Default Infinte Note Sustain Issue

Hello all,

I was looking to find a solution to an issue I'm having with Reaper.

Not all, but some of my sound libraries and soft synths have an issue with infinite note sustain. It's as if the release is set to maximum.

For example, I'm using a Spitfire Kontakt Library and the first notes in the MIDI clip are indefinitely audible - well past the end of the MIDI note.

I have Reset MIDI CC/Pitch on for playback start, stop, and loop/skip. I also have "Send all notes off too all MIDI outputs/plug-ins" bound to a key, but it's an issue when notes drag on across midi clips.

What could be happening here?

Thanks!

There are a few things to check
Do you have a sustain pedal?
If so check it wasn’t depressed when loading the instrument.
Another common thing I find is that a clip has a Sustain pedal CC ‘On’ but not ‘Off’

For this check your midi clip and you can draw a sustain CC off event (the CC lane for sustain is 64). I often do this, especially when recording continuous looped takes.

I do have a sustain pedal, but it was not used during this MIDI clip in question. I tried drawing a sustain CC off event (lane 64) and it unfortunately didn't do anything. I appreciate the response though!
