Adding New Playing Techniques

I am writing for guitar and want to create a new playing technique, “crunch”, which will send MIDI CC#51 to the VSTi.

I can’t find any reference to creating new playing techniques, only using the built-in ones.

Is it possible to either create a “crunch” playing technique that will appear in the PT palette and send CC#51:127 or insert a CC#51:127 directly into the guitar part?


I think the only option is to find an existing PT that is unrelated, but working/recognized (sul tasto? Con sord?

  • trial and error may be required…) and configure that in an appropriate expression map to send the CC data required…

Thanks! Good solution!
