    Does anyone have a good formula for translating db to MIDI
    velocities. The one I use is linear and scales -75 - 0 dB to vel 0 -
    127.

      That means it linear according to dB and logarithmic according to amplitude?
      I am using a hand trimmed coll for faders. But my experience for Midi
      playing amplitudes, that it seems a simple Midi/127. sounds reasonable.
      That would assume the other way around should be fine as well. It seems
      that the synths do the scaling internaly. -75 dB seems just too low.
      1/127. is -42. dB. I'd try just multiply amplitude with 127...
      (I know that you know how to do log scaling and alike, you wanted some
      aesthetical comments... ;-)
