  • New User... Detache ???

    Why does the detache patch (Orchestra Violins) not hold a note for as long as I want?  Do I have to combine this patch with another patch to get a lasting sustain?  Sorry for the dumb question...  It seems like when I combine this patch with the sustain patch there is an overly audible crossfade between patches....  Thanks


  • Strictly speaking Detache or 'detached' is only used in a (relatively) fast passage where you would want each note to have a change in bowing direction. Technically a violinist can only hold a note so long on one bowing, so to write a very long note as detache would be redundant anyway. Could you post the sheet music where you need detache instead of arco (sustain)?
