If your root note is C, you could play the flamenco scale. Basically phrygian with an added major 3rd. If your root note is F, you can use a mix of harmonic and melodic minor. Anything is ok if you like the sound, there is no music police who will arrest you ;-)

Write the enharmonic equivalents of D# and A# (=Eb and Bb). Then you have the progression V-bVII-IV-I. Eb is a borrowed chord of f-minor. (As the other chords are are sus4 we even don’t know whether they’re major or minor. But if you are soloing in f-minor, it will be f- minor - or you have blue notes in mind ...). Is this o.k.? Every pthing is o.k. ...

Note-off velocity means the speed with which a pressed-down key is released back up. This information can be used for at least Rhodes electric piano sounds, so that the keys make a different release sound depending on if the keys are released softly or ”hard”. The difference in sound isn’t big, but there is a difference. An experienced player can notice the ...

If you are basing your harmony off of F minor, this chord progression makes a lot of sense especially wanting to use C major instead of C minor. This is very rooted in the traditional study of harmony by weaving though the 3 minor scales which are F natural minor, F harmonic minor, and F melodic minor which gives the following sets of notes: F natrual minor ...

No scale (I could find) contains those chords. Well, one scale that definitely contains those chords is the chromatic (12-tone) scale. You're free to use all those notes in whatever way you want! It's also likely that there's a way to see your progression in terms of diatonic scales too, if that's important to you. But to answer your question directly, If ...

The note off velocity is basically how "hard" you release the key. Like, if you let it up gently or suddenly. Some synthesizers/patches may use this information to change the release, cutting off the sound more gradually or suddenly. Not all MIDI controllers will transmit this. Many will simply send a fixed velocity. Also, an annoying detail of the MIDI ...
