Breath Damper Pedal Script


This script (the content of which is printed below) is used to configure Sampler 1 in the Tau and Alpha setups to use the breath signal for the damper pedal as well as the pedal 1 signal. Note that as of EigenD 1.3.28 and 1.4.4, the factory setups of both Tau and Alpha have both pedal 1 and breath pipe by default connected to piano sustain.

It also creates an additional shaper agent that's put in between so that the compression ratio of the signal can be tweaked to be able to fine-tune the amount of breath needed to use the damper.

The script is attached as a text file. For more information on using Belcanto Scripts in the Factory Setups please see Belcanto Scripts
