Do sustain in Bounce Metronome by postponing note offs
Let Bounce Metronome handle the sustain pedal by postponing note offs...
This temporarily ignores any note offs for notes that should be sustained. When you release the pedal, all these ignored note offs then get played so releasing the sustained notes.
The way Bounce Metronome does this means that you can only have one copy of any note in play at once. Usually synths will let you play the same note many times with sustain, so you can build up many copies of the same note sounding simultaneously.
If you don't want repeated sustains, the Bounce Metronome sustain may be quite useful, also useful if you need sustain for a particular synth which doesn't have it implemented.
This option may also be useful for the pitch bend option to only bend notes held down in sustained chords, which is best without repeated sustained notes. For that option see the Pitch bend Options (Ctrl + 156) window.
Bounce Metronome can handle sostenuto in a similar fashion by postponing note offs - for that option see Midi In Pedals and Miscellaneous (Ctrl + 207).
Do Sostenuto in Bounce Metronome
Let Bounce Metronome handle the sostenuto pedal by postponing note offs...
The sostenuto pedal sustains any notes that are actually held down at the moment the pedal is pressed. The sustain pedal will also sustain any new notes added after the pedal is pressed, but sostenuto treats those normally withoutu sustain.
Bounce Metronome can handle sostenuto simply by keeping track of which notes were in play when the pedal is pressed, and postponing the note offs for those notes until the pedal is released.
The idea of sostenuto is that you can play a chord, press the pedal to sustain it via sostenuto - then continue to play with both hands, and later release the chord just by releasing the pedal - so lets you hold down a single chord for a while without the need to physically keep the keys held down all the time.
Included because some users find it useful as it is - more programming needed to finish it...
If you want to give it a go - most likely to work well with Bounce Metronome set to send, i.e. as the master and the other program set to receive, i.e. as the slave.
Also you must use the Play Sound button to play the rhythm. If you play just the bouncing balls on their own then no midi sync messages get sent.
This window is work in progress - some of the options and the way they work may get changed in future updates of Bounce Metronome
