I know it's ages old, but I must ask this again, still using GPO4:
Whenever I'm using alternating bow strokes KS the direction will continuously alternate. Even when pressing the KS again, or changing to another technique temporarily. There is no way to "reset" the direction?
This means, look if I have triplets or a piece with an odd timing, or simply stop the piece somewhere and return playing, it simply starts either with a up or down stroke, without me having any control over it.
That means various string start messing up or the need to render a piece several times, until I somehow "get lucky" and each instrument starts in an acceptable direction (or you simply won't notice).
But really, there must be some way to be able to control where and when the up-down direction starts.
Ideally this would reset to an upstroke for each time pressing the KS. Maybe I can even modify the .sfz files myself having some experience making my own patches
I'm trying to make some Vivaldi styled string music, knowing he was an violin virtuoso, you simply cannot accept leaving bowing direction to good fortune.
