Ben, I wonder what happens if you cancel out velocity with negative or zero in 
modulators and assign breath #2 to velocity and volume. The dynamic in harmonic 
content is dependent on velocity on many sound modules but having midi 
monitored the output of the ewi I noticed the note on message long after a 
series of volume increases. I also think the note off message might be 
unnecessary if the velocity interacts correctly. Of course this is only
