I played around with the Midihub to use my SP404 MKII as a sampler for pianosounds played via midi keyboard. To make it more realistic I built two velocity layers and pedal noises (via transformation of cc into note on messages).
I have got two Questions, to make the usage more piano-realistic:
(1) Is there a possibility to transform the normal „note on velocity“ into the velocity of the later happening „note off event“?
Unfortunetly my Keystep37 and my Novation Impulse both don’t support „release velocity“ (= note off velocity, ≠ aftertouch) on their own. With Midihub so far I only was able to implement key release noises with random velocity, which sometimes sounds unrealistic. Especially because at higher velocities there should be a different sound than at very low velocities.
I know Midihub can’t make my Midi-Controllers transmit those Velocities. But it would be a progress for me, if I could also use the note on velocity as the later happening „note off velocity“. I already tried to transform the note on velocity first into cc message then back into „note off velocity“. It worked, but the note off information was at the wrong time: Exactly when the note on event happened. There is the problem, that the „note on event“ happens earlier than the „note off event“.
Is there a possibility to transform this point of time from one event (earlier) to the later happening event?
(2) When I play very short tones with a high „note on velocity“ they sound unrealistic cutted at the end because (only) in the attack phase the samples are very loud. Is it possible to set the minimum length of a tone with Midihub (e. g. at least 500 ms)? So when a tone is to short it will be automatically extended to e. g. 500 ms? That would maybe feel a bit weird to play, but it would make my compromised self made velocity layered SP404 use surely sound more realistic.
