  • SY Player Speed-Control Interpretation

    I'm curious, with SY player speed control switching, how does it interpret the speed of incoming notes?

    I can see that it assigns parameter values to each note depending on length, but what criteria does it use to "decide" if a note is short or long?

    I tested an "auto-speed" folder in SY Elite Strings 1st Violins, which contained "legato" and "legato agile" articulations switched by speed control. I entered a series of whole notes followed by some eighth notes, back to whole notes, then sixteenth notes. The speed control values correctly differed with regard to each category of note, but on what basis did it decide which note was which?

    And all this brings up the question of how the tempo of a project change the interpretation of what ought to be considered long or short or shorter.

    Hi, 

    Speed is determined by the time between attacks. We cannot predict the future, but we can see how fast you play 😊

    Best,

    Thanks Paul.

    So we can assume that predicting future world events is in the pipeline for a future upgrade? 😉
