Halion Sonic and default default dynamic?

In my DAW, I have one instance of Halion set up with multiple instruments, all on the same midi channel and all set to staccato. It makes a nice, full sound. But I noticed that all the dynamics seem to be defaulted to “f” or higher for each instrument.

I made a copy of the track and changed all the playing styles to sustain, and those all have “ppp” for the default dynamic.

Q1: Is that normal, to have the default dynamic depend on the playing style?
Q2: Can I change the default dynamic in the sustain instruments? How?


This seems to be the case with only instrument. If I set to staccato and play my keyboard, the dynamic responds to the velocity of the keys, but with sustain, it stays at the lowest dynamic no matter what I do.
