I wish we could assign Velocity Curve to pad or at least to program! C'mon akai... key groups do NOT play like Drums! Don't leave us locked into this clumsy Universal Velocity Curve! It's whack

There are a nice handful of ways to adjust/ assign velocity response. The _velocity curve_ is the hardware settings that also gives options for the sensitivity(or lack of) of the pads. Choices are Logarithmic, Exponential, and expressive.

Well there's Pad Sensitivity Settings in the Menu Screen.

Exponential Velocity Curve is nice with key groups, but not drums. It allows some tasty triggering with seductive aftertouch expression.
Logarithmic Curve can be nice with drums that respond well with a caress of the pads.

Adjusting the settings revealed to me my different finger strengths, and positional strength while playing.
The wide fluctuation makes a universal velocity Curve undesirable and unusable.

Hey Al Yeska,

Thanks for posting!

That's a very interesting idea and would make for more expressive control. Be sure to submit this as a feature request with the MPC 2 Software's built-in feedback module.
