Sounds like you need to also cancel the default velocity-to-attenuation modulator:
  • Source: Note-On Velocity
  • Source curve: concave negative unipolar
  • Destination: Attenuation (volume envelope)
  • Amount Source: 0

Hi all.

I implemented the CC2 modulator in a sax soundfont, and loaded it into my RPi2 fluidsynth. I set the EWI to CC2 and the velocity setting to ZERO. This makes the EWI produce "dynamic velocity". What I found was that I could start a note at low breath pressure, and resulting low volume, and swell it, but only a bit. If I started a note at higher breath pressure I could swell it more. So, it seems that you can't swell to full volume unless you start with a decently loud note in the first place.

In practical terms, you (well, I) rarely need to swell to full volume from nothing, but I just thought I better mention it. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I did test setting a fixed velocity (mid range), and it seemed to work OK.
