While I've been giving my vibe playback some level of control and realism over the years, this series of posts opened my eyes to a whole new world of vibraphone detail that I've been missing out on (using the [b]Vibraphone (PED)[/b] instrument). I knew some of this had to be possible, but I've been too lazy to dig it up and spend the time on it, I suppose. But if you're serious about your playback realism, whether in a notation program or a DAW, make sure you read this topic. Jim has even included a couple helpful video demos in there.
That's all. Just wanted to express my excitement for this new realization and make sure others were aware of this helpful information.

Glad you're getting into this, Brian. It's definitely an underused, but super-powerful feature of the VDL vibraphones. It's what I use for anything I'm mocking up where pedaling/realism are important.
