Single Instruments No Longer Play Multiple Notes


When I first started using BBCSO Core, the trumpet patch (or any other single instrument) had the ability to play multiple notes at once, which was very handy if I wanted to play chords with a note for each trumpet.

Now, I can only play one note per patch. I recently made new articulation maps, so perhaps this has something to do with it?

    Hi @PJ - thanks for posting about this!

    It sounds like you may have the Legato articulations selected instead of the Long articulations. Legatos by design are monophonic, meaning you will only be able to play one note at a time, whereas Longs are polyphonic meaning you can play multiple notes at the same time.

  • @Sara thank you, this is very helpful!
