I just pulled the trigger on the addictive keys studio pack and had a quick question for any of you using this vst. It appears the only way to use the sustain pedal is with an actual sustain pedal attached to my midi controller. Is that really the case? I was hoping there would be some way to just set the sustain somewhere without a pedal and just play. I'm not a piano player by any means, so was hoping to set the sustain/release the same way that i would with NN-XT and reason pianos.

does that make sense?

You can use an automation track for this for example.

1. Display the Automation Track
2. Click on the parameter box and select Add/Remove... from the menu
3. Find the Sustain Pedal parameter in the list of available controllers and click the << Add button.
4. Edit the automation data
5. If you want to control the sustain pedal parameter with a button on your MIDI controller you can assign it via control link as I did in the image.




It's also possible to add the sustain pedal parameter directly to an Instrument Part in the Mudic Editor.
To do so, open an Instrument Part in the Music Editor and right click on one of the existing parameters like Velocity or After Touch for instance. Select Add... from the menu and add the sustain pedal parameter.

Sunmachine, you rock!

Thank you.

Btw, how does AK play with S1 on your end? Not very stable over here... I think it's due time i upgrade my system.

You're welcome! Glad it works for you!

When you say it's not very stable, does this mean Studio One crashes when you're using AK?

No crashes. It seems to be heavy on cpu, plus i get a lot of spikes... That being said, i just picked up the arturia v-collection 3 and am seeing spikes with some of their instruments as well. I feel like a lot of it has to do with my system. not terribly ideal for audio production.

One more question though.. I can't seem to get the sustain to show up in the control link window as you did. did you just click on the sustain pedal in AK to get that to show up? or did you click on the automation lane somewhere? neither seem to work for me.

Try setting the parameter box to Display Off and then to Sustain Pedal again.
When you have more than one parameter in the list, you can simply switch between them without selecting Display Off first.
