Thanks for your prompt reply. Here’s the reply to your questions:
I tried playing GarageBand, ThumbJam and Thor on my iPad and with Bench on my laptop.
I already changed the velocity to 127 before posting on the Community Forum.
I will next change the curve to as high as possible as you recommend.
Before posting I completely covered the “hole in the bell” with tape. That allowed me to get a faint sound.
I’m a runner living at high altitude in Colorado. Fortunately,enough breath isn’t an issue.
Thanks again for your help getting this glitch worked out. I really appreciate it!
