Just got my little white box yesterday — managed to sell my Novation Circuit for US$250 so the upgrade to M:S was only about $75
Practically the first thing I noticed is that the pads are not very sensitive: to get a loud-enough sound I have to really bang hard on them. I did some experimentation with different levels of impact and checking the recorded MIDI velocity values: a regular tap, the kind I’m used to with the Circuit or LaunchPad Pro, only scores a velocity of 10-20, and even whacking the pads as hard as I dared only got up to 90. I feel like I’d need to use a hammer to attain 127!
Is there any way to adjust the pad sensitivity? All I’ve found from the manual is a setting to disable velocity-sensitivity entirely, but I don’t want that. I’d just like to scale it up by a factor of 2 or so. (The forum software is pulling up some related threads as I write this, but only about the Analog Rytm, not Model:Samples.)
Or is it possible I’ve got a defective unit with dodgy pads? It seems unlikely that all six would have the same problem!
