    We make sure that the sampler volume is turned up.

    There are two sampler modes.
    • The blue sampler mode. This is going to play anything at maximum volume when we press it.
    • The velocity sampler mode. We press the "SHIFT" and "SAMPLER" keys. The sampler buttons will turn purple. Now, the sampler will play at the volume based on how hard we press the key.
