Hello,

two questions 1) How can I have a key pressed down slowly without sound like on a real piano? Do I have to manipulate the velocity curve? Is there no „learn“ functionality like in other libraries and Pianoteq?

2) How do I get good, natural sounding sympathetic resonance? There is either none or strange sounding effects when I adjust the corresponding db values.

Hello stuenn, 

Thanks for your questions!

1) We still don't have a "silent key" yet. 

2) The algorithm that calculates the Sympathetic Resonance will hopefully be improved in the future. I agree it is not as good as it could be. 

Unfortunately I don't have a time-frame for this yet, but we have those requests on our list. 

Best, 
Paul

Glad to hear there's a possibility of "silent key" in the future, Paul!  Since that's "just" a matter of allowing something like a velocity of 1 to be trapped and not create a sound, seems to me that it would not have as sophisticated coding requirements as would creating a better sympathetic resonance algorithm.

I realize that at the moment your programmers must be pretty busy getting Vienna Assistant into shape, though...

Hi Jane, 

I have learned that, Lesson 1 in "understanding developers", everything is possible. And at start it also always looks easy :-)

Lesson 2: You always have a draft solution for the bugs of OTHER developers. "Just give me the source code and I can fix this in 10". 

Anyway, both lessons turned out to be true, but then there's lesson 3. Still don't know what it is. 

Thanks for your patience!

Best, 
Paul
