Hi, I just found out that there is a possibility to calibrate the midi keyboard in terms of velocity, note off speed, pedal action. This is a really cool feature. The playing experience is much more natural after calibration than with the default settings.
For calibration you need the pianoteq gui (
ssh -X into zynthian, create new pianoteq-layer, gui opens). Then start the keyboard calibration assistant in the menu Window -> keyboard calibration assistant, which will guide you through the calibration. The result can be saved.
If you want to keep it permanently, i.e. over all instrument preset changes, you have to check the corresponding box in Window->parameter freeze and hit “set as default” button. At least according to the instructions.
Now, unexpectedly, the setting is not permanently preserved. At the latest after the restart the default settings are active again and velocity calibration is gone. But you can manually load the previously created calibration curve by calling up pianoteq gui again and clicking on velocity and then selecting the corresponding calibration entry with the previously selected name in the menu.
The second problem is that the settings made under action will be lost after a restart, even if the freeze menu (Window->parameter freeze) is checked. I wanted to switch off the sustain pedal noise permanently.
Has anyone of the pianoteq-users already looked into this problem and knows a solution?
The selected checkboxes (velocity curves, action) in the parameter freeze menu are preserved after restart but obviously that information is ignored.
The calibration file is stored under
/root/.local/share/Modartt/Pianoteq/Presets/My Presets/Velocity-fp30-calibrated.mfxp, where Velocity-fp30-calibrated is the name I chose.
But I have no idea where the freeze settings are managed.
I’m using pianoteq 6.7.3 and zyncoder: master (465929c)
zynthian-ui: master (11f49bd)
zynthian-sys: master (0a0ca11)
zynthian-data: master (74ceb35)
zynthian-webconf: master (8efc3ba)
Here is even a list of recommended velocity curves:
