So here’s a really strange and annoying one and I’m sure I’m not the first person to experience this: In Halion 4 (standalone or VST), if I hold a note(s) or if I press the sustain pedal, the number of voices being used (and the CPU usage) remains the same EVEN if the sound is long gone. So for example, if I select a piano, a guitar, a percussive instrument or any other instrument that has a relatively short sustain and play a 4 notes chord with the sustain pedal pressed (or just holding those 4 notes with my hand on the keyboard), Halion will show that 4 voices are used (or more, depending on the layer structure) and the CPU is at let’s say 25%. Nothing strange so far. The problem is that the number of used voices and the CPU usage remains the same AS LONG as i keep holding the notes (or keep the pedal pressed) even if that instrument had a sustain/decay of only several seconds.
The second part of the story is that other plug-ins don’t have this problem. Dimension Pro, Miroslav Philarmonik, Hypersonic and Plex behave as expected: when the sound of the instrument has reached its end, the number of voices being used and the CPU usage goes to zero even if the sustain pedal (or the note on the keyboard) is still pressed.
I would appreciate some help very much.
