How to avoid sample retriggering in mono-legato mode?
Sorry I can’t figure it out!
Usually, as long as you are playing legato (always having a note pressed in the keyboard), the first played sample should be transposed to the new frequency (even if you transpose it 3 octaves and sounds really awful). However, Halion 4 starts a new sample when you enter its zone. Is there any way to avoid this behavior?
the only time my sample starts again is when it has ended, but say I wanted to load a ten minute sample i could play legato up and down the keyboard with out retriggering, untill the ten minutes is over,
im sorry if im on the wrong track here, but just dont get retriggering in legato
sure our fantastic HALion 4 has this feature.
You will find this feature you are looking for in the Programm Voice management.
You can activate or deactivate the “retrigger” mode.
I have attached a screenshot with further information.
Yes I know HALion is capable of mono-legato playing, but it doesn’t work between sample zones. Please hear my attached file above. It clearly shows how you can play a mono-legato sound with glide, but as soon as you enter a new sample zone the new sample is triggered from the start, instead of transposing the old sample which is what it should do.
This means that, If you have for example a very detailed Moog patch with samples on every key, you will never be able to achieve mono-legato glide sounds, because the new samples will be triggered always, breaking the legato sound.
As long as you are playing legato, there should not be new sample trigger (even if you cross sample zones), only transpositions of the first sample played.
I’ve been waiting for this since I Bought HALion 3 many years ago
Glide works fine, but no matter what I do, the samples are still triggered from the start when I cross sample zones using legato. Maybe I’m not using the right words to explain it, sorry. I mentioned legato only because it makes the problem more apparent. Just try playing legato between 2 adjacent sample zones, and not.
Sorry Marcus but I’m still unable to avoid sample retriggering in legato mode when crossing sample zones, not even with Audiowarp.
I have attached a vstpreset containing a sound from my Slim Phatty. Try playing it legato, you’ll eventually notice what I’m talking about (I hope so!) because the attack part of the sound is long enough to notice. I would be more than happy if someone could bring this vstpreset back with legato working as I’m trying to. In any case, I hope you enjoy the preset.
Sorry to be so fussy about this matter, but I really love Halion 4 and I think these details are important for the “ultimate sampler”.
By the way, creating loops with the internal sample editor is a dream! I wish Wavelab was so good at this, but it’s not as immediate or easy. 10 points for this!
EDIT: seems that I’m not able to attach the file, so I’ve put it here:
