Re: [sc-dev] Event's sustain

> Lastly, I think legato should *increase* as the rhythm gets faster -- the opposite of your suggestion. If, as a flutist, I see staccato quarter-notes at a moderate tempo, I'll play the note for, oh, I guess 20% of the beat's duration. Staccato 16th-notes at the same tempo are more likely to be 50-60% of the duration of the note's value, because there's a limit to how fast a human player can start and stop a single note. A staccato model that doesn't account for this will never sound realistic.

yes, nice one.
But I was talking legato's relation to tempo and not faster rhythm in terms of subdivision.

i do appreciate your comments though.
