In the library I use (Spiftire - SSO), I prefer to use Legato patches (rather than Long) as Natural switch. So both slurred and natural notes would get the legato playback.
Therefore, in the expression map I set the Natural switch to trigger Legato patch. In addition to that, I set its length to 105% ( this note overlap being important to trigger correct legato playback).
However, Legato switch has an important behavior : while all notes inside a slur have a 105% length, the last one does not. This is really important because if the last note was set to 105%, it would sometimes prevent next articulation from playing-back !
How can I set my Natural switch so that last note in a natural group has 95% length, as in the Legato switch ?
Perheaps there are more straightforward ways to achieve this.
Meanwhile, the following workarounds are too cumbersome to be used :
- Use slur whenever I want legato playback. Not usable because score would be filled with slurs.
- Reduce manually last note of natural groups to 95%. Too cumbersome.
Anyone confronted to the same problem (@MiloDC) ? How did you solve this ?
