I've been doing midi for years but never even heard or understood all these complicated controller/messages. I just bought JABB and a new keyboard controller with aftertouch so I could get the vibrato thing going.
I'm using Sonar Home Studio 6XL. The ONLY way I can get vibrato is if I manually draw a value in the aftertouch screen. I can see that the aftertouch message is being sent by viewing the little keyboard icon at the bottom of my screen, but I don't see it being recorded in Cakewalk or making any difference in vibrato.
Also, I don't really hear much difference in the samples whether I play soft or hard. Aren't there any velocity layers to these samples (other than drums)?
