    Question: Evolution 61 key-more velocity

    I just exchanged the keystation 61key for the evolution 61 key because it had more controls. However, I'm noticing that I really have to bang on the keys to get the velocity up to 127. If I change to one of the other "hotter velocity curves ...for lack of a better word" I loose the dynamics....
    ie, no soft notes.
    I know I'm not probably speaking midi language here, but does anyone know how I can increase the output of this keyboard? I didn't seem to have this problem with the keystation.

    Any help appreciated.

    I have a evolution 61 for traveling and you can change the velocity curves via a button combination. Can't remember it, but get your manual you should be able to finetune it.

    I found the velocity curves to be pretty awful. On all except one, you had to assault the keyboard to reach 127. It was also giving me double notes. I would play a note at medium velocity, and about half the time it would show up as 2 midi notes of the same pitch in my sequencer.
    I went back to GC and exchaned it for the radium 61....problem solved.

    Keep in mind that 127 is supposed to be all-out slamming, it's as loud as you ocan get. Is the low end similar (play as quietly as possible to get anything below, say, 10?) If so, it's probably a good design, and will just take getting used to-if not, then there is an issue with the keboard. But it also could simply be that it doesn't respond the way you are used to. Many keyboards I have played over the years reach full velocity at about 2/3 of my full strike, and some never reach 127 at all...

    hi Dasher. Well the problem was that I'm using trilogy which accesses certain parameters (gliss) when you strick the key at 126-127.

    Well, I suppose you could always just edit it in when you need it... Hope the Radium is working out for you.
