having to hit midi keys HARD to trigger things

Fri Aug 27, 2021 12:46 pm

I have to slam the keyboard key down to get it to trigger. How can I lower the velocity so that I can just press a key normally?

Do you understand how MIDI velocity works? In most cases, the pressure of the key results in a value between 0 and 127. By default, Magic will assume that any value of 64 or greater (which Magic interprets as 0.5 or greater) means "on" for a trigger. But this is easily changeable using the Scale modifier. For example, if you want a value of 32 to trigger something, you can scale by 2.

An alternative solution (if available) is to use your MIDI device's control panel to send out a higher velocity for the same amount of pressure, or to configure it to just send 127 and 0 and not any intermediate values.

I'm familiar. I'll give scale a shot, but my assumption was that it would interfere with the toggle I have set up.
