My goal is to create a simple and elegant way to switch to different initial articulations in Spitfire Symphonic Strings using their UACC (triggered by cc32). I have an Expression Map made for this, and it works fine. But you can’t select an articulation (like an initial articulation) from the track Inspector, which is something I wish you could do in Cubase. You can see what the articulation is, but can’t simply change it right there unless you use remote control for the Expression Map, or pencil it into your track.
So, I thought I would make a MIDI Device Panel and do one of the following:
Make a grid of small buttons that would send out the appropriate cc32 values to make the switches in SFSS
Edit the patch list in the Device Panel to send out cc32 values that correspond with the SFSS articulations
The issue I run into is that I can’t select my MIDI destination (VE Pro playing the SF instrument in Kontakt) for the MIDI Device Panel. Conversely, I can’t open that MIDI Device Panel within the VE Pro track that plays SFSS. So - I have a Device Panel, I have a destination that isn’t a true external MIDI instrument, but can’t get the two to work with each other.
Can anyone think of a way I can do this? I know you can create a Device Panel for a VSTi, but you are limited to certain parameters in the VSTi. I just want a simple Device Panel that I can access within different tracks. Seems like that should be easy.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have.
