The first strobe had plenty of presets with after touch, I'm actually trying the legacy presets, same name, same sound, except no after touch. I switched back and forth between strobe 1 and 2, so its not my keyboard or a midi problem.
Am I missing something here? Or is the after touch feature in the presets really gone?
Probably your problem is that Aftertouch isn't mapped to anything.
IIRC the easiest way to map it should be to enter CC LEARN mode, click on Perf1 or Perf2, then press down on a key until your controller sends an aftertouch message. This should bind aftertouch to the perf control.
