Bought a Alesis Turbo Mesh kit. When I plug it into cubase, and hit the kick and snare a decent hit, midi velocity comes in at around 100-127. When I do the same strength of hit on the hat, cymbal or ride it comes in around 30. So of course the drums sound awful (as a VST). Even when I strike the hats/crash/ride REALLY hard it comes in around 50-60. (No the kit is not broke, the cables are in right etc)
Now because the Alesis kit is the basic model, there is no way to change sensitivity on the cymbals. When I connect the kit directly to speakers the cymbals and hats are fine. Volume wise.
Here is my question. On cubase, is there a way to: on a specific midi instrument, or virtual instrument. If NOTE C# on the middle octave is hit (hat/crash/ride), to boost its velocity by say 50 points?
I know you’re going to ask, Can’t you just turn the volume of the hats and cymbals up on the VST? I can, but the hits sound like WEAK/meek hits turned up. If you know what I mean.
Is there a way to boost specific midi notes on a vst, as a play them live (I’m not talking about after a recording is made, and using the note editor).
