Contemporary Strings Spicc - improved playability
Pop Low Strings - improved playability
Scene d'Amour Violas Legato - fixed bug
Pharaoh Strings - fixed bug
Improved Loops and legato transitions on multiple patches 
 
ADVANCED OPTIONS:
====================
 
Sustained Notes
--------------------
If switched on, all the played notes will be sustained even if you release the key(s) from your keyboard.
By default it's assigned to MIDI CC#64 (Sustain Pedal) on all sustain/legato patches that do not have a divisi section, but you can use the RMB to assign it to a different MIDI controller.
 
Niente
--------------------
If switched on this will increase the dynamic range of the instruments by fading out the volume to -oo dB.
 
KS Key Base
--------------------
Hold down the LMB and drag up or down to set the base key for the keyswitches (on patches where they are available).
 
Dynamics (only on sustain/legato patches)
--------------------
Click this button to start the MIDI learn function. The MIDI controller you choose will be used as a substitute for the MOD Wheel.
Please note that you can not detach the MOD Wheel from its original function, i.e. it will always control the dynamics along with the new controller.
 
Expression
--------------------
Click this button to start the MIDI learn function. The MIDI controller you choose will be used as a substitute for the Expression controller.
Please note that you cannot detach the Expression controller from its original function, i.e. it will always control the expression along with the new controller.
 
Attack (AHDSR)
--------------------
Set the AHDSR envelope's attack portion of the short and sustain samples (not the legato transitions).
 
Release (AHDSR)
--------------------
Set the AHDSR envelope's release portion of the short and release samples.
