Request: Making more use of the Release Switch
« on: November 07, 2020, 03:04:39 PM »
Hi and welcome!

I am enjoying my new Prophet-10 very much. Thank you, Sequential team!

I noticed, that using the Release switch is right no good. But it could be even better.

Right now when you set the global parameter of the Release/Hold to release, all factories with the Release/Hold switch being stored as ON, the connected sustain pedal does nothing. I need to switch Release/Hold of first to use it.

How about a different way of handling this without the need of a new parameter or UI function.

When the global is set to release, these are the existing possible cases we got
1. Release/Hold OFF and sustain pedal not pressed: short default release
2. Release/Hold OFF and sustain pedal pressed: release times as set by the envelope release parameter
3. Release/Hold ON and sustain pedal not pressed: release times as set by the envelope release parameter

And a new, yet not used combination is my wish:
4. Release/Hold ON and sustain pedal pressed: as the release is used, the pressed sustain pedal will activate a hold

That way the programmed status of the Release/Hold is not changing the existing sounds.
But it will give a use to the sustain pedal when the sound is stored woth the Release/Hold switched on.
keep on turning these knobs
