I have these basic questions about expression maps that I couldn’t find straight forward answers to them in the help/online.
If I understand it correctly, Playing techniques are for engraving but they can be played back as well depending on the VSTi used and its programmability. Aren’t I correct?
When I hover over the expression Name an abbreviation of ‘expleg’ pops up.
2.1 Where is this coming from?
2.2 Is this what I need to add to my playing technique under String groups?
- How to connect/correspond Expression maps to Playing techniques so that it plays back as they appear in the score: Let’s says you have an expression ( Bass and Add-on Switches) as Expressive Legato under Expression library EW Solo violin.
how do you notate this in the score so that it is triggered?
Here is what I have tried so far: I go to the Playing techniques, add a new playing technique under Strings group, and name it “expr”. Then I Play>Edit Playing Techniques, I select the direction. But then, How this expr. mark on the score trigger the key switch C1?
- Is it possible to define your own playing technique group? Say, Ethnic Percussion, etc.?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
