I’m trying to use IK Multimedia’s Miroslav Philharmonik 2 VST with Cubase expression maps. The articulations in the VST instrument are switched using keyswitches. So I put together a map for one of the instruments (Viola) and I’m trying it on a MIDI track that switches between various articulations.
The problem I’m having is that the the articulations are not switching on time. For example, if I have 2 staccato notes followed by 2 tremolo notes, I’m hearing 3 staccato notes followed by 1 tremolo note. Basically, the tremolo keyswitch arrives too late to switch the sound.
Without using expression maps, the solution is simple, just put the keyswitch note slightly ahead of the real note in the piano roll. But I want to use expression map because it’s so much more convenient. Did anybody run into a similar issue with any keyswitched instruments? Is there a setting that I’m missing that forces the keyswitch note from expression map to be sent slightly ahead?
