I’m using EW Strings. The VST manager is Play. What I found is the keyswitches for that library don’t support all the articulations I want to use. Specifically pizzicato. In order to make pizz available I need to create a vst channel specific for pizz. I really don’t want to create additional tracks to support additional articulations. What I was hoping is I could use the expression mapping to switch channels. There’s no solution there that I can see. Any ideas on to manage changes of articulations outside of the keyswitches?
Yes you can do that. In the Output Mapping section there is a field for Channel. By default it is empty, which means it doesn’t mess with your Channel Number. But if you put a number in there it will switch any notes using that articulation to that Channel.
