Can I change the overall level of velocity response of an A-Series Keyboard?

I have looked through the full manual and searched in the community forum but without success. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Hey @LeeG Unfortunately there is no setting available for velocity response or velocity curves on the A series keyboards.

    Hi, again Jeremy!

    I thought that may be the case and at least I now know for sure.

    Behind the question was a bit of concern over how hard I have had to hit the keys when playing one or two highly responsive instruments like pianos. I guess that means having to adjust certain parameters and saving the results as user presets.

    For the time being, I'm happy to go away and learn about that for myself through tutorials, reading manuals and most importantly spending more time with my hands-on.

    Thanks once again anyway. Regards, Lee.

    Hi @Jeremy_NI , will the option to change the velocity curve be added in the future? I’m in need of this too.

    @Jacob This is not planned in the near future.

    It is not planned at all, not even in the far future, and never was. I've inquired many times with support and you always get the same answer. They just want you to buy the more expensive S-series. But don't Arturia keyboards have various curves for the same price.

    I've spend quite a few bucks on NI gear so the fact that they can't support such a standard feature is disturbing. I always place a velocity curve transformer in Ableton before any instrument I want to play on my A-series.

    If NI would take their hardware customers a bit more serious they would have implemented such a simple upgrade in the keyboards. It's not higher science.

    Had the same problem. Created a account to help you and others. Was looking for hours all over the internet... and i find a solution. https://springbeats.com/velpro/

    It changes the velocity of your midi instrument as you wish. But its 39 bucks. You have just to change the MIDI input into the one created with velpro... and the Programm needs to run in the backround during your sessions. Hope it helps ;)
