    Re: help in synching the piano roll
    Hi - It sounds like you'll want to experiment with legato playing and possibly tweaking the various Legato options the instrument provides. Many instruments implement legato response when the player plays overlapping notes, and if that's the case here that's how you'd achieve smoother note transitions -- play slightly overlapping notes when you want legato [smooth connected] notes, and separated notes otherwise. But a quick glance at the manual seems to suggest that there are several controls that affect the instrument's response to legato playing, so you may need to investigate and customize some of those settings to suit your own playing style. I can't be more specific, not having access to the instrument, but since Spitfire seems to have paid a lot of attention to legato-style playing options, you may have to do a little experimentation with the relevant controls to achieve the playing response you're looking for..

    Re: help in synching the piano roll
    I would assume if you were listening to the piano track while you played the cello, then the cello notes would be in time with the corresponding piano notes -- *unless* the cello sound has a very slow attack, which might make it hard [or impossible] to play the notes in time. If that were the case then there's two ways you could adjust the timing: - Turn off Snap to Grid [Edit menu] and you could drag the cello Region[s] by ear to match the piano timing - Open the Piano Roll Editor of the cello Region[s] and drag the individual notes [again by ear] to put them in time with the piano The other approach might be to reprogram the response of the cello [in the plugin] to respond more immediately -- but as you said you're looking into that..

    Hi - If all the notes in a Region are consistently out of time with the piano, then the first way would let you adjust them all at once. The seconds method is more flexible, you can adjust the timing of individual notes -- probably more useful in your situation..
