I’ve begun to create a couple of Expression maps and, looking at the generated “dorico” file, it turns out it is a plain xml.
For the libraries I’m working with (EW Holllywood Choir and EW Sounds of Empire)
the process is:
- create an “endpoint” with Opus
- load inside it all possible voices (Ah, Ah-legato, Ooo, etc…),
- assign to each of them a different keyswitch (C-2, C#-2, etc…)
- create an extension map
- for each voice/keyswitch defined in the endpoint, manually create an entry, matching the same keyswitch.
I’m a developer, and I realized that, if it would be possible to simply “read” the endpoint create at 2) (saved as vstpreset) points 4) and 5) could be done by a software, at least as “stub”.
So, is it possible (and eventually how) to “read” the “vstpreset” file to get information about the voice and the keyswitch associated to it ? I do not know almost nothing about VST and I’m sure the question may sound really noobish, anyway…
