Any tweakers out there know of a way to get a smoother transition from open to closed hat when using keygroup switching? The open hat tends to shut off very abruptly when the closed is played, and someone has expressed an interest in reducing this \'abruptness\'.
I was wondering if adding a release sample to the open hat would work. Problem is the switching in a keygroup isn\'t so much note off dependent as it is determined by new note ons of other notes in the group.
Maybe you\'re idea is the best at the moment.
Programme a special separate region with a layer of the closed hat and tail of an open hat. You would just have to remember to always play this region after an open hat, then play the other closed hat only regions for the rest of the closed hat part.
Not too hard to do if it\'s not a hat with 16 way velocity split [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
I\'m not sure it is a solution but what I would do is an enhancement in the MIDI pedal sustain/expression/velocity events (tail effects).
maybe We need three elements: Hihat closed, opened and pedal in order to emulate the realistic sound, for example.
Unlike other instruments, within the sequencer/song, it just be a few bars as re-useable template, which can be populated (repeated) in all the rest of drum patterns.
Of course you all are right, it should be done in the sample library as \"released\" triggering, it would be exactly how the hihats supposed to work.
Just a thought,
