I've just recently bought a velocity sensitive pad controller for finger drumming, sequencing, etc. I'm rapidly finding that I have great difficulty playing notes at a consistent velocity. I'll tap on the pads with what feels like the same amount of force, but get wildly different velocities every time.
What practice techniques exist for getting consistent velocities from pad controllers?
(I know that I can use a midi filter to set all the notes to the same velocity, but I'd really like to be able to drum expressively.)
