: I notice that the sustain pedal doesn't sustain piano notes for long. Is there a way to rectify it.
: Please give a a step by step procedure.

The piano sustain will be determined by 4 parameters:
Amp sustain level
Amp sustain decay
Filter sustain level
Filter sustain decay
You may have to set these for all 4 voices (depending on the patch) plus they may be modified both in the envelope sections and by the modulation matrix (for example I use the mod-matrix to make the decay scale right from low notes to high)

I can't really get into how to program all this but if you grab my piano bank I bet you'll get something that plays well for most styles. I tried to match the sustain on some of the patches to a real Boesendorfer.
