MINIMUM VELOCITY SETTING = F (highest octave) Range 00-127 This setting determines how loud your softest hits will sound. Lowering this number will make your soft hits sound softer. Raising this number will turn even soft hits into loud sounds (if the maximum velocity is set to max, 127)  

MAXIMUM VELOCITY SETTING = G (highest octave) Range 00-127 This setting determines how loud your loudest hits will sound. Lowering this number will make your loud hits sound softer.  

VELOCITY CURVE = A (highest octave) Range 01-11 This setting determines how the loudness of a sound varies as your hits go from soft to hard. It determines how fast a sound goes from the minimum velocity setting to the maximum velocity setting as you play from soft to hard.

Some curves work in reverse. The harder you play, the softer the sound gets. See the Appendix for Velocity Curve Documentation.  

VOLUME SETTING =B (highest octave) Range 00-127 This setting determines the overall volume of a patch on your sound source. When you enter a KIT SETUP, the volume command is sent to your synth. This acts like a MIDI Mixer, so you can control the volume of sound from patch to patch.

The volume will be overridden by the Foot Controllers if you are using them to control volume.
