I thought I’d try to transcribe some scores that I have lying around the place. Orchestral music. For this I’m going to use EWQL Symphonic Orchestra. I know a lot of people hate PLAY, but it’s what I have… and I’m assuming the techniques would be similar whatever I use, that has multiple articulations per instrument?
I’m having a bit of bother navigating my way around my template/how I’ve arranged tracks and I’m not sure it’s really the best way so I’m after some advice.
At present I have one instance of my PLAY vst per instrument in the orchestra. Then I have a number of midi tracks per instance, on each of which will be a different articulation for that instrument. That’s potentially lots of midi tracks, which is fine, but the navigating thereof is proving to be no fun at all.
I tried putting them in folders, so a folder for strings, which has a few instances of the VST in it, and each VST’s midi tracks but already I’m finding it a pain to scroll up and down. This is mainly because of the Automation lanes(?) for each VST… Is there a way to hide them?
Also - when I want to add a new midi track somewhere, is there a way to make it be added (from right click > add track > add midi track menu) to just below the currently selected track/folder? It’s always added right at the bottom and it’s annoying. Particularly when I’m trying to do Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis and everything is a string instrument!
Any tips would be most gratefully received!
