Instrument Sustain Pedal

Can the instruments volume envelopes sustain be made to actually be connected to the midi sustain pedal, and not to the key release? I want to “play the piano” with samples, so to speak, and need the sustain pedal to function correctly.

this is currently not possible, but expect it to be possible in future releases

That would be awesome.

Is there some workaround? Possibly using the mda envelope vst, then needing a velocity device controlled by the sustain pedal (which is not possible?)

at the moment there is no workaround since standard Renoise instruments (not MIDI or VST) have no dynamic properties, so they cannot be automated or bound to exoternal (usually MIDI) events/parameters.

as said above, this will change in the future
