Okay this is the problem:
I want a swell effect for specified instruments (EastWest) but I am unable to achieve that under cubase using only one note.
for example pp < ff for one note (swell effect)
I can use velocities if there is more than one note but I don’t understand how to do it for one note.
This is what I read:
- CC#7 (not 17) and CC#11 are used to create swells
2.On most instruments there will be a difference in timbre at pp and at ff. If you need a big swell, the timbre will change and you should look at using a DXF patch (on a separate track) and a combination of CC#1 (which controls the cross-fade between the soft timbre and loude timbre patch) CC#7 and/or CC#11. This way, you are able to change the timbre of the instrument in relation to the volume that it being played.
But I don’t understand how to implement it.
- What exactly is a DXF patch? I don’t understand how that procedure works.
- And in terms of CC,does that refer to the 0-127 instrument?
- From beginning to end, can someone refer to me how to set this up.
Lets say I have a note that I want to create a swell effect one.
- Set up CC with mod wheel. (I don’t have one. Can I do it some other way? And even at that where do I do this configuration?)
- Set up DXF patch. (Is this a layer? Like Audio, or Midi? It’s not in there. Or is it a Midi and I just set it to a particular instrument and that is the DXF patch.)
- Create swell (How do I do this?)
