Hi Unify Support,

When I use the Unify keyboard with a mouse I can:

Click on a key, mouse down then drag away, off the keyboard, and the key continues to play

When I move the cursor back to the keyboard from down-screen to another key I can trigger that key.

However if I try the same sequence of actions only from up-screen: nothing happens.

Does that make sense?

It would be nice if the from-up-screen mouse over triggered the keys as well.

Regards,
Peter

On my PC at least, clicking on a key, then dragging up and back down does trigger another note, but at reduced volume. This is because the on-screen keyboard simulates key velocity according to the distance from the top of the key to the click-point (or in this case, the drag-in point).

Please explain how you would use this feature.

Unify's on-screen keyboard was only originally only for display of input MIDI notes (e.g., for John's YouTube videos); it didn't respond to mouse clicks at all. I added the click-ability to provide a quick way to test the program when no external MIDI keyboard was available. I never meant it to be used to actually play notes.

Hi Shane,

I am in the middle of upgrading my system disk and my PC is a bit non-functional midi-wise. That's why I was using the on screen keyboard.

 

Your explanation resolves my issues.

 

Thanks for that,

 

Peter
