I posted at about the 1:17 mark
What that does is more accurately effect only the selected note/s, and not any adjacent notes that you don't want to effect, so nothing gets weird regardless of how busy the tune is (unless of course you overdo the corrections ) and like a car on snow/ice you could end up in the ditch
