It is my understanding from the Cubase manual regarding Expression Maps, that the first sound slot becomes the default setting. Green arrows left and right of the currently selected expression in the Track Inspector confirm this.
And yet when I first start work on a project using VSL and VI Pro, VI Pro does not initially select the matrix slot pointed to by this default expression setting. My default expression always points to the standard Sustained patch in the matrix. Sustained is highlighted by the green arrows in the Track Inspector. But when I activate the track to audition it and play on my keyboard, whatever matrix slot was last used is the one that plays. If you check VI Pro there is no initialized connection between the selected articulation in Cubase and the selected matrix slot in VI Pro. Of course if I record a line, then I can go back into the Key Editor and make my articulation selections using the available expressions from the Expression Map.
Does anyone know of a way to initialize the default articulation so that it plays automatically when I activate a track for audition purposes using my keyboard?
