Instrument 1 velocity range

I love my Instrument 1 but the velocity range is so narrow it’s kind of ridiculous. Especially when plucking the bridge. I can only get a range of 10-20 velocity values and not very reliably either. I’m guessing it’s a hardware limitation?

Hi Eric. Have you already tried adjusting the Method Sensitivity for your INSTRUMENT 1? You can find that under the Settings channel in the INSTRUMENT 1 app.

I did. It doesn’t change anything other than where the range value starts. At low it’s around 40-60 for example. The low E string at least gives me something to work with like 40-100 but the other ones are stuck within 40-53ish. Going into 60s and sometimes 70s when I hit them really hard. I mean everything else works really well but the whole point of having separate hands for holding notes and triggering them is to have more expressivity. Why not give it a full 127 range? If it’s not a hardware issue it needs to be fixed. If it is, i hope there will be a version 2.. I would pay much more for a more polished/enhanced version of I1.

Interesting. We're trying that on our end and getting a wider range, even on the low sensitivity setting, so it may be a problem with your INSTRUMENT 1. I just responded to your ticket with some more information regarding a potential warranty replacement 

Is it much wider than what I’m getting? And does setting it to higher method sensitivity actually give you wider range than lower options?
