I've created a track which involves the Brooklyn drumset's snare (to be more specific the G#0 on the piano roll).

My problem is that the sound varies between 2 different sounds randomly. One is more hollow and the other is more flat/hitting the edge maybe?

Youtube and Google couldn't help me, but I'm sure one of you guys can! :)

    Is there a way in garageband to check the velocity of the midi note? Aug 18, 2019 at 9:22

1 Answer 1


Usually, depending on the velocity (how hard you hit your piano key), the sound changes. So a very hard hit would be triggering a different sound than a soft stroke.

If you found a sound you like, look up the velocity of that particular note (you can check the piano roll in Garageband), and set that velocity to all your other notes.
