: I have been told that the QSR can do sampled release, where a release sample is triggered at the point of key release. I believe this is done in Program mix mode with sound 1 containing the Attack and sustain loop sample and sound 2 containing the separate release sample. I can't see how this works, how is the second sample triggered? How is it matched into the Sound 1 sample? Does the QSR do some sort of crossfade between the two? how is it set up? Can't find anything in the manuals.

I'm not exactly sure how the sampled release would work-- as I've never tried it, I'm not sure if the results are good, but check out the harpsichord sounds on the QS. The ones where when you release the key, you hear another 'click' sound. My guess is that within a single program, there are two voices that come into effect (or more, if you want a layered sound): one for the regular, note-down sample, and one for the release sample. And I think under the amp envelope, or maybe filter envelope setting, there's an option under the delay setting where if you go all the way to the highest value (above 99), it says 'hold' or something. You use the hold setting for the voice that is the sampled release. I may be wrong, i dont have the keyboard with me right now, but I think that that is how to get it done. I know there's a harpsichord sound that has it, and in think there's a string sound called 'ReleaseStrings' or something like it that also has the same effect. It may take quite a bit of tweaking to get it to sound good, i.e. get the attack and release samples not to interfere, and to get the right effect you want. I hope this helps.
