Sustain in setBfree


Is possible to use the sustain pedal as a sustain pedal in the hammond emulator? Now it works as an enable/disable for the rotation. Thanks!


Hi @jordisilv,

Yes, I think there are two ways:

  1. You have to edit the configuration files for setbfree directly on the Zynthian (via ssh).
  2. I am not 100% sure, but you can try to use setbfreak in MOD-UI and try to advise the MIDI controllers. If this does not work, I can add this to setbfreak - but not the next weeks.

Regards, Holger


Ok, thanks! I’ll try!

Regards. Jordi.


I’m not sure that setBfree implements “sustain”. It’s an emulation of Hammond B3 that doesn’t have a sustain switch. I know that some popular plugins, like the Native B4, implements the sustain pedal as an “extra feature”, but setBfree use the sustain switch for changing the rotary speed, that normaly have sense in a “hammond emulation context” :wink:
