    I don\'t hear anything \'abnormal\' in these. Sound pretty, sweet and nice to me. Unrealistic velocities? Depends on your style. Practice makes poifect...

    Almost anything is better than an old Yammie - limited midi velocity from the factory.

    To smooth it out, if you wish, record to a sequencer, use the velocity smoothing/compression routines to smooth it out. (Reduce velocity to 33%, then add 60, or some such, depending on what the seq will do.)

    Solo pno comp & midi controller question

    I recently made two improv recordings made with GigaStudio and the PMI Bosendorfer lib. While I\'d like any feedback (composition, performance, mixing, etc.), I was looking for some specific feedback regarding the note velocities.

    Probably shouldn\'t have started with something like an improv piece since there\'s no reference point, but the only thing I\'ve got controller-wise right now is an old DX7-II and some notes just came out way too strong. I squelched a few obvious ones I didn\'t like in the sequencer before dumping to Adobe Audition/CEP, but I\'m curious if anyone else hears unrealistic velocities in the pieces, or if it comes off naturally.

    Then also wanted some recommendations on good MIDI controllers for this sort of thing -- or any tips/tricks to help even out the velocity input from an old, non-weighted keyboard.

    Thx.
