WHEN THE SAMPLE STARTS
Many of the sounds in this library are long. You can change the starting point of each sound by tweaking the Playback Offset Controls. This is especially useful for tailoring reverse hits to your music.
To play the detail between notes or not....
We sampled all the intervallic leaps up to an octave throughout the instruments range, both upwards and downwards. When you play two notes using Adaptive Legato it instantly analyses the interval you play and applies the appropriate transitional sample between the notes. The result is a smooth and realistic legato performance.
ADAPTIVE LEGATO vs HYBRID LEGATO
Adaptive ? Our system will change the length and volume of the transition samples
depending on how quickly you play notes -
Your input in all this ? You can control overall transition speed, how much of the "front" part of the next note is taken (how smooth do you want your legato) and overall loudness of the transition intervals.
Our Adaptive True Legato System is Monophonic.
Not limited to specific strumming patterns or rhythms -
You can choose from Bar Chords, Open Chords and Power Chords
"Free Chord Play" -
We also have a secion of the keyboard for what we call "Dead Strums". These are muted Percussive Strums. These can be used to punctuate your rhythmic Chord playing to funk up your vamps.
