i can't for the life of me figure out why I can't get slurs to work through overture. I've loaded all the instruments that I will be using in GPO studio. when I add the slurs it doesn't register with GPO's sounds. I even went through the tutorial and it didn't even register like the sample mp3 in the tutorial. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Do I have to have the sequencer running in order for it to take effect?
The slur is a graphic only tool on many notation programmes. If you want it to sound, my experience is that you select the notes in the slur (except the last one as aready mentioned) and adjust the notes duration setting in the notes menu. Normally this is set to 90 percent to give a clean attack to the succeeding note. 100 percent achieves the legato slur. In a sequencer, this can be edited further to give a fraction of overlap between notes if desired. Basically, legato is achieved by removed the attack element of succeeding notes.
thanks guys. I finally figured most of it out. the intuative functions of overture rather unique. I've been used to finale- as we have an ancient one here at home. I've found that overture is slightly easier to use.
