Man....everything is so perfect on the ATG in many ways, but it still hurts when it comes to attack compared to the plain analog guitar with the ATG off. There's a lot of loss there, specially when playing rather clean and soft.

Why don't you guys leave the very attack alone? then quickly fade into the note only after the AT system has recognized the note and stabilized itself?

It must be done all inside the software, the non tuned signal and the AT'd signal of each string have to be blend with short crossfades for this to happen. Problem is, a very short crossfade can also cause non zero glitches in the digital stream specially on low notes....but maybe the fades can have different lengths per string.

I bet right now the AT software is trying to make head and tails with the very first attack transient, which is never at the note pitch (is some weird harmonic or pick sound) and it occurs so fast that the system is like.....huh??? It stabilizes real quick but the "pluck" is affected.

I took this from the manual and described it in the waveform graph:
