Hi

back again this time to remark about playback.. long notes are suddenly played staccato or short... sometimes when I stop playback and restart at a certain point, it sounds right again... but only for a while... rather wearing

arghh

You need to provide way more information for any meaningful comment to be made about this issue.

Ok,

well, I've got a string quartet with different movements (written on OV 4). On playback at the start for example half-notes (minims) sound like sixteenths... (especially violins and viola, not so much cello)

One way I have found to get round this is to give a pronounced click on a notes in the score, until a steady sound is produced. Then I can retart playback and it seems normal... until later in the score after a fast passage with stacatto notes, there is a contrasting section with long values... but they are played stacatto...

So I stop playback and start just at the slow movement, and then playback is relatively normal.

I set options at 'play as written'.

Do you think it's a problem with Ov5 or with Amadeus ?

By the way sound comes through windows direct, as realtek asio doesn't produce any sound with OV 5.


I hope that's clearer.

cheers

It sounds like the staccato marks are producing a keyswitch which triggers the Amadeus staccato patch, but it is not returning to normal legato after the staccato note has ended, as it should.

This problem has been posted about extensively by "TenorAlan". There is a bug where ASO will not end the staccato keyswitch after successive staccato notes. I don't believe it is anything you are doing wrong. The only fix is to possibly click on the last staccato note in the series of successive notes and set the At Note End to "sustains".
This doesn't seem to happen with a single staccato note, only multiples.

Indeed. And here's a link that shows a list of those discussions.

Thanks for summarizing Pete. That appears to be the current state of affairs.

In some cases, it will be less tedious to set all your articulations to give, At note end, the "normal" articulation key switch for the instrument of interest (in ASO, for many instruments, that would be key switch C1 - middle C = C4 basis).

It might seem that, when there are consecutive notes with articulation marks, for all but the last note in that series these would be redundant (although harmless). But they in fact will not be be sent except for the last note in the series.

Cheers,

Alan

I found it in 'articulations.... at note end I put C1 (sustain) .. then apply.

Seems to work , but I have to apply it in each case..

thanks again.. hope the bug is repaired soon :wink:

Do it in the Inspector Panel on the right and it's good for the whole piece.

If you change it before you apply any of the marks, or if you click on Apply after you change it (in which case it will be set that way for the existing marks of that kind).

Cheers,

Alan
