DX7 Velocity Setting Quirk
« on: April 03, 2018, 07:50:59 pm »

Apparently there is a quirk in the Velocity setting that leads to a bit duller sound

Have a look at this thread: https://forum.arturia.com/index.php?topic=92100.0
There is'nt anything wrong with Arturias DX7 V velocity settings, when you use a normal 0-127 velocity controller. A reel DX7 only have a 0-100 velocity. If you don't use the DX7 velocity setting in Arturias version when using a 0-127 velocity keyboard, then the sound will be wrong (too "bright") compared to a reel DX7.

Hi,

Woody has done another video a day after with the correct settings ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHycGwuWcn0

Yes Matt. I have posted the same video in the DX7 forums, and also linked to it in the thread i've posted a link to in this thread.
But apparantly there still is confusion. The confusion is about Woody is using the original DX7 as keyboard for DX7 V too.

As text for the video Woody write this:
"We didn't get it quite right in the first installment of the Arturia DX7 V comparison with my original vintage Yamaha DX7.  So here comes Part 2 where we will use the correct settings that we established in the first video.  The problematic setting was the keyboard velocity scaling which must be set to Full when playing back midi recorded on the original DX7 that only transmitted up to velocity 100."

But Woody does'nt make the same clear in the video, so it can be heard like the DX7 V velocity setting should allways be on "Full" to get the right sound. If you don't read the text, then you get it wrong. So reading the text under the video is essentiel for the understanding.
