So… I have a Roland digital piano I use as my input device to my Zynthian. The Roland seems to send key-off velocities proportional to the key release velocity, rather than the more common “note-on at 0 velocity” to end a note. I quite like a lot of the orchestral patches available in Linuxsampler, but many of them have separate release samples. Linuxsampler seems to use the key-off velocity to determine the volume of the release sample. For example Salamander piano has release samples, so it’s quite possible to play a soft (pp) note and get an unnaturally loud (FF) release “ring” sample if you don’t take care to release the key slowly. An acoustic piano doesn’t behave in this way so it requires a significant adaption of keyboard technique to get a consistent sound. Out of curiosity, is there any acoustic instrument where the release sound can be louder than the attack/sustain?
On the Zynthian is there any way to filter the key-off velocity messages in some way so that they are aligned with the key-on velocity messages? Maybe it requires some tinkering with the way Linuxsampler handles note-off messages, if that’s even possible?
