I just started programming some drums tracks. I tap them out on the keyboard and then go in and edit the timing. But everything is super loud (velocity 127).
I'm thinking, it's probably better to have the drum volume lower but the track volume higher (which would produce the same playback volume) because this still allows for parts with increased volume.
So how loud should the "normal" drum parts be?
Well for starters, don't have all of your velocities at 127 man. Velocity is not the volume control.
