I am struggling to perform what I believe is a rather simple task (Cubase Pro):
I have built an orchestral template made of a couple hundred tracks linked with VEP to a slave. Each midi track controls an instrument articulation over several VEP/Kontakt Instances. All good (very good actually).
For whatever reason, Kontakt in VEP randomly loads instruments with Kontakt volume set at -6 db (despite the option being set at 0 in Kontakt). This happens randomly, but what causes is that each time I load up the template I basically have to spend time in going through each articulation in VEP to set back Kontakt volume to 0 db. (I usually find this out as the mix is messed up).
Until I don’t figure out why Kontakt is doing this, I thought about having midi cc volume automation set to 127 on each midi track in Cubase: setting 127 in midi volume automation in cubase sets the Kontakt volume instance in VEP to 0 db, which is correct.
Now, ho do i:
- batch process all of my current tracks, which do not have midi volume automation, to kind of “activate” volume automation and set it to 127?
- is there anyway I can set cubase to automatically do it for each future midi track I create?
I guess the solution lies in the logical editor, but I haven’t managed to figure out how to proper build a script for this: I can get the logical editor to edit volume automation only if I have already written volume automation for a track (by the way, I can only multiply/divide, but not “set” to a specific value: is this normal?)
Is there any way I can avoid to manually go track by track and insert a volume automation lane set at 127?
