    CC#1 or Volume slider

    Just curious. Using JABB & SONAR, one can add modulation (or volume) using CC#1. But having set it to a start value, let's say 70 -to get an initial volume-, is moving up and down of the volume slider in Sonar equivalent to drawing CC#1 in Sonar?

    I know that for certain instruments, the loudness(volume) is not the same as striking a key or string hard enough, e.g. the piano produces another sound when you hit a key softly (raising the volume makes it un-natural).

    Does that also apply to JABB instruments?
    Is a CC#1 curve better than a slider movement?

    Raymond,

    They are different, The volume slider in Sonar generates cc#7 not cc#1.

    The Volume slider (CC#7) only changes volume, CC#1 also changes - in addition to volume - the timbre. You should only use CC#7 to set the overall balance between instruments.

    Mike, I meant the timbre and Nickie got it right. As I already assumed, CC#1 will alter the timbre, but I just wondered how far it would go. Now I am sure.

    Thanks,
