Re-Trigger Sustained Note Instead of Holding It?
I'm using Ableton 9 and a MIDI-Keyboard with a sustain pedal for playing.
Let's say I play the note C twice while holding the pedal, once with a Velocity of 120 and once with 60.
While holding the pedal, the first played note will still hold and "overpower" the second one, since it's much louder.
My question is: Is it possible to "stop" the playback of first played note, when the second has been hit? I know I simply could release the sustain-pedal again, but I also want to know if there is a way to solve this with Ableton.
In the Refpage for Max ( https://docs.cycling74.com/max5/refpages/max-ref/sustain.html ) there is something that looks useful, the repeatmode:
repeatmode 0: (Historical way) Playing the same note multiple times will not retrigger the played note when the sustain pedal is pressed or after a sustain 1 message is received. This is the default state of the object.
repeatmode 1: (Re-trigger) Playing the same note multiple times will send a note off message and retrigger the played note no matter what its sustain state is. The sustain object will also keep track of the notes to stop when the sustain pedal is released or a sustain 0 message is received.
repeatmode 2: (Stop last) Playing the same note multiple times will cause the sustain object to keep a count of the number of times the note has been played, holding and sending the accumulated note off messages when the sustain pedal is released or a sustain 0 message is received.
I think mode "1" is the one I want, but I'm not sure. If necessary I could also try programming it with Max For Live.
