  • About Modulation Wheel

    Hi,
    Not sure if this is the right place to ask... [:O]ops:
    I'm using Triton as my Keyboard controller and going to get Opus bundle and overdrive soon. The Mod and Pitch Bend controller at Triton is combined, and the mod wheel is those spring type that it will bounce back to center position when release...

    1. will that be problematic when using with Opus?
    2. Is overdrive having any articulations that need mod wheel too?

    Thks.

  • Hey keekee, I first started using my Triton Studio with the Vsl. I could not make my ribbion controller or the the stick work in place of the modulation wheel. Set my midi up correctly, still no luck.

  • Im using a triton pro and the mod wheel works with me, BUT still I'm not all happy with it. Gonna upgrade with a M-Audio MIDI Keyboard Keystation 88 ES soon.

    You wont be sorry, the same route I have taken, very happy with it.

  • Thks for the reply. I'm wondering do we need a weighted keyboard for Opus? Will it has significant effect in expression? If it's not signifcant, I'm happy to save some money! [:D]

    Might be a bit late to respond to this one, but hey. I actually had problems with my weighted keyboard because the samples are layered and the more velocity you add, the expression changes in the sound (the expression levels change at a particular velocity intervals). I found performances being a bit patchy, and end up going back over all the clips and changing the MIDI event info to make sure the velocity is consistent.

  • The velocity crossfade on the control page does away with velocity issues as far as the keyboard is concerned. A slider allows realtime control

    Is the control page you refer to on Giga or Nuendo/Sonar?

  • Hey... Thks... it's not too late...Now I'm with an Oberheim MC1000-88. Weighted and with the same problem (well, guess it's too late. Ha). May I know how to solve that in Kontakt format?

    Besides, with the MC1000, sometimes I observed midi in message from cubase SX, but I'm not pressing a key or anything. It doesn't really create any problem, but would appreciate if any experienced user share with me why. Thks.

    After you've played the piece, you should be able to go into your sequencer program and change the velocity values. What program do you use?

  • I'm using Cubase SX3. Ya, it can be edited in the midi editor, but kind of hassle... [/quote]

    I found out that a keypoard with no weighted keys but keys that spring back quickly is the best to use on Any kind of samples, Drums ect.. need quick reseptives. As far as I can tell the velocity is very controlable. Of-course all digital signal is at a o level for contact, its in the sequencer. You can adjust it anywhere in controllers especialy.
    I spent lots of money on a weighted keyboard and it sits off by it self. Makes a good book and paper table. For playing live could be another story. Its just piano that realy makes a small difference. Although I could also be wrong, but thats how i use it.
