Topic: Yamaha CP33
Dear CP33 users
As a starting point, I suggest that as we work to create a custom velocity curve for the CP33, we make sure that we all use the same keyboard settings.
IMPORTANT: To set your CP33 up to generate a linear velocity curve, simply press any two instrument presets at the same time so that there are two lights illuminated. (i.e. grand piano 1 + strings or wood bass + electric piano 2 for instance)
A consensus of opinion is needed as to whether we use 'Medium Touch Sensitivity' or 'Hard Touch Sensitivity'. It takes quite a bit of welly to get 127 using hard touch, but some may think medium touch reaches 127 to easily. It would be good if we could discuss this at the outset to determine where we work from, otherwise we'll not all be singing from the same hymn sheet! If push comes to shove, we can always put it to a vote, 'hard touch' vs 'medium touch'.
Next we will have to use the same criteria for the settings in pianoteq. May I suggest, as Niclas has already done, that we simply use the default 'C3 Solo Recording Preset' with no adjustments other than the obviously nescessary velocity curve and dynamics modifications.
I look forward to working with you to achieve a final CP33 velocity curve that will enable us all to get the most out of this great software.
A.k.a. I like shells!
