Sorry for the MIDI-esque question here. It does pertain to samples, though.
Using my Yamaha P-200 as a MIDI controller, mainly for piano libraries, I'm finding it difficult to get that perfect response from the sample library as I do from my internal sounds. Now, libraries like Art Vista's, Post's, Worra's are far superior to those in my P-200. However, they're not as "playable" mainly thanks to the velocity output sent via MIDI from the P-200, no matter what hardware velocity curve I set. While I can go into Kontakt and manually change the sample MIDI levels, I'd have to do this for every instrument in my arsenal, some of which are non-Kontakt VSTis, too!
So, I figured I'd look for a MIDI velocity scaler and, surprisingly, came up with very little. The best bet I found to date was from MusicLab of RealGuitar fame. This is an MFX plug-in, though.
I'm using Tracktion 2 which does not support MFX, unfortunately. The only MFX/VST wrapper I've ever come across is from Steinberg (I also own, but no longer use Cubase SX2). Naturally, I would not expect this to work in Tracktion.
If anyone here has come across a decent plug-in, free or pay, I would be very interested in it! It would be great to be able to "dial in" a velocity reponse setting based on any VSTi or sample library I have. Thanks again!
