I'm wondering why with the GPO harps my sustain pedal works in reverse--it cuts off the harp strings and makes them almost staccato. When the pedal is not in use, the notes sound more sustained, but not quite as much as I would expect with a pedal. (The pedal works in the normal way for all other instruments, both GPO and non-GPO, so I don't think it's the pedal's setting.)
I'm currently using Garageband and have a 76-key Korg Triton Extreme keyboard. Any thoughts? And is this the right place to post this?
The harps work as intended. You get hand stopped samples when depressing the pedal. With a "normal" sustain action you won't get a longer decay; the release envelopes are set at 6.4s so you get almost all there is in the samples.
This is actually a reasonable way to program the harps, since you don't have to depress a pedal on a physical harp to let the tone decay in its full length.
