Device Details


Name | Version: Sustainer 1.0
Author: SimonR
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: Increase the control of your sustain pedal.

Internal : Manage the note sustain inside the device, which will hold all Note Off messages until the pedal is released. Tip : use this in front of an arpeggiator or any MIDI device to play chords larger than 10 notes or for more keyboard-playing versatility.

CC64 : Bypass or gate CC64 messages.

Auto : In this mode, the "pedal" is automatically lifted and pressed down again on the first note of a new chord (in other words, the first note after no keys were pressed down). Useful when you don't have any pedal and don't want to manually manage the sustain.

Double-Press Latch : If turned on, double-pressing the sustain pedal will latch all currently held down notes on keyboard. You can then play all other notes as usual with the sustain pedal. Double-pressing the pedal with no held down notes flushes all notes. Tip : useful for creating drone notes on-the-fly.

Map button : Map any controller to this button to act as a sustain pedal. You can also click on it.

Kill button : Kill all hung notes.

Breath : When turned on, pressing the sustain pedal will hold the current breath/wind controller’s CC value as a floor/minimum value until the pedal is released, letting you catch your breath!

The default patch did the job perfectly for enabling my sustain pedal input for a plugin that didn't natively support it. Thanks!
Ahh, perfect for my needs. Thanks for creating it!

Cheers, Reyn.
