View Full Version : Do you feel that Stradivari has a very aggresive attack?

Hi all,

After a few hours playing my new and amazing Stradivari. I found that It has a quite agressive attack when you play it. If you press the keyboard very very low it doesn´t happend but with medium playing it starts too agressive for me. It only happens when you are playing isolated notes (not a legato passage).

Do you feel the same? or am I doing wrong anything?

Also, when I playing "legating" one note to other.. I heard like "noise" in the violin sound. Do you heard the same?

Thanks all ;)

Does it happen even with high cc#11 values? Please note that the attack volume is linked to note-on velocity, while the sustain volume only depends on cc#11.

If the expression pedal is either missing, or set to very low value, you will hear a strong attack followed by a pp sustain. This may explain why you felt the attacks as too aggressive.
