I’m trying to use the new endpoints feature with ARIA Player and Garritan GPO5 library.
Endpoints are great for setting up ‘standard’ groupings, like SATB+org, but as soon as the scoring varies from the configs that I’ve set up, I get another VST Instrument with a complete duplicate set of samples.
So, for instance, if I create a VST with choir, strings, 1 oboe, trumpet and organ, and then I have 2 oboes in my score, I get another complete ‘orchestra’.
I can mitigate this somewhat by creating lots of different endpoints within the playback template: SATB, SATB+org, SATB+org+strings, SATB+org+strings+woodwind; SSAATTBB.
What’s the best way to manage scoring variation? Does it matter (in terms of performance, memory, power, etc) if I have 16 VST Instruments each with one sample, rather than 1 VST with 16 samples?
