how to even use velocity?

alrighty, so I have been experimenting with velocity on my hihat sounds lately, especially with my lasted beat battle submission, and I was wondering, is there any ways I can use it for anything but variety?

Re: how to even use velocity?

I can give you an example:

Similar stuff can be found in most third-party samplers, softsynths (thinking about Massive). You basically can link velocity to control some values, just like any automation within slider/dial.

Re: how to even use velocity?

One can use velocity to control any parameter, not just the amplitude/volume (as you first think of when someone says "velocity").
One can set velocity to control filter cutoff, sample start offset, pitch, amplitude decay time, amount of saturation, etc etc.
One can stack 127 samples on the different velocity values of a single note/drum-pad/key.
