OK, I haven't seen this Kurzweil thingy, but if you feeling brave you
could always hack the thing to get at the analogue signal inside the
unit. This is what I have done inside my D-50's aftertouch sensor, its a
simple 0-5V CV that can be patched straight into the modular. No need to
go to the MIDI middle man. Et viola no quantised stepping. But, all of
which could have avoided if Roland and others had adopted the full
16-bits allocated for aftertouch in the first place.
