negative delay per articulation in exp maps

Its a common situation to have instruments, especially strings, where some articulations have more attack latency then others. This often has to be handled by non-quantizing and nudging certain articulations earlier in order to sound ok.

A great addition to Expression maps would be the ability to add a “delay” parameter, which could be negative and would automatically send midi events early per that setting, to make up for articulation-by-articulation differences in attack latency.

Was just about to ask for the very same! I was hoping I had missed this one… but I guess it is not there yet - even in Cubase 11 :frowning:

Enthusiastic ditto.

This would change the way composers work with VST instruments. I really hate having a midi track for each articulation, but the delays in articulations are significant and if you want to stay on the grid, expression maps are pretty useless for most libraries.
