Tubular Bells and Sustain
« on: December 02, 2015, 12:37:05 PM »
I was looking for a kit for Tubular Bells. The default userKit Chimes/Bells didn't sound quite how I would like to. Neither did 'Chime Bell' on LSB03 P 127

I found 'Tubular Bells' in the MalletKat KS Sound list on Pg. 8 MSB00 LSB32 P15
All Programs in that list (on that page) seems to be one off, so P14 gave me a nice Tubular Bell sound.

While not pressing down the sustain pedal, the sustain time is too long.
Never earlier experimented with 'Gate time' which according to the manual should take care of this.

I saw the setting on the kit I programmed the sound into, was set at VELOCITY. Changed that into the minimum 0.010 seconds, tried some other values too, but no effect.

Obviously I'm missing something.

Long story, short question: How to reduce sustain on that patch?

I asked the question by mail, and received this answer by Mario:

this sound has been set with a long release envelope by Kurzweil and can not modified as our gate time
effects the sustain, not the release
