I just spent days tediously creating and assigning expression maps (with some help from Art Conductor but a lot of them by hand), to some of my string libraries. Lots of tracks, and lots of separate Kontakt instrument articulations using a very detailed folder structure so I can stay organized when I want to import. Been doing it for a few days now and was excited to finally get expression maps assigned to all my libraries as part of a long-term project. My goal was to have a template sessions for various libraries, where I can then import things a la cart into whatever project I’m working on.
So I go now to import some of these tracks and none of the expression maps that I assigned to their respective tracks are importing into a new project. I do a bit of research and discover a thread on the Steinberg forums from over 2 yrs ago which says that if a track exists inside a folder, the expression map will not import into a new project? I didn’t want to believe it, but then I tried moving a few tracks outside of their nested folders to the root level in the project window, THEN importing, and low and behold it’s true.
I’m hoping that there’s some workaround for this. I mean, this is part exasperating and partially depressing, to have spent so much time only to discover that I can’t use any sort of folder structure to effectively create a template with expression maps??? Expression maps were one of the big reasons I moved over to Cubase.
I’m hoping there’s some workaround for this, and if anybody knows it I would be interested in hearing a solution. Is this something that is NOT a problem maybe in Neundo? I’m in Cubase 12 pro.
Thanks for any suggestions.
