Just as the title suggests. Here’s a screenshot.
When I load a template it gives me the same thing.
You loaded the Noteperformer playback template and NP uses its own setttings. So stage template does not work with NP. This is by design.
If you open an expression map, you’ll see that in the top part of it (often not opened), there are options, one of them is to enable Spaces for the VSTi.
For NotePerformer it’s disabled because it handles its Space on its own (already coded inside the plugin, the instruments are placed in a reasonable way so the user doesn’t need to care about it)
Well that’s sad because it’s not. It sounds somewhat disproportioned sometimes. So basically stage temples are useless.
Well, I mean, it’s NotePerformer. Take it as it is : a fast and easy way to listen to the score. As soon as you want specific things, it’s probably not the right tool any more.
They are of more use for other libraries. You could of course check the box in Noteperformer’s Expression Map, so that you can position the instruments to your liking; but you’ll be fighting the built-in panning and depth more often than not.
Yeah, but I’m writing for chamber setting (String quartet) and its horribly distributed… So good to know that i can edit the Noteperformer settings for that. Is there an article to explain how to achieve this?
In the Expression Map Editor, select the Noteperformer map. Then click on “Expression Map Data” at the top. This will drop down a panel with a bunch of options, including “Apply Stage Template settings”.
Then the instruments assigned to NP will show in the Stage map.
I thought I already explained it on my first reply… I should have added a picture
Well technically you didn’t, what you did say was that it was disabled…
What i concluded is that there is no way in “Noteperformer” to edit it.
PS. No pictures needed just elaboration.
