Haha, nice. So... Just keeping you guys updated. I am using Kinetic 2 right now to assign voices to the peizo. I set it to a note on/off and it works just like a normal switch, without velocity. I am going to go through all of the settings and see if I can find one. Just tell me now if it is not possible.
The controller is a bit spotty. It stops sending information after a few minutes of inactivity. The only way to re-enable it is to reset it to factory settings.
I had an idea for a way to detect velocity of a peizo. It involves the use of middleman software, and I do not have the skills to develop it, but if anyone out there has them, feel free to rip my idea, just let me know. It may already be possible with midiox, but I have not explored it enough to tell. Here is my idea.
Since I can see velocity while calibrating, it makes me think that the controller is sending information about velocity, but the MIDIsense software may not have the capability to decode it. Let's look at midi signals of velocity in terms of percentage. Say that if we touch the peizo very lightly, we are getting an input from the controller of 10%. I know that it does not send the information in terms of percentage, but let's pretend. How about we take that information and with software split it into many different virtual midi inputs. For example, right now in Kinetic, I have assigned a Tom sound to my peizo, but with the fabled software, we can intercept that signal and split it into many different signals according to how much percentage of velocity is being applied. With the middleman software running, we could take Switch #1, 1%-12% and assign it a midi on/off. then we could take Switch #1, 13%-24% and assign it another midi on/off. We continue this process with each switch so that we only have 6 physical switch inputs from the MIDIsense, but the computer sees about 40 virtual inputs. With this in mind, we could take Switch #1, 1%-12% and assign a very quiet sound sample of a Tom. Next, we take Switch #1, 13%-24% and assign a slightly louder sample of the same Tom. With Switch #4, 1%-12%, we could assign a quiet cymbal. Then Switch #4, 84%-100% would be a..... very loud cymbal.
Is this already possible? Am I dreaming to much? Did I even make sense? haha. tell me what you think.
