Default Gypsy Violin Articulation Question

Hi - I am trying to understand why the articulations listed for Gypsy Violin include 2 different articulations for the same key switch note name:

Here are two examples of that, taken from the documentation:

C 0 Sus VB
C 0 Sus VB Leg
C#0 Sus VB 2
C#0 Sus VB 2 Leg

How is this controlled, for either of these two pairings?

Thanks, for anyone who knows,

A confused Bob Bone

Hi Bob,

C0 triggers Sus Leg, but it shows up as two articulations so you can adjust the volume of the legato transitions individually if you feel the need to. Sus VB and Sus VB Leg aren't different playing styles, but a separation of one playing style into two sets of samples for your convenience. Legato transitions too subtle? Dial the second C0 entry up. Legato transitions too strong? Dial it down.

Hope that helps!

Default Gypsy Violin Articulation Question

So - if I understood your response correctly, they have 2 choices for articulation C0 - and I am to 'dial up' one or the other, as needed.

Since they are both assigned to the same single Key Switch note name of C0, how would I actually select one versus the other?

I may have explained it in a confusing manner, I apologise.

It's one articulation consisting of two sets of samples. The Gypsy violin has true legato, meaning that actual legato transitions (the player going from one note to another) were sampled in addition to individual notes.

Let's say you play a short phrase consisting of two notes, C4 and E4. What happens "under the hood" is:

C4 Sustain gets triggered -> Legato sample C4 to E4 gets triggered -> E4 Sustain gets triggered.

The two entries in the articulation chart are the sustain notes and the legato notes. You can adjust the volume of the legato transitions in relation to the sustains. There is no need to switch from Sustain to Legato; both sample sets play when playing legato passages. Using the dial next to the articulation name, you can choose how loud the legato transitions are.
