MaestroTools works very well in mono mode to aid in getting true legato. Another method (which doesn\'t involve setting up Maestro Tools for a piece in which legato isn\'t always desired and mono mode won\'t work)is to set up your patch so that EG modulation is controlled by a controller of your choice (I use C18). Make sure attack time is at max and decay time set to taste (I use 1/4 of max). This instrument will now respond to attack and release times based on 0-127, the highter numbers equal longer times. Finally, increase your gate times (note lengths) to about 110% of full value. This won\'t always look correct in your notation view because notes will appear overlapped. But you will have the legato sound you want and can instantly adjust the legato, or remove it entirely.
