Velocity sensitivity or attack?



Asked by: Ryan Sing

What is velocity sensitivity?





Velocity sensitivity refers to the mechanism that allows the keys to respond to the force or speed with which they’re pressed. In other words, keys react differently when they’re played in different ways. Playing a keyboard gently will result in softer sounds, while literally playing harder produces more volume.

How do velocity sensitive keyboards work?

A velocity-sensitive key action responds to how firmly or softly you play the key, transferring that energy to the sound-producing mechanism to allow you to play many different volume levels from soft to loud. Non-dynamic keyboards have keys that are simple on/off switches that cause the sound to play.

What is velocity and aftertouch?

Velocity sensitivity—how fast the key is pressed. Aftertouch, or pressure sensitivity — the amount of pressure on a key, once already held down. Displacement sensitivity—distance that a key is pressed down.

What is the difference between touch sensitive and weighted keys?

Touch Sensitive – No resistance to the touch but the harder you strike the key the louder the tone. Semi-weighted – Lightly weighted. Some resistance but not at all similar to an acoustic piano. Weighted – Feels at least similar to an acoustic piano.

Repeat delay is the time difference between when you hold a key down and before it starts repeating. If you need to use the same alphabet or number or any character, you hold and wait for the same key to appear again and again but rather quickly.

What is MIDI aftertouch?

Aftertouch is MIDI data sent when pressure is applied to a keyboard after the key has been struck and while it is being held down or sustained. Aftertouch is often routed to control vibrato, volume, and other parameters.

Do digital pianos have aftertouch?

It is a completely different feel from the aftertouch of an acoustic. In a digital piano, further pushing on the rubber can be used to produce additional sound effects, as stated.

What is Polyphonic Key pressure?

Polyphonic Pressure (0xA0) and Channel Pressure (0xD0)
