Adjusting the Velocity Map Sensitivity

Question:
How can I adjust the velocity response (sensitivity) of the keys to suit my taste?

Answer:

Adjusting the Velocity Map allows you to globally customize the sensitivity of the piano keys' response to your preferred playing style. There are 10 different settings (maps) to choose from:

  • Linear (default setting)
  • Light 1
  • Light 2
  • Light 3
  • Hard 1
  • Hard 2
  • Hard 3
  • Piano Touch
  • Easy Touch
  • GM Receive

Please see pg. 9-2 in the SP5 Musician's Guide for a description of each. Ultimately, trying out each will be the best method to determine your favorite.


Steps to Select a Different VMap:

  1. Press GLOBAL, then the Chan/Param Up (∧) arrow button until you see:
    Global          2/30
    VelocityMap:Linear

  2. Press either the Previous(-) OR Next(+) to scroll (backwards or forwards respectively) through the above list of choices. The selection takes effect immediately upon selection.

    For example here we selected the "Piano Touch" map:

    Global          2/30
    VelocityMap:PianoTouch
  3. Press PROGRAM or SETUP to exit the Global mode.

Note: This setting change will be remembered across power cycles.
