MIDI controller keys velocity lock?

Hi there,

I have an akai lpk25 which I use mainly for playing with Caustic, but unfortunately this keyboard has no velocity lock feature, so I have to rely on the DAW to have that feature. Only the note on velocity of the keys is what I need to be locked. So is this possible with Caustic?

Maybe I should have put this

Maybe I should have put this one on the Feature Requests subforum. My bad.

Hello..

Hello..

No, you did put your question the correct sub-forum.. Maybe the "tips and tricks" would have been a good subforum too.. Or the "feature request" if this is something you would want to see implemented on Caustic..

Anyway.. What you can do to have a constant velocity, in real time, I don't know..

But when it is on recorded patterns, then you can open the piano roll, then select all notes, .then select the "note" button (on top of your screen, close to the 'select" and "edit" buttons).. Then move the "velocity" slider to the value of your choice.. Then all your notes will have the same velocity value..

Hoping that will help you..

Thierry

Yes, I mean I need it in real

Yes, I mean I need it in real time. I knew my eyes are not skipping anything in the menus but oh well, maybe this feature will be possible in the future. Thanks for the response!

Are you on PC ?? Tablet ??

Are you on PC ?? Tablet ?? Cellphone ??
Maybe your machine has a setting, somewhere, that filters off velocity value ??
Or maybe a little soft, between your machine and Caustic, could do it ?? Or an electronic module, plugged at the midi out of your kboard ??

I'm using caustic mainly on

I'm using caustic mainly on an old nexus 7, and since the latest beta 8 improved latency on my device, I thought I could play real time with this mini keyboard and have some fun, so I don't want to make things complicated. Its not a big deal, it is playable, I just slam the keys harder now :))

Ah.. Sure, it's not a big

Ah.. Sure, it's not a big deal.. And this way is an opportunity to improve your kboard touch, if it needs to.. Just be careful not to break the keys !!
I.wish i could plug my kboard on my cellphone.. I can only on my PC..

I don't think it is

I don't think it is controllable unless there is a parameter on your keyboard itself (which is not likely for most of them).....
