[sc-dev] Re: Event's sustain


this is a topic which has also been raised along this thread

Certainly your objection is right if considering the traditional meaning
of musical terms.

But this example also shows the difficulty of finding a general definition
to fit such:

The default synthdef (see Event.sc) has a fixed release time of 0.3,
so tempo accelaration leads to overlapping.
'Musical' legato/staccato depends on a number of params
of the Event/Pattern system.
Nearly impossible to find parameter relations garantueeing
traditional musical meaning for all SynthDefs ...

I'd explore the possiblities of customizing
the Event system by defining own Event types.
