  • Legato violins (or other strings) in VSL Special Edition

    Hello,

    Since two weeks I'm working with VSL (Special Edition). Now I want to play harmonics (more than 1 note) in legato mode and it seems I can only play 1 note (instead of more than 1) at the time. Do I need to extend my version, or am I making some beginner mistakes?

    Thanks!

    About Legato-Articulation: Take for example the note D. The Vienna Instrument contains from D to each note (+/- an octave) the legato crossing sample. When you are going to change from D to G the VI selects the corresponding legato sample (key-noise etc.) and playes it in the right moment. Think now you are the VI. Play the chord CEG and move then to FAC. It is impossible for the VI to decide from which note it should change to another in this case.

    So the VI can only play 1 note with legato samples even with the extend version. 

    Solution:

    Split up the voices and open for each voice a new VI. That's no problem because...

    Even if you load the same articulation more than one time it only needs the RAM space for one.

    I wish  a lot of success with your VSL-Library

  • No it's not the version, just a beginners mistake that most of us have made. With the legato patches (by virture of how it "connects" the notes, you can have only monophonic lines........
