I am trying to figure out what the relation is between velocity in the different layers within an instrument, and key velocity.
I know that I can switch with modulation data with my modwheel between the different layers within an instrument patch. I can however still play very soft till loud with key velocity on my keyboard within every layer. So how excactly do I use these 2 in combination to get a good result?
Say for example my 1st violin legato patch has 3 layers.
Does this mean that every layer has a different dynamic/timbre? For example layer 1 could be ppp till mf, layer 2 could be mf till f, layer 3 could be ff till fff (depends of course how the company recorded it). In values every layer will have a range from something like 1-40, 41-80, 81-127.
How now does this combine with key velocity? Are the values in every layer the same as the key velocity values? Or is this a complete different thing?
