MPE + ChannelPressure Polyphony.

0 votes
Hello Peeps.

I am experimenting with the Roli Seaboard Rise. We have KeyPitch and KeyTimbre rocking. However, a little confused regarding pressure and polyphony. Is it possible to express the pressure in a polyphonic nature. If we assign MIDI on the VCS, how does this factor with the MIDI Channels.

Is there no !KeyPressure?

Sorry if I have missing conceptual areas, but would love to dig deeper into this instrument.

The Z-Axis on the Continuum and MPE controllers map to !KeyVelocity. Kyma note events are different than MIDI note events because you can modulate the value of !KeyVelocity throughout the lifetime of the note. Typically !KeyVelocity is used to control the amplitude of the sound but it can, of course, be used like any other hot variable to control other sound parameters.
