Inline attack velocity
The default attack velocity for notes is MIDI value 64. This can
be changed by adding
# is an integer between 1
and 127. Here is an example of starting the attack velocities at
30 and then changing to 100 to make the notes louder:
Attack velocities can be locally modified by adding one or more
decrease or increase the attack velocity. By default
v will decrease
the attack velocity by 10, and
V will increase the velocity by 10.
In the following example, the attack velocities start at 10 and
increase by 10 to 100 at the last note.
The volumne increment of
V can be set with
*vstep:#. In the following
V adjusts the base velocity by 5 units instead of 10:
Attack velocity tandem spine
For numeric control of attack velocity, a separate column entitled
be given to the right of the
**ratio spine that it applies to. If a
spine is present after a
**ratio spine, the inline velocity system is deactivated
in favor of the
**vel spine method.
If there are null tokens (
.) in the
**vel spine, then the previous explicit
value will be used (or the default of
64 if there is no previous value.
