I agree with LAJ that the mapping is wrong. I was going to contact support when I found this thread in the forum.
First I didn't understand what was wrong, the fast legato for the Synchron Solo Woodwinds just sounded very bad. This is the same for all solo instruments that I've tried this on, so I guess that all of them is affected.
After some investigation I found that this incorrect mapping just exists for the room mics, not the mid and close mics. And it's just affecting intervals smaller than a minor 3rd, i.e. minor and major 2nd intervals.
The problem is that wrong legato transition is used in those cases. Here is what's happening:
- If I play an upward major 2nd legato the downward major 2nd legato transition is used
- If I play an upward minor 2nd legato the downward minor 2nd legato transition is used
- If I play an downward major 2nd legato the upward major 2nd legato transition is used
- If I play an downward minor 2nd legato the upward minor 2nd legato transition is used
To reproduce this, just turn off the mid and close mics and just use any room mic(s) and play any 2nd interval repeated back and forth. Then you hear that the transitions going in the opposite direction. If you play it fast, like a trill, it will sound almost like a cluster because the right and wrong notes are sounding together.
Then I became curious as to whether this also applies to other Synchron libraries, so I tested this on Synchron Strings Pro (the agile legato), on Synchron Elite Strings and on Synchron Brass. Unfortunately it's the same problem 😬.
A screen recording example is attached and I will send this to the support as well... SynchronU0020LibrariesU0020wrongU0020fastU0020legatoU0020mapping-480.mov-1696493221315-effif.mov
