Im currently working on a sampling project...(Fender Rhodes Stage MKI)...and im having questions popping up about recording releases...WHATS THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS...Im confused as to what technique I should use to get accurate release samples (i.e. the hammer\'s returnig to the UNdepressed position) and how do I match the release trigger to the appropriate velocity...meaning...when you strike a note the release is going to be different...depending on how long the note has been sustaining...(i.e. stacatto notes versus sustained notes)...is there anyway for the giga platform to accomodate this??? I apologize if my meager intimation is confusing..I appreciate all information you could provide!
I don\'t know if there is any way to alter the release sample depending on how long your note durations are. It would essentially require that Gigasampler be aware of your playing and it\'s really not designed to do that quite yet.
I think you\'re going to have to find a happy medium duration-wise and go with that. I think that you\'ll be limited to different velocities of release samples. What I think Scarbee was referring to was a global setting that tells Giga when and how long to trigger the release sample.
There is a hair-brained control for adjusting release sample volume depending on time. It doesn\'t really work, though. I have made suggestions to Tascam about this matter and am hopeful that they will include this in version 3. Release samples are a bastard.
the release control is rather hair brained [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
They need a seconds control on that sucker not a bar slider...
Anyhow. There is the possiblity of building a layered instrument with different release control times. But you will run into the problem of getting two release samples triggered for staccatto notes. This could sound pretty bad with the phasing/chorusing effectsit can cause.
There is the possibility of makign more than 2 splits with the release triggers...but it doesn\'t do anything...too bad that could be cool for something like this
What you may want to do is make a dimension keyswitch mod wheel or something that switches between two different release triggers and the same sustain samples.
