In the demo video, moonlight sonata sounds slightly off because the phrase notes aren't playing sustained, just to give you a concrete example.

Sure, a setting for the phrase to actually choose whether the phrase should hold playing, or basically respect your sustain tilt state and sustain the notes instead of holding playing (while the notes only play un-sustained). I could see some users wanting to retain the tilt control for sustain mid phrase, understanding that with the phrase configured that way they have to be holding the phrase key to keep it playing. Or even allow another setting so the phrase would always hold, firing the whole thing while the performer is still free to play other notes and freely control sustain in a way that does make the phrase's notes sustain.

For my purposes, I'd love simply to be able to toggle for individual notes prgrammed into the sequence to be sustained the same way that we can choose individual volume. Speaking of volume, the  velocity/decay envelope is really what we are talking about with the personality of the sustain function for hammer on string instrument.

in composing with piano studio, i've always loved the sustain sound while playing fast, improvisationally.

right now i'm working on building some pattern based song segments, and the issue i'm seeing, is that when doing this, the volume decay isn't at the same rate of the struck key sustain function. what we're getting is hold when you draw the notes longer. it gets too muddy in my pattern where i have a lot of notes, in an allegro style.

I want the volume to decay as in strike - sustain. there's no ability to set that in the pattern.. i think per pattern it could be a setting, essentially. or, just a button you push while the note is selected, enabling sustain on that note.

this app has absolutely zero competition, i spent some time searching to see if anything has been made to offer piano playing/sequencing, and the closest i found was the apple garage band which can only be run on the ipad. i don't take ipad out of the house. piano studio seems it will always be the best, and honestly this functionality i'm describing is probably the only complaint i've ever been able to find with it.

i haven't worked in piano studio for around 18 months, too much, due to a break from composing for other interests.

it came back to me (in the shower, as most problem solutions typically do) what i did the last time i programmed a pattern which i needed to sound sustained in the notes.

you just set the notes where you want them, craft the rhythm it should have, then come back to each note and drag its length out to the maximum.

last time i did this, it was with a pattern of relatively few notes, just a backbone i was improvising over...

the issue i'm seeing, is that when doing this, the volume decay isn't at the same rate of the struck key sustain function. what we're getting is hold. it gets too muddy in my pattern where i have a lot of notes, in an allegro style.

i'm going to repost to the suggestion side. this app has absolutely zero competition, i spent some time searching to see if anything has been made to offer piano playing/sequencing, and the closest i found was the apple garage band which can only be run on the ipad. i don't take ipad out of the house. piano studio seems it will always be the best, and honestly this functionality i'm describing is probably the only complaint i've ever been able to find with it.

I'm pretty sure I'm just missing it in the documentation.

I need notes in my patterns to play sustained. I don't want to have to run pattern with inert notes through some kind of reverb to get it to sound like that.. i need need the 5-8 running notes to ring out sustained. The sustain in the app is causing the pattern to just remain running.
