In his clear guide on editing expression maps, Paul suggests to edit the endpoint configurations by section. Add the string section, edit the endpoint configuration, save. Repeat with the other sections. Add the separate endpoint configurations to the playback template.
I understand this method has the advantage of modularity. Do you want all VSL most classic strings? Select a playback template including the endpoint configuration for Orchestral Strings. Do you want to replace them with OT Berlin Strings? Select a playback template including the corresponding endpoint configuration.
What I wonder is what about the playing/playback techniques. Some of them may change for the different libraries. But some wouldn’t, and one would want to use them in every library.
Is there a way to reuse the playing/playback techniques in different endpoint configurations? Say I have created a “spiccato sempre” playing/playback technique for the VSL Orchestral Strings, and would like to reuse it for OT Berlin Strings. Would I have to create it again, or would I be able to reuse the one from the VSL library?
