    Poll: Aftertouch

    Are you using aftertouch?

    If a sample library has essential features programmed on aftertouch:
    - Would you be able to use it?
    - Do you like to use aftertouch?
    - Would you need an alternative controller to use it?

    Thanks for helping developers to create better products.

    Barely ever use aftertouch. I can use it, don't need a separate controller. I just haven't used it much at all - no specific reason. I won't mind using it if required though.

    Well, as the industrie slowly adapts to aftertouch again (like edirol with their USB keyboards etc.)- yes, would be great.
    But please also note that a lot of great 88 keyboards do not support aftertouch (Well, personally I only find the Kawai keyboard of acceptable quality for an 88 keyboard and that does not support aftertouch) - so keyswitches and aftertouch together might not be a good idea :-)

    Re: Poll: Aftertouch

    I'm using it on a few instruments.
    It doesn't seem to be very common these days.
    I like it.

    Hi Chris,

    I use aftertouch any time. That was one reason for me to buy an EMU Xboard 61 in the last days. Aftertouch is so very usefull. I wonder why so many instruments not programmed to recive aftertouch... .

    I wonder also that a lot of 88 keyboards do not support aftertouch?!

    Best Regards

    Hi Steff,

    I use 2 keyboards. One 61 Emu with aftertouch and a second (creative-mini prodikeys) for keyswitches

    Re: Poll: Aftertouch

    I'd like to use aftertouch, but most virtual instruments only support midi control changes, and aftertouch doesn't correspond to a controller number.

    I'd greatly appreciate *polyphonic* aftertouch, but as far as I know, there is no midi controller keyboard on the market that supports it.

    Yes, many years ago that was a highlight. At that time I used a Casio Synthesizer who have had this, a great thing!

    I think the industry have forgotten this exclusiv possibility to control the sound?!

    Much years ago it was a problem for the most sequenzer programs to process the many datas which coul`d send from poly-aftertouch.. . But know in ouer time that isn`t a problem yet... .

    Hey, is there a manufacturer who reads ouer words?

    I use to use it a lot years ago, but I find that many modern synths (I use mostly software now) do not have it programmed into a patch and so I most time even forget it exists :-)

    Re: Poll: Aftertouch

    I think aftertouch is a great feature and much too less often implemented.
