MIDI velocity curve in BM3 ?

Hi - I'm a new BM3 user. My controller keyboard's velocity output is a little weak... even banging the keys registers below 127. Does BM3 have a way to set a velocity curve for incoming MIDI? I'd like to add ~15% velocity to every incoming velocity message.

I'd prefer not to buy another app if possible, so any insight into BM3 (or AUM) native capabilities would be helpful.

A forum search yields a nice plug-in called MIDI Tools. It's way overkill for me, but an option. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/midi-tools/id1446209019



  • I don't believe BM3 or AUM will do this.
    The app you linked is imo a must-have. Not only can you boost velocity, but you can also slightly randomize the output velocity for more of a human-feel. Plus there's a bunch of other plugins that let you record the output of MIDI AUs, plus filter, merge, & modify MIDI data. It gets around many of BM3 deficiencies.

  • Thanks @StudioES! Do you know how MIDI Tools would work for what I need in BM3?  Would it load as a MIDI effect and route through the velocity curve before it triggers notes in, say, a soft synth?

  • That's it exactly. Just load it into the MIDI FX slot. Set Pad to KEYS MODE. (I don't think it works in the default PAD MODE.)

    1 problem w/ BM3 is that once most MIDI FX are loaded, you no longer can hear anything when you play BM3's Pads or your MIDI controller. In that case use Bus &/or Route plugins.
