Thank you for this free update, VSL!
I like the new patches and now with the editing of the existing ones, there should be enough options and variation for everyone to choose from and get the desired results.
@basses: IMO these were never the problem, so the update pretty much does it as far as the legato issues go. I also don't think that a "cantabile" playing style for basses is particularly high on anyone's list of priorities 😃
If I was to pick one more thing as a future improvement, I would suggest re-doing be the sforzato/fortepiano patches. Especially the sforzato in its current state really doesn't sound very musical. I believe the normal "short" articulation was used to crossfade into a long note to create these, and the result sounds quite artificial and jarring. The attack is too short and percussive, so when the sustained portion of the patch comes in, it's very obvious and disconnected and you can tell that you're hearing two sounds which do not belong together at all. A "true sforzato/true fortepiano" note would be much better, or at least a more realistic sounding attack recording crossfading into a long note.
