Hello all!

Finally getting to grips with my Kronos 2 and there’s one thing that’s really bugging me. On an acoustic piano, you get no sound when you play the keys with your lightest or slowest attendance to the instrument. However, no matter how softly I press the Kronos’s keys with a piano setting, I always get a note. My Roland RD700 allows you to press keys essentially with velocity zero and get no sound - is this something other users have found? Is there a way of altering the settings so that it takes some “realistic” force before the Kronos makes a sound?

in global mode set the velocity curve to 9, that mimics the response of an acoustic piano.

If you happen to mainly use your Kronos ear a computer, you can also create your own velocity curves (see the link in my sig below).

Note that if you choose silence for the lowest MIDI velocity values, then for those you will lose the emulated effect of acoustic piano sympathetic resonance. In other words, on an acoustic piano you slowly push a few keys without sound and hold them and after playing let's say a loud staccato chord related to those held keys you can hear them vibrate by sympathetic resonance.

So again, this emulation behavior on the Kronos SGX-2 engine will work normally if you select any preset velocity curve on the Kronos, but if you create a custom velocity curve to silence the lowest MIDI velocity values, this effect will only work for keys with output MIDI velocities above zero.
