Topic: Trouble with wind controller decrescendi

    Unhappy Trouble with CC2 response

    Hi all,

    I just got a Yamaha WX5 to use with GPO, and I'm having a bit of trouble with it. If I play a note extremely forcefully and taper off the wind pressure, if the CC2 slider in the Kontakt player is set at 100%, I don't hear anything until I start tapering off; if the CC2 slider is set lower, the GPO instrument plays, but then it actually jumps up in volume before diminishing.

    If I crescendo up to full pressure, it sounds fine; it only happens on the way down.

    Here's an example using the flute (X-Custom Flute Solo KS) with the CC2 slider at 75%.

    If I examine the CC2 messages in the MIDI file, I don't see anything out of the ordinary: a CC2 with value 127 is generated immediately before the note, and then when the decrescendo begins, there aren't any jumps in the CC2 values; it goes smoothly downwards.

    [Edit]: It's not just a problem with the wind controller; I created an equivalent file directly in SONAR's piano roll, drawing the CC2 data in by hand. I then loaded the MIDI file into WinAmp, which I configured to play to GPO Studio. Again, I loaded the X-Custom Flute Solo KS into slot 1, set the slider to CC2 at 75%, and the same problem occurred. (It also happens with other sounds as well.)

    So it doesn't appear to be tied specifically to the use of a wind controller or to SONAR.

    Can anyone tell me how to work around this?

    Hmmm. Apparently editing the thread title (to make it more general, since it's not specifically tied to the wind controller as I first assumed) didn't work.
