    Hello Orion,

    Unfortunately there's only support for regular sustain pedal in Kontakt.

    Jeremy @ NI,

    When you say that there's "only support for regular sustain pedal", do you mean that half-pedaling does not work, even though Kontakt 6 in Grandeur has the option?
    I am using a Kurzweil PC88mx with Yamaha FC4 pedals. I would like to 1) half-pedal and 2) sostenuto.

    @Jeremy :
    I have seen in another post that half-pedaling works with the expression jack and not the sustain one.
    So, kinda same question as Sam Boswell here but for the A-Series :

    Will a half-pedaling pedal work (as a non-'hpp' of course) trough the sustain jack, for regular sustain, or are those totally incompatible ? 

    Thanks

    Thank you all for the feedback!

    Currently, this thread has two aspects - features of the software and questions about pedal use in relation to a certain keyboard model.

    1) About software features: In general, in most cases, only features are available that are explicitly mentioned in the corresponding manuals.

    So if you can use special playing techniques (Una Corda or Sostenuto) with these pianos, these features should have been listed in the manual.

    2) About pedal use: It depends on which keyboard model you are using. Currently, for instance, the A-Series only works with sustain pedals. The MK1 models work with sustain and expression pedals.

    If you have more questions about this issue, please do not hesitate to contact once again via this post.

    Matthias, you mentioned the A-series and the MK1 models. What of the S-series?

    Thank you for the feedback!

    @Sam Boswell:

    Which S-Series model do you have and how would you like to use it? Which pedal are you using?

    None, but I have had my eye on the S88.
    BTW, sorry for the late reply.
