Is there an insertion effect that will create sustain ?
« on: December 06, 2018, 03:41:27 PM »
Hi all,

I wonder if anybody knows of a way to apply sustain by using an insertion effect ??

Why I am asking?
Well there are two cases where I think I would use it

1) to add a specific amount of sustain to flute organ voices.
Currently the 'normal' sustain can be applied to those flute organ voices, but contrary to all other types of voices, it seems the amount of sustain cannot be specified for organ flutes. And the default amount is too much for my liking.
So if I could do it my means of an insertion effect, I would have control over the amount.

2) I sometimes use bass pedals to play bass voices. In that case I use voice 3 for the pedals.
Voices 1 (and 2) are for my right hand.
Now most of the time, I want some sustain on that bass (pedal) voice. While I sometimes want to be able to controll sustain on the right hand voices by using a sustain pedal
So I would apply normal sustain on those right hand voices and insertion effect sustain to the bass pedal voice 3

Thanks in advance!

You can Adjust the Sustain from the Voice Set.

It's panel sustain

I'm not sure about Pedal sustain levels.

So the problem is that on Organ Flutes, the Voice Set pages do not let you change the sustain amount. This is different from all the other panel voices.

I don't believe there is a sustain insertion effect.

The closest you'd get is using a reverb insertion effect, and carefully tweaking the effect parameters.


The data manual does suggest that MIDI control change 64 is the sustain level. If you have an external controller you could send a CC64 message and see if it affected Organ Flutes. Or as an experiment, record a MIDI file, add in CC64 message and see how it sounds.

I don't use pedal,that's why I prefer the "release" effect on voices so the sound will "die" slowly and not immediately.

Hi --

I agree with Panos. Try increasing (or decreasing) the Release parameter in Voice Set.

I sometimes use long release time as a substitute for reverb or as a way to smooth out the sound when playing legato (especially organ).

All the best -- pj

Hi,

MixMaster allow you to insert and/or manage sustain, value and release time for each track or voice.

Thanks everyone for responding !

I have experimented a bit with the 'release' setting, and it's definitely a big step in the right direction! So I think I will be using that!

Thanks again!
