441K SusNote Reference Guide

April 10, 2017

Learn how to use 441K’s SusNote MIDI FX Script.


SusNote is a MIDI FX Script for MainStage 3. It can be used to trigger and/or hold a MIDI note with a sustain pedal.

Installation

To install the SusNote MIDI FX Script, click on 441KSusNote.pkg and follow the on-screen instructions. SusNote will be installed to /Library/Application Support/Logic/Plug-In Settings/Scripter/441K.

If you encounter an “unidentified developer” message during installation, please follow the instructions here to perform an override.

After installation, SusNote can be found in the 441K folder in MainStage 3’s Scripter MIDI FX plugin.

Usage

There are two variations of SusNote – SusNote-U and SusNote-L.

SusNote-U (Unlatched)

The unlatched version of SusNote requires the sustain pedal to be held for the duration of the note.

  • Pitch refers to the MIDI note you want to trigger.
  • Note Velocity refers to the note velocity you want to trigger.

SusNote-L (Latched)

The latched version of SusNote does not require the sustain pedal to be held for the duration of the note. Instead, a predefined tempo and note duration can be set. Please be advised SusNote-L will not respond to sustain pedal movement after the initial activation trigger.

  • Pitch refers to the MIDI note you want to trigger.
  • Note Velocity refers to the note velocity you want to trigger.
  • Tempo and Duration let you set the amount of time the note will be sustained before a note off message is sent.

Misc

To play chords with SusNote, use an instance of Chord Trigger after the SusNote MIDI FX Script.
