sw_vel

Allows overriding the velocity for the region with the velocity of the previous note.

Values can be:

  • current: Region uses the velocity of current note.
  • previous: Region uses the velocity of the previous note.

Example #

sw_vel=previous

Setting this to previous is useful for making certain legato instruments sound smoother and more consistent.

At least in ARIA, this affects only volume, and using velocity to modulate pitch or filter cutoff will use the current note’s velocity regardless of how sw_vel is set.
