Hi,
I just bought SD3 and I setting my module triggers.

When I look at the midi "Groove" in SD3 (for exemple a toontrack midi pack played by a real drummer) and the velocity value of the different instrument, it seems for exemple every backbeat and downbeat are at 127. Is this guy a robot or is it supposed to work like that ?

So am I right if I configure my module for my standard snare drum hit are at 127 ?

What are the good value to set the velocity output compare to the strengh of my hit ?

I don't get it either. I'm struggling with my Roland TD-50 getting the dynamics close to playable using the base 'Roland' e-drum setting as a starting point.

The velocity scaling seems out-of-whack. To my ears, the 'normal' hit level sounds on SD3 samples aren't until ~100-115 velocity but this is completely unrealistic for E-Drums where if you have it set up correctly, you're average (normal) hit velocity should be around 64, i.e. right in the middle of your overall 0-127 available dynamic range, in order to ensure you have the ability to get louder/softer. If the 'normal' sound is close to the max, where do you go from there? Somebody please make sense of this. I feel like I'm missing something fundamental.

I ask myself if at least one people know this, because your post and mine combine 170 views and no one has a answer.

I will be really happy the day I will can play a real drum at home and not these fucking pads.

The velocity 127 and general high values could be a style choice, probably when playing heavier music. If I understand how SD3 can be configured to choose articulations, you can setup a property (or load a pre-configured preset) that uses a rimshot sample for the snare when a velocity of 127 is encountered.
