Sound will be recorded.

Using the internal keys (visible in the key editor) the sound generated
is at it should be.

Using the keys of the keyboard, the sound is rather dull.
More a harp sound. Or like limited by a bandpass-filter.

Searching here and using the internet as well - no result.

Your help is appreciated


The keyboard in the key editor plays notes with full velocity (127). When you play the keyboard, the velocity will vary depending on how hard you hit the keys, so it will usually be quieter/duller than when played from the key editor.

Either play the keyboard harder, or (if possible) adjust the velocity sensitivity of the keyboard.
