Neole asked on a thread here: \"What can be mapped to the sustain pedal to allow legato playing? [If I] could map the first C key to act as [the Hold Pedal], it would be good. Any way?\"
One way is through MFX, and I made it happen tonight! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] (yes, it\'s Friday evening: I never claimed I had a social life! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] )
TenCrazy.com MFX Key Peddler allows you to use any key on your keyboard to act in place of a Hold Pedal in order to let you play legato lines in Garritan Personal Orchestra without a physical sustain pedal.
Key Peddler defaults to substituting your C6 key (base octave -2) for the sustain pedal (CC#64) to allow for legato playing. If you want to use a different key, use the slider to adjust it, or use the \"Learn\" button: click it and the next key you press will become your target key! Also, use the CC slider if you want to simulate a different pedal/toggle controller.
As with my other GPO-inspired plugin, MFX PW-Map, I\'m pushing this under my \"BeggingWare\" model. Essentially, if you like this plugin and can use it, drop Gary Garritan a line (or post in this thread!) and suggest that I\'m *such* a nice guy that I deserve a discount on GPO!

Have fun, and give a holler if you like it, or even just have problems getting it to work. I\'m here to help.
