Advice on controller/velocity setting for Acoustic Pianos using Kontakt
I use an Oberheim MC2000 controller which has adjustable velocity settings. I am quite a heavy player and use the "Heavy" setting for controlling my JV2080 which gives a nice to play piano sound (recognising the limitations of the JV2080s piano sound).
I have experimented with the velocity settings of the Oberheim and Kontakt and seem to have found the best at "medium-heavy" on the Oberheim and -1 in Kontakt's velocity setting. However I still feel that it plays quite notchy between velocity layers and its very difficult to get a smooth uniform sound without one note triggering the high velocity sample.
How have others got on with the NI Akoustik Piano library? Is this a trait of the library or are my settings all wrong.

Did you check the velocity values that are sent by the MC2000 (with MIDI Ox or Pure Data for example)? My old stage piano outputs something between 20 and 115, so definitely not 1-127. I correct this in software before applying any velocity curve.
