Further investigations into converting GPO gigs to Konakt
After what I thought were successful conversions (because of no error messages) by Kontakt 2.02 I discovered on playing the back that many were truncated(sounded cut off). [NOTE: there may be other issues but I'm limiting myself to these for now to avoid confusion]
I even resurrected my version of Gigastudio 2.5.3 to see how it handled the original GOS gig files as a reference
I got so confused with all the possible conversions I was trying
Kontakt 1.5.3 - Kontakt 2.02 - Chicken Systems "Translator" that I decided to take a much smaller sample of the possible instruments to concentrate on.
Right now I'm limiting myself to direct conversions by K2.02 and only the 1st violins short bows.
Here's what I found with the 1st Vlns Marcarto instrument
When imported by directly by k2.02 all sounds are truncated (cut off very quickly). In fact some of them I hear only a "click" without any musical note.
I discovered that going into the Modulation section of the instrument that the "Hold" and "Sustain" controls are set to zero (0). The envelope looks like an inverted "V",(Steep rise and immediate steep decent). If I increased either HOLD or SUSTAIN controlls enough I regained the full use of the samples.
Same with 1st vln Sautille mf
Same with 1st Vln Sul Tasto mf
Anyone else trying this ?
When I get time I'll try bulk conversions and Translator to see what happens
