Volume grows when playing Strings

Unread post by DIAMANTE » Wed Dec 19, 2018 12:28 am

Very new to this MODX7 and all help is appreciated. I set Strings in a Performance. When I play the strings, they get louder and louder. I would like to play the strings and not have them grow louder. Can't find that control. Help?

Thanks

It sounds to me like maybe you're playing your strings parts with the sustain pedal depressed...?

No pedal used but I'm still working on a solution. Stay tuned...

Is there a way to set String parts to fade gradually even WITH the sustain pedal pressed? I've played with some settings but it seems to want to keep those strings going forever over and over on top of each other... I can release the sustain at points before it becomes too overpowering but I was just curious if there was a setting to automate it differently....

Nevermind! I found this to eliminate sustain from the strings: viewtopic.php?f=186&t=11851
