Playback of articulations

Recommended Posts

It would be useful for playback, if certain articulations would affect the sounding note durations and velocity values. With some articulations this already seems to be the case (e.g., stacc seems to reduce note durations by 50%), while other articulations are ignored during playback in that regard (e.g., leg is notated, but makes seemingly no difference in playback -- notes played legato are not overlapping, as would be expected, nor are non-legato notes very slightly separated). Other articulations are seemingly even wrongly set (e.g., marc is an accent, but it instead shortens the note).

 

Here is a little example demonstrating the problem, which results in the attached MIDI file.

EDIT: The upload failed, but you can easily listening to this or export it to MIDI yourself.

 

'((e c4 leg d4 e4 leg f4) (q g4 marc -q -h))

 

Can users somewhere set/correct these playback settings?

 

BTW: Ideally settings would allow for code (functions) evaluationed on the fly. That would allow, e.g., to add custom humanisation, e.g., to slightly vary the length of staccato articuations, or the velocity values set by non-legato notes.... 

 

Thanks!

 

Best,

Torsten
