I'm finding even with the most sensitive settings I have to hit the pads pretty hard to get a good velocity. I'm on the latest version of S1 Pro 5 and atom firmware is 1.15. Is this just how it functions or did I maybe get a defective unit?

With the most sensitive setting, you hit soft thru hard. If you decrease sensitivity, you should reach higher velocity w/o hitting as hard.

See : viewtopic.php?p=263364#p263364

I find the same, that the pads are too hard to press to register. The only solution would be to use SOFT & fixed velocity from inspector such as 80% for example but you will lose all velocity expression. (everything will sound same velocity).

They should reconsider the values.

The current velocity settings are useless for melodies because with normal playing (not to break fingers on the pads) it registers :

on HARD from 10% to 30% (so it is too low to express)
on MEDIUM from 31% to 60%
on SOFT from 61% to 95%

So the only useful is SOFT for normal playing and MEDIUM for calm passages at most.

But it would have been much better if :
HARD was 40% to 60%
MEDIUM 60% to 80%
SOFT 80% to 100%.

compared to my above perceived estimations.

Basically they need to raise sensitivity for all presets to much higher levels.
