On my quest of creating an Orchestral Template I am wondering whether I should create Expression Maps for Virtual Instruments? I understand that if you use an Expression Map in Cubase you actually only have to load, for example, 1 Patch within Kontakt 5 and use key switches to use any Articulation assigned to the Key Switches. Thus saving of copious amounts of RAM as there is only one Patch in Kontakt Loaded. This makes sense as a good way of working but how, when printing off Scores (onto real Paper haha), does the Articulations get notated? And do all the keyswitch “Notes” show up on the score?
Although so much more RAM hungry (of which I have nearly used 16gb so will get some more) is it better to create a midi channel (assigned to Kontakt 5 Patch) for every Articulation as I am imagining it makes it easier for Printing Score? Expression Maps in Cubase seem like an amazing feature but I just need to get my head round working with them.
Thanks for any help. I am learning so much on this forum!
