Got my Virus TI2. Got a Question About Mono Legato

  • I’ve had many workstations over the years that sounded great, but I’m excited to have finally acquired my first dedicated synth. I have one question that I couldn’t find in the manual. Is mono legato available or is it just mono retrigger? If I have a lead sound with a short attack and decay, with a low sustain in the filter envelope. But I hear legato notes retrigger the envelope and not glide smoothly at the filter sustain level. I’ve only had the board one day so I could be missing something. Thanks for any help you all can provide!
