Velocity curve on Keylab Essential?
« on: March 19, 2020, 10:44:59 pm »
I intend to buy NI A61 and realize that it does not have velocity curve so I am looking at the Keylab Essential. Does it has selectable velocity curve?

Quickest way for you to have got an answer to that question was read the downloadable manual:http://downloads.arturia.com/products/keylab-essential-49/manual/keylab-essential_Manual_1_0_0_EN.pdf
TL;DR? There are three selectable velocity curves plus full-on.

The available curves are lacking a bit. While linear is quite soft, exp tends to get loud too soon (ya, I know, it‘s exponential). Would something in the middle be possible? Like, e.g., simply a steeper linear curve?

Between the few options, the linear curve seems best, followed by the log.  Exp seems way too soft, and I really have to hammer the keys to get max sound.  Another question:  in the config software, I change the curve and hear the difference, but when I go  back into the software, it's always on linear (even though linear obviously isn't the current setting).  Is this normal?

the velocity response of the keyboard is nice, not bad, especially that, it can be configured in the midi control centre. I personally love the "Log" preset-velocity response, but i say i w'd really appreciate if Arturia, constructed a editable velocity response preset, because providing the already configured key velocity preset ain't that enough on the basis of a limited option to explore in order to fit your desires, with already configured preset

I just received my KLE88 this week. I find the velo curve our of the box to be a bit on the soft side when I compare it to other boards, and I usually play a Kronos 88 with the weighted keys so it's not like I have a light touch. That said, these are midi controllers, so it's trivial to throw a velo curve filter in front of your inbound midi in your DAW or AU/VST host to get the feel where you want it. Actually, you can tailor the velo to the patch you're using in this way for even more control. I found I had to curve up my velo a bit and compress the velo levels on the bottom and top ends to get it to play like I wanted, but once I did, it feels great IMO for a non-weighted board. The keys don't slap down onto the stopper like other inexpensive controllers I've owned in the past.
