Hi everyone, my sustain works fine during playing but on playback/recording the sound is 'strangled' and often staccato instead of the original smooth legato performance. Reading through I see I am not the only one> If anyone has a magic solution not yet listed , please tell  Thanks  Guy

Not sure if this is your issue but worth checking. If I forget to disable input quantize when recording a piano track, the resulting playback will horribly accentuate the deficiencies of my timing . With IQ  set to something like 1/32, the timing issues sound like  little weird glitches. IF IQ  is set to 1/4, the source of the prob is obvious.  Turning off IQ fixes it in a  hurry but of course the parts have to be rerecorded. I don't think IQ can be undone. I know now to always check for it, but the first few times I didnt realize what the cause was and trashed a few projects.

Good luck!
