I’m sure I’m not the only one who has noticed that black keys tend to reach higher velocities quicker, especially on synth-weighted or non-weighted keyboards. This has to do with the shorter length of the key vs the same spring being used on all keys.
It’s not normally a huge problem but when programming sensitive velocity switched sounds (in this particular case, a fingered electric bass switching to picks) it can be a nuisance. With the power of software, it’s theoretically possible to overcome this with a large amount of filters/velocity curves but it seems to me it’s a fairly universal problem and it would be really nice to have an integrated single control to help with this. Basically a velocity offset and curve control that affects only the black keys of a keyboard (and that takes into account transposition, at least on Cantabile’s end).
Hope this makes sense and I’m not the only one obsessing about this.
