I’m trying to lower the volume of the rimshot articulations on the Canopus Bronze Piccolo snare. I’ve lowered the midi velocity range and the Output curve, which should have some impact, but I’m not hearing any change at all. Any thoughts on what I could be doing wrong here? Or another way of going about what I’m trying to achieve? Thanks in advance.
Select (click on) the Snare and then Model in the right hand panel.
Select Rim Shot from Articulations and adjust to taste.
The Output Curve works for incoming MIDI. So, if you are using the internal engine to play stuff you will not hear a difference. You need to either play it live on a controller, or lay the groove on a track (in your DAW) and have it feed BFD. Only then will the difference be noticeable.
If you ask me, the internal engine should follow the output curve too.
For predictable results, do as @SoundMILL suggests.
good point. (it’s the only way I use it, didn’t note the alternatives.)
Thank you! I overlooked the “Model” button. doh! All good now.
