    +1 for Velocity Editing in Seq mode!

      Any chance to make the velocity stay the same when set in pads screen without it resetting? Current behavior seems more like a bug to me than a feature...

        +1 for the velocity slider to stay put once set!

          To be honest I tend to rely on external sequencers because there is no way to edit velocity. I am mainly using the BB as a clip recorder/player at the moment because of this.
          Something as small as being able to edit not velocity would make a huge difference whether sequencing external gear or the internal sample engine.

          Some have suggested that once the velocity slider is set on the Pad page, that value should be retained when you switch to the Sequence page and start entering notes.
          This would at least be a "work around", although a visual indication of a notes velocity in the Sequence page would also be nice.

          I have to admit that I can't play keyboard or finger drum for sh*t, that is my shortfall but I know I am not the only one.
          For people like me, being able to edit note and velocity is essential for a sequencer to be usable.

            Likewise. I like taking the BB out n about with me. It would be nice to be able to use it fully self contained.

            Agreed.

            I posted this over a year ago. I've given up hoping this will be implemented. I don't think it's an unusual feature request but it seems maybe it is?

              I believe the sequencer will get attention in one of the next updates. I don't want to overinterpret anything, but at least that is what I WANT to read out of some of the posts from Aaron or Steve

                Velocity editing should be a very basic function, it should have been implemented since the beginning. I'm also hoping they are going to add this function asap, same for a master level or line level switch, which is also a basic function of any piece of gear, especially considering the blackbox has very hot outputs. Just my personal opinion, but it seems logical to me that these functions must be implemented before anythng else, as they can really compromise the workflow or prevent you from using the blackbox (I can't use the sequencer for example, I would never write something with max velocity on each note).

                Maybe Aaron could come in and say if velocity editing will be included in an update anytime soon?

                  +1.....I use the BB very simply, but with velocity editing, unquantised sequencing and a useful multi use LFO it would be ideal (for me)!

                    You can of course edit the velocity in the xml file, but it's a faff....and computer needed! Not a 'live' workaround!

                      The LFO requests have been knocking around for a while too.

                      Agreed.

                      I guess 1010 have been working on some new products and then the Covid issue has probably slowed any kind of BB progress down. That last update looked to be a bit of a slog too. So hopefully the velocity editing, lfo and perhaps some extra effects will be addressed next.

                        So, a post about velocity. I already mentioned this in another post but there was no reaction.
                        When you use the BB to control an external synth, if you put the velocity slider to the max it should output a value of 127 but the BB sends a value of 0.
                        If you put the slider to its minimum it sends a value of 1 instead of 0.
                        This is really annoying.
                        Voilà, Cheers.

                        Yes, since getting my launchpad pro. The BB is a sound module now. Not necessarily bad. Just interesting others have concluded the same thing/solution. Its a great combo, better than the Beatstep Pro.

                          There is a crude work around if you are using the BB standalone.

                          You have a sequence with notes of say full velocity.

                          In the Seqs page, select the sequence so that it is armed for playing and recording.

                          Go to the Pads page and adjust the slider to say half velocity.

                          Go to the keys page (the slider setting made on the pads page will be retained on the keys page).

                          Press play and rec, enter a bunch of notes using one key on the keyboard (use a higher or lower note than any of your existing full velocity notes, so they are easy to find on the sequence grid page).

                          Go to the Seqs page. Press info to take you to the grid page. Use the encoders to select and move the new half velocity notes to where you want them, deleting any unwanted new and old notes as required.


                          Edit: It seems you don't have to delete the old notes. Just use the encoders to move the new notes (with a different velocity) on top of the old notes, only the new note/velocity will be heard.
                          The new note takes priority whether you are increasing or decreasing the velocity, even when the pad is set to poly.
                          Kind of makes the work around a little less long winded.

                          I have only tried this so far with drum kits/folders all loaded to one pad. I haven't tried it with pitched samples yet.

                            I'm just going to bump this thread.

                            I've been browsing through the forum and I see velocity editing pops up multiple times. Sometimes as a request in wish lists for more than one thing, and often in suggestions for alternative sequencers like step sequencers or list editors, and listed in requests for general automation editing.

                            Could velocity editing for the sequencer be one of the most popular requests on the wishlist?

                              It's definitely the most important feature and should be prioritized above all other requests
