Cannot get full volume from Twist 2 using my midi keyboard

macOS 10.13.6
Logic Pro X 10.4.1
M-Audio Oxygen 25 (IV)
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface

Hello, I've logged a support call with Sonivox, but I'm asking here in case someone can help, especially as the weekend is upon us and I'm keen to use Twist 2!

I've just installed Twist 2.3.31 and the plugin looks very powerful, however, I have the problem whereby when I press keys on my midi keyboard the resultant sounds are very quiet.

Yet when I select the same notes in the Plugin's own virtual keyboard, the notes play at full volume.

How can I get the midi keyboard to play notes properly?

UPDATE: I've done some googling and I've found a few posts which talk about changing the midi velocity response of the keyboard, but I'm reluctant to do this since my other plugins all respond normally to midi input from the keyboard.

  • Hi Carl,

    Thanks for posting. This is a strange issue that I haven't come across before.

    Do you experience this with any other plugins on your computer? Additionally, have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling your software? Does this issue occur with every patch?

    Let's run a test to make sure your controller is sending MIDI data properly. Follow these steps below:

    **Before you run MIDI-OX connect the MIDI Controller and power on.

    1. Download and install MIDI-OX.
    2. Run the MIDI OX application.
    3. Select the Options menu and select MIDI Devices. Make sure to select MIDI inputs and MIDI Outputs for the MIDI controller, in this case, the USB Audio Device and click OK.
    4. Select the View menu and select Input Monitor. The field type, Data1, contains the CC information. Test the functions of your controller in the monitor.

    MIDI Monitor - Mac OS X -

    What is it MIDI Monitor? MIDI Monitor is a free utility for Mac OS X which displays MIDI signals in a variety of formats. It can watch both incoming and outgoing MIDI streams and can filter them by message type and channel. Musicians will find it handy for tracking down confusing MIDI problems. Programmers can use it to test MIDI drivers and applications. MIDI Monitor is free to download and use.

    1. Download, and Install MIDI Monitor.
    2. Open MIDI Monitor.
    3. Click on the Sources tab to view MIDI devices. Confirm that your USB/MIDI device is listed.
    4. Once you confirm your MIDI device is connected and listed. Play any key(s) on your keyboard/controller to confirm each button or key is sending data to your computer. If your device is working you will see a message with data like below. The device is not sending data you may have a hardware issue.
