This example is for Spitfire Solo Strings, but some of the approach may be applicable to other Spitfire libraries that support UACC.
Note that articulations use the middle C=C4 convention.
Load the instrument patches and then click the padlock icon on the bottom left and select ‘Locked to UACC’.
There are no dedicated shorts - use stacc: ‘This creates a sound that can be used either as a nice short staccatissimo, but also as part of a sequence of fast short notes’.
All articulations use velocity + CC1 for dynamics. The velocity and CC ranges are set to 30-127 to prevent ppp dynamics from being too quiet.
If you find that the dynamics feel too ‘jumpy’, try reducing the range of the CC1 dynamic to 60-127 or setting the dynamic curve to 1.5 or 2.
If the notes sound too detached then try increasing the Release very slightly (CC17)
