  • VEL FX Help

    Hello All,

    Paul put out a video on the new Library on Synchron Prime Orchestra a few weeks ago (Lol, good video Paul, I purchased the Product and I love it).  However, the topic of the video was focused on Vel FX.  Paul was kind enough to answer the question I posted, but I now realize I have been treating the VEL FX in the Synchron Player as a "Dynamics" controller.   The answer to my question informed me that I did not understand the powerful tool of VSL Vel FX. I use VEP Pro 7 religiously, especially for all my VSL libraries.

    How can setup something in VEP Pro 7 so that I may "Practice" the proper use of the Vel FX feature inside my DAW?  I rarely if ever use my Pitch Wheel on my Keyboard so I was going to assign CC2 to it. Create a template of instruments and ??.   I am trying to find an exercise to practice so I can effectively use the Vel FX feature properly (I can now see ALL the potential I have been missing <-embarrassing to admit). 

    If I posted this question in the wrong place in the Forum then my apologies ahead of time.  I was not sure where to post this inquiry?

    Thank you,


  • Hi Paul, 

    We have mapped Velocity XF to CC1, and it's actually  the perfect Dynamics Controller, as it lets you blend from pianissimo to fortissimo. 

    Not sure where I answered your question, but this sounds like it could be a misunderstanding... 

    Here's a good video from Fabio Amurri who explains the different versions of our presets

    Automation of Expression and Dynamics?  or Just Expression?

    Hi, it's both Velocity Fade (blending between dynamic layers) and expression (channel automation).

    I just wanted to make sure I understood the correct of function VEL FX, within regards to the information in the video??  (within the Synchron Player).  The video really opened up my eyes/ears.
