I\'ve just received the Post Harpsichords vol 1, and I\'m very pleased with it.
(Well, I\'m not impressed by the lutes)
However I noticed a short delay between pressing a key and the start of the sound.
I exported a few samples to .wav and viewed them in WaveLab Light.
It appeared that there was a silence of about 36 ms (about 1600 samples)
The silence was not complete: zooming in the y direction (amplitude) showed some noise.
However the \"real\" signal starts later.
Also, this period of silence differed from note to note.
Although I examined only 6 notes/instrument the silence varied between 1610 and 1940 samples.
Luckily, the instrument editor allows you to start the playback from an offset, so I entered
the value 1611 for all the samples. I didn\'t want to examine each sample seperaty.
The question is: Why this silence?
Does this emulate a real harpsichord?
Was the software for determining the start of signal to sensitive?
Did they forget it?
