How every patch works

Each patch uses three velocity layers that trigger different performances:

The lowest velocity layer triggers a sustain with its natural attack -- great for beginning a musical phrase.
The middle velocity layer (the most comfortable range) triggers a performance that's ideal for mid-phrase work and works great as a harder, starting attack.
The highest velocity layer triggers a performance with a longer non-vibrato to vibrato progression, perfect for ending phrases.

But these are simply guidelines. Depending on the musical context, you can switch between the middle and high velocity layers wherever you see fit, yielding some uniquely musical results!
