I tried creating a silent playback technique for pressing keys silently on piano or just moving the pedal on timpani but I can’t really get it to work.
I created a playing technique called pedal only, assigned a playback technique called silent which I want to use with other instruments as well and connected that to the expression map of the timpani. I set the velocity percent to 1 inside the expression map.
One thing I noticed is even if I assign the playing technique in wirte mode, inside the play window it doesn’t change.
How do I get it to work?
Can I add my own samples to the Halion Sampler? I just want a representation of those noisy sounds of brushing the skin of the timpani for example. I can’t add another sampler just for one extra articulation, right? One instrument uses one VST, correct?
