Legato

Legato

Postby wcreed51 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 1:26 pm

How can I get the first note under a slur to trigger the legato rule? I have these condition:

<if condition="under-slur" />
<if condition="slurred-attack" />

but it doesn't switch to the legato patch until the second note.

under-slur will trigger the effect for anything tied to or from a slur.
slurred-attack will only trigger the rule if the start of the pitch is part of the slur

With these conditions, I would not expect the first note of a slurred passage to trigger the rule.

If you want the first note of a slurred passage to trigger the legato effect, then try "slurred-release" by itself or to replace "slurred-attack".

Both of those option result is correct playback of the legato, but if the note that precedes the legato passage is a staccato, there's an added note, almost like a grace note.

Do you mind sharing your rules so I can take a deeper look?

I'm not sure if this will solve the issue, but give the following rules file a shot and see what happens. All I did was remove the flag references (except for the first and last rule).

I don't suppose any of the CC values you are tweaking have some sort of repeat function?

If the first rule set doesn't work, try this one. I cut the staccato notes short (even though you clearly have a separate patch).

Cutting the staccato notes short with <duration-change amount="0.80" /> does the trick. I added that to my original rules.

So now the performance is correct, but when I just play notes on the keyboard, it doesn't reset to the main patch. It selects the keyswitch from staccato, but doesn't send either of the cc settings.

Notion has no way to identify the keyswitch through the Auditioning capabilities of using the keyboard to play notes in a VST. It will always resort to your main sound keyswitch when auditioning. I realize that this is a little frustrating, but you have to use a document with playback of actual articulations/techniques to be able to Audition your rules. There is a ticket submitted with this feature request and this is currently working as designed. It is certainly something that we need to work through.

Right, that's what I'm saying. It's not returning to the main sound.
