#83 B3: Percussions


Percussions only fire from silence. When other keys are pressed percussions will not fire. Looks like there is a condition out of place in the code...

    The emulator code was designed to replicate the original hammond, this was an electronic instrument and the percussive trigger was monophonic - it could only trigger from silence. I don't do a great job of emulating the recovery period on retrigger but the conditions in the code were intentional and surprising awkward to do with a polyphonic instrument. It is easily possiblle to make this polyphonic but then the whole playing style would be distinct.

    I am going to put this into a pending condition on rejected. There were models of the Hammond that included such conditions and even included them on each harmonic but that is not what was targeted here, the B3.

    As designed.
