When I import a VSQ file created in VOCALOID2, all the VEL (velocity) values are set to 64.
In VOCALOID4, the effect of the VEL (velocity) setting has been improved compared to VOCALOID2. This improvement can cause a significant change in output sound levels if VSQ files created in VOCALOID2 are imported as-is. Hence, VOCALOID4 Editor intentionally sets VEL levels to the default value (64) when importing a VSQ file created in VOCALOID2. For the same reason, the software also sets the OPE (opening) parameter to its default value (127) when reading that parameter.

How can I enter notes in the 33rd measure and later?
When you start VOCALOID4 Editor, it automatically generates one part with 32 measures. You can change the length of this part. To change the length of the part, use the arrow tool (Right-click the Track Editor and then select "Arrow") to point to the rightmost end of the part (the area in light green) on the Track Editor. The mouse pointer changes to a red arrow. Then, you can drag the pointer horizontally to adjust the length of the part. If you want to enter notes in the 33rd measure or later, drag the pointer further to the right.
