Changes and improvements in this update

  • Some improvements in the default mappings of percussion patches.
  • Tenuto patches no longer sound short; instead, the tenuto attack then crossfades with the regular sustained sound; using tenuto and staccato together will still provide a short note, however.
  • The default smart knob settings for the Mariachi Trumpet have been improved.
  • The velocity curve of the Oboe 1 patch has been improved so that it no longer sounds louder than other wind instruments when playing quietly.
  • Adjustments to the ranges of several patches, including strings, brass, Recorder 2 Alto Tenuto, Jazz Flute Vibrato, Harp Harmonics, Jazz Tenor Sax, Jazz Alto Sax Doit, Bassoon 1, Flute 1 Wholetone Trill, Tuba (to cover Tenor Horn and Baritone Horn ranges), Recorder (to cover Tenor, Bass, Great Bass and Contrabass Recorders).
  • The velocity curves of the Staccato and Marcato string patches have been balanced.
  • When played together, the jazz brass sounds no longer phase so noticeably.
  • Some improvements to the tuning of notes in the Marching Mellophone patch.
  • A low rumbling sound that could be heard when playing the vocal sounds during MIDI input has been eliminated.
  • New Contrabass Clarinet patch, created by extending the range of the existing Bass Clarinet patch.
  • Increased the volume of the Triangle patch.
  • Improved the volume response of the voice patches.
  • Improved the velocity response of the staccato sounds for solo violins and solo trumpets.
  • Balanced the staccato sounds for the Marching Euphoniums, Bass Tumpet, Trumpet, Clarinet 1, Oboe 1, and Piccolo patches.
