Sustain doesn't Fade Out

Postby Necross » 10:31, 26 January 2017


I'm relative new with the Roland Juno DS 61. I have a problem with the Sustain. With my previous keyboard it was possible to "fade out" the sound with pressing the sustain. When I press the sustain with the Juno-DS only the piano-sounds are fading out. All Strings, Synth, Vocal ... are getting "hold" by the sustain. I tried all Settings in Menu-System->Pedal but it just wont work.

How can I fade out (release) all the sounds?

Best regards

I would like to know how to fix this as well - I want my organs, etc to hold and fade like the pianos do when I press the foot pedal.

Anyone know how to make that happen?

never seen on any synth or keyboard a fade out-hold for organs... don't think that this is doable.

Is this because you have a reversed polarity on your sustain pedal?

Some sustain pedals has polarity switch at the bottom. Otherwise, you need to get the right polarity for the right keyboard.

It's down to the way the patch is programmed, isn't it? If I'm not mistaken, organs in 'real life' (non-synthesized) don't typically fade on sustain. They hold until the player releases the pedal.

You can download the free Di Editor software from Roland and modify the patch parameters to create a fade, then save and use your custom patch. It's a little complicated but if you're interested let me know and I'll start you on the path...
