I have the Allan Parson Sirius patch/program thingy. I love it. BUT... When I hit the B key, the bass and power is there. When I hit the G, it is weaker. It does not sound weaker on the video, but believe me, it is weaker live. And the sane with the E key..

I made a video.

I know I have to do something maybe with velocity, but I do not think that is all.
Any comments/help??

Thanks

The Automatic Gain Control on the camera's audio is masking the variation in the levels of the bass synth part played by the different keys, making the arpeggiated part seem louder when the lower two keys are played.

Try using the Program's EQ settings. They're on Edit Page #4 (accessed using the Page button). The EQ tab has Low, Mid and High gain settings, together with a Mid gain Cutoff. Just as a starting point, try setting the Mid Cutoff to something like 320Hz, and then adjust the Low Gain and Mid Gain controls to suit. The graphic on the screen will help to visualise the effects of the controls, and your ears will soon let you know when it sounds right.

Just a thought, if monitors are being used to listen to the sound, could it be that there are room resonance effects or speaker frequency response characteristics at play to give the variation in volume? Speakers of at least 8" tend to be recommended for a half decent bass response. Is the variation in volume present when using decent headphones?

I will try to investigate and maybe find a solution. That sound is a Sirius from Kronos 2 pre-Set ?

I am not sure where the sound comes from, but yes, it is the sirius pattch. It came with a load of other "famous" synth patches which include donna summer's I feel love, Baba o'reiley, pink floyd on the run,....

Thanks

That's a roland 550. 180 watts. 15" speaker and a horn tweeter.
It is definately less output from the lower keys. The B key is louder/punchier, the lower notes are weaker in comparison.
