Is there any way to have Cantabile scale midi velocity output to a plugin based upon key number? Here’s what I want to happen: I have a Kontakt instrument that sounds great, but the higher notes are too loud. I’d like to be able to translate the midi velocities such that past some predefined note (c4, for example) the velocity gets progressively less by percentage. If this isn’t possible in Cantabile, is there another app that could accomplish this scaling?
When my older 88 key controller started blowing out the velocity rubber pieces, and the velocity on those keys were much louder than others, I also went on a search because repair parts were hard to find. I cured it with a little VST called Veloscaler by CodeFN42. It works very well and is FREE!
BTW, here is the thread where I was asking the same question.
Also, if you read above my comment on Veloscaler, @Torsten gave a great example of the possibilities within C3.
This is a typical application for ReaJS: this plugin (part of the free ReaPlugs suite) allows you to run scripts on audio or MIDI input. For your issue, I modified a script that I already had. Simply paste the code at the end of this post into a file called “midi_vel_highdamp” (no extension) in the following folder:
