Is it possible to setup key switches in note expression?
I’m currentley using Trilian and omnisphere and would like to be able to use the keyswiches with note expression. That way the articulation (or part/what ever) would follow the note.
I know that you can set up Note expression so that it will distribute each note to a differnt chanel in oder to allow you to use non vst3 multi timbral instruments with note expression, but I can’t find out a way to do this manually?
"Distibuting notes to different channels
If you do not have a vst 3 instument, but still want to use Note expression functions, proceed as follows…
Add a multi timbral-instrument, open its control panel and assign the same sound to differnt channels.
In the inspector for the corrisponding MIDI track, make sure the MIDI output pop up menu is set to any.
Enable the “MIDI as note expression” button and record or enter MIDI notes with expression as needed.
On the MIDI menu, open the Note expression sub menu and select “Distribute notes to MIDI channels”
This will distribute the MIDI notes to different channels starting fom channel 1.
Edit each note idependently without controller conflicts."
I’ve tried setting Live mode in trilain to respond to midi cc as key switches, but cant seem to get it working right. Perhaps if someone has had some sucsess with this they could give me some pointers
I’ve been using expression maps, but find them a bit unstable, not sure whether this is a bug with the vst though or if its a Cubase issue. plus if I move the timing of the midi after I’ve set the articulation I’ll need to adjust the timing of the aticulation acorrding to the the midi…
So to sum up, I’d like to be able to send a note to any midi channel manually, set-up key switches or sucsessfully get Trilian and cubase to respond to midi cc as key switches, all form note expression.
