Updated Olympus Elements expression map?

Hi everyone,

Is there an updated Olympus Elements expression map available? The one I have does not perform hairpins, so I can’t crescendo and decrescendo the voices. Thanks in advance.


Only hairpins? Not all dynamics?

What does each expression have for the Volume Dynamic settings in the map:


(NB: This is just a random map; I don’t know what Olympus uses, but I woudl have thought it is CC1.)

I just checked the expression map out, and strange enough, the volume dynamic is set to CC7. Isn’t this a mistake ? I thought we were not supposed to use CC7 (except for Volume), which is supposed to be the fader value in the mixer…
[Edit] Changing that setting to CC1 does not change anything.
If I add the secondary dynamic (to CC11) it does behave as expected.
Here’s the new expression map :

I’ve added the Stage thing. So far it seems to be working perfectly :person_shrugging: Maybe @John_Barron_2 would like to update the whole PB template? There’s one more thing to do to benefit from the Stage thing : modify the routing inside the Olympus Elements VSTi. Here, I have SATB routed to 1-4, and the outputs have to match, otherwise everything comes out of 1 (Soprano) and is on the left (if panned left to right)…

Why are there 12 instances loaded by default?
Here’s a new SATB playback template (with NP as a fallback VSTi) :

Let me know how it works for you (you might need to change the reverb, because I use Relab Development’s LX480 which is not included in Dorico)

Thank you very much, Marc, for the playback template. Yes, it seems to be working very well. Also, thanks for your input, Ben.
