Auto-Legato Controls (including auto-trills)
Auto-Legato is a convenient way to create smooth legato note transitions
whenever note overlaps are present. This feature automatically detects note
overlaps and applies changes to the attack and decay characteristics of the
note transitions. There is one control button.
On/Off button. This activates/disables Auto-Legato. The button lights when
activated. This switch can also be controlled using CC#102.
This control also provides auto-trills. This is an extremely convenient way to create trills.From a
MIDI keyboard, just hold the first note of the trill while pressing and lifting the second note of the
trill and the two notes will alternate.
Please note that Auto-Legato works monophonically and can cause loss of that instrument’s ability to
play chords (polyphonically). Auto-Legato is mainly for use as an easier way to achieve legato. You may
get better results with manual techniques, though they take more effort.
Also, please note that if you
are using a notation program, legato is handled in a different way and corresponds to CC#68.
