I guess this is a problem when you e.g. will control the volume, but
controlling the volume by pressure seems to be grotesque. Normal usage
might be the depth of LFO vibrato, but I do agree, in some cases e.g.
for controlling filters this can become a PITA.

Seems to be plausible, resp. such targets need a fix note on value,
while the note off velocity will change this value, but for most cases
this seems to be groteque.

For the release rate this seems to be plausible.

E.g. the way a rotary speaker simulation should become slower.

Good thoughts :). I guess you've got experiences with note off velocity.
I've got experiences with MIDI for around 25 years, but no experiences
with note off velocity and key pressure.

Your thoughts might be important for people who program virtual synth
for Linux.
