So not having used Cubase (or any DAW for that matter) for a very long time, I didn’t even know what expression maps were when I decided in favor of Artist instead of Pro. Kind of disappointed it isn’t available in Artist but that was my fault for not being informed. Anyway, having started my first project in Artist with some orchestral material in it, I’ve been able to successfully use key switching in miroslav philharmonik 2 in single (midi) tracks to change articulations.
However, there are some very good string patches in “studio strings” I’d like to use (I have Absolute 3 with H6 and HSonic3, etc.). But there doesn’t seem to be any “unused” keys in the “studio strings” patches I’ve been auditioning so I’m assuming key switching is absent in favor of expression maps which aren’t available in Artist.
Other than purchasing an upgrade to Pro (to acquire the expression mapping function), or creating separate tracks for the various articulations I’d like to use, is there any other work-around?
