Here is my note-by note understanding of the solo snare-on dynamic key assignments. This is from page 36 of the VI percussion manual. Am I reading it correctly? The differences in the dynamic level are sometimes difficult to hear. 

C#7 strong 0.5 seconds. ( black key )

D7  medium 0.5 seconds ( white key )

D#7 strong 1 second ( black key )

E7 medium 1 second ( white key )

F7 medium 2 seconds ( white key ) 

F#7 strong 2 seconds ( black key )

G7 medium 4 seconds ( white key )

G#7 strong 4 seconds ( black key )

A7 medium 8 seconds ( white key )

A#7 strong 8 seconds ( black key )

At an unchanging note velocity of 80, and the AB switch set on B for the diminuendo, G7 ( white key ) sounds like strong 4 seconds and G#7 ( black key ) sounds like medium 4 seconds -- A7 ( white key ) sounds like strong 8 seconds  and A#7 ( white key ) sounds like medium 8 seconds. 

But the manual says the strong dynamics are on the black keys. 

Possibly the white F7 key should have been skipped to keep the strong / medium = black / white ordering preserved.
