Postman has just delivered my GPO yay! all installed and running, theres just one thing I cant work out!
How do I alter the attack on an instrument? I just cant seem to find a way!
Any help most welcome!!!!
Hello! Welcome. You can also affect accented attacks by adding one of the "aggressive" patches to the attack. In the aggressive brass CC16 also controls level of aggressiveness. Legato attacks are made by depressing the sustain pedal (CC64).
Again, welcome to the best music forum on the web.
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
For slow swells then its the modwheel combined with close to zero velocity key hitting.
The other way of getting faster attack - though this is not what you are asking, and in addition to the 'aggressive' patches and the hitting the key harder suggested by the other veterans, is to use the sustain pedal. In many patches the sustain pedal cuts off the attack portion and if the sample has a slow programmed attack, then holding down sustain gives more initial bite by getting rid of this attack portion. Its supposed to be used for legato style playing but can be used to get more initial bite. NB you have to have your GPO options set for the right option (no sustenato but midi controller I think) for this to work.
I seem to remember cc16 can be used as well for forcefulness of aggressive patches.
