I'm using the vmpk software so I can use my computer keyboard as a controller for my drum VI (Audio Assault Westwood). I want to assign one MIDI note to two keys so I can perform more realistic and fluid rolls. The problem is that vmpk doesn't support this feature. Worse yet, the Drum VI I mentioned above doesn't allow you to assign samples to empty MIDI Notes, so I'm screwed on both ends.
However, I was reading a thread on the vmpk forum about someone who modified a .xml files that allowed him to have two keys play the same MIDI note. I'm not a programmer, so his info went right over my head. Here's a link to the thread (his post is the last one): https://sourceforge.net/p/vmpk/discussion/854991/thread/04950eef/
For whatever reason I don't have the permission to post in the vmpk forum and the support over there is dreadful. I was hoping someone on this site might have figured out a different workaround, or could help me out with this .xml file. I don't have the cash to buy one of the expensive drum VI's that have the features for what I want to do. I don't even have enough to buy as USB keyboard for a controller, hence vmpk.
