Just picked up Unify and have a Q about MIDIBox
I like this MIDI phrase player and features, though I can't seem to get it to respond to the incoming MIDI controller note on velocity.
I see the velocity curve, the scale and offset transformers, but are these only there to effect the MIDI file velocity?
I was hoping to effect the velocity during performance.
As a workaround, should I precede it with a velocity to CC converter and send that CC to a macro knob connected to the MIDIBox velocity offset?
MIDIBox does not currently provide a way to adjust output note-velocities in response to the trigger note velocity.
Your idea of using a velocity-to-CC converter plug-in is a good one (although of course this will only work monophonically, for one input note at a time), but note that CC messages output by a plug-in cannot be routed directly to the macro parameters of the Unify instance that hosts that plug-in. The way around this is to use an embedded Unify instance (click link for details), and set up its macro knobs to respond to the specific CC you want to use.
If the instrument plug-in you want to control has any kind of MIDI-learn function, it might be simpler to just set up that instrument's volume to respond directly to your chosen MIDI CC.

I'll work on some methods to get velocity going there.
