FYI, i’ve added support for sostenuto pedal in several engines:
- ZynAddSubFX (this already had support from time ago)
You can, for instance, use the learning for using your sustain pedal, replacing the default “sustain” assignement (CC#64) by the “sostenuto” (CC#66).
FYI, sostenuto is slighty different to “sustain” and allow to “effects” that you can’t do with sustain. Try pushing a “bass” chord and before releasing, push sostenuto. Then, release the chord keys while maintaining the sostenuto pedal and play some notes … As you can see, the sostenuto pedal maintain the notes you had pushed before, but not the notes after … interesting
Also, i’ve added Portamento controls to Linuxsampler: Be warned! it doesn’t work with most of SFZs but it works with most of GIGs soundfonts.
FYI, portamento was added to FluidSynth some days ago too
Finally, i added the “legato” switch to FluidSynth. You can think of it as a “Mono on/off” …
