This might be a pipe dream, but here goes. So I love that aftertouch is now available since Unify 1.8. I often assign aftertouch to control filter cutoff for pads, so when I press harder it opens up the filter. I also use a physical knob on my keyboard to control CC14, often used in Unify for filter cutoff. Here's the thing. Let's say I'm playing and have moved the physical knob to say, 75%, opening up the filter. The second I press down even a bit, FC is dropped to near my initial parameter floor level of maybe 20%.

I think this is solvable, allowing use of both/either the knob for CC14 and the AT knob. What if when I manually adjusted the knob for CC14, there was a linked parameter to adjust the bottom parameter of the AT knob? That means if I manually set the knob to 50% and then pressed harder on the keyboard, aftertouch would start at 50% and go up from there, and when I let off on the pressure, it would go back down to 50%.

And if I set the knob for CC14 down to 20% the low end of the AT knob's linked parameter would also be set to 20%.

Is this already possible with some feature I'm not aware of?

@lowell

I think what you're saying is that you want to use a CC knob to set the base value for a parameter, then have Channel Pressure set how much is added to that base level. Is this correct?

I can see why this would be useful, because of the way Channel Pressure always reverts to zero (or at least, it should) when you're no longer pressing on the keys.

There isn't any way to do this using existing features in Unify. I'll give some thought to how to do it.


[You can almost achieve this using the midiCCModulator VST from the PizMidi collection, with an instance of CC Mapper in front of it, to convert Channel Aftertouch to a CC. I wasn't able to get it to work quite the way you want.]

Yes, that's what I'm thinking of. Now that I have aftertouch, I want more. 🙂 Isn't that the way?
