I’m having trouble creating a crescendo effect on a particular chord in a piece I’m working on (I’ve never done single-note crescendos before).
I did a bit of research online and found this thread which explains exactly how one is supposed to accomplish this and even provided some great links to video explanations. But for some reason I’m not able to replicate the success.
I went through the videos and was able to use the pencil and/or draw a line in both controllers for cc11(expression) and cc7(volume), but none of that had any effect on the crescendo I was trying to make when I replay that section of notes! I went further and on the same editor selected the Velocity controller, edited around with the pencil and those actually work, but no audible effect happens when I do the same on either the cc11 or the cc7.
Does the fact that I’m using Cubase Elements 8 (not Artist or Pro) have anything to do with this?
Does Elements have some restrictions in this area? Why would Velocity work but not Volume (CC7)?
Thank you so much for your help guys! I appreciate it!
