DPro Instrument names -> descriptions

Is there somewhere that will tell me how to get the descriptions of the DPro instruments based on their names? I couldn't find anything in my manual or online at the site...

For example: "Grand Piano 3v 4th sim" or "Grand Piano 3v m3 rt sim"

I think I've got the "Grand Piano" part and the "3v" may be three octaves? but what is "4th sim" or "m3 rt sim"? Is there a "standard name encoding", or are these names only meaningful to the original sample programmers?

thanks,
k

    3v = three velocity layers
    4th = one sample every 4th (the lower the interval, the more samples in the set, so m3 (minor third) has more samples than 4th (fourth)).
    rt = release triggers enabled. Those are samples which trigger on note-off (hammer noise), and volume can be controlled by CC2.
    sim = simulator enabled.

    Thanks! I'll go digging in the manual and see if I can avoid asking questions about anything else...

    I _think_ I've got a (reasonable) understanding of everything you mentioned except "simulator enabled".

    I'm hoping that this might help. It's from the Project5 Wiki. It explains the Body/Damper simulator, and much more.

    Is this _really_ only on "note-off" messages ... or does it also occur when a "note-on velocity=0" message occurs? My understanding is that a _lot_ of MIDI interfaces don't send "real" note-off messages so as to utilize the running header...

    thanks,

    note on messages with velocity = 0 will behave identically as note-off messages.
