   Hello!!
   Groove 3 has a new series of tutorials "The Orchestral Toolkit" wherin the VSL Standard Library playing  is one of the libraries being used to demo how to record Mozarts "Eine Klein--" in a DAW.
   In these tutorials the teacher(s) make constant references to the VSL Legato samples as being Velocity triggered.
   They are not talking about using "Velocity" in VSL as an assigned controller function.
   For the demo recordings they use 2  VSL articulation patches from the Standard library, Sustain & Staccato, which are accessed through Key Switches while Velocity X Fades are controlled from off of the Mod Wheel.
And on the screen you can see you can clearly view their controller setup as they record the piece.

   Is this statement, legato samples as being Velocity triggered, accurate?

  
   I have always thought that the Legato samples were accomplished with overlapping ends, ie Dietz's "the millions of computer edits that make up a good midi orchestral piece".

   Is, or can, "Velocity" input be the source for triggering the VSL Legato patches?
   And if so, is there a setup for this within Instruments Pro 2?

Hi Garr, 

I guess that is a misunderstanding - I´d ask the guys at Groove 3 directly, to be honest. If you can see that their setup is stac-sus, then there is no legato involved, although it is of course POSSIBLE to let "Velocity" be the controller for switching between articulations (in this case instead of keyswitches). 

In such a case, your played velocity on the keyboard would trigger the different articulations, while Velocity Xfade would take care of the "heard" velocity changes. Actually a nice idea to play with. 

Best, 
Paul

Thanks Paul. I use Velocity as a controller, and I meant to write Perf-Leg instead of "sus". However I think you've confirmed what I thought about being able to play "Legato" lines (ie trigger the samples) with velocity "pressure",

not the Velocity controller.

Thanks for the response.
