Please forgive my noobness…
I simply want to make a vibrato note within Cubase Key or Score Editor using a classical guitar Steinberg VST intrument. (I don’t have any external interfaces nor want to do anything in production stage… as yet)
So far I can successfully use expression maps in Halion Symphonic orchestra(HSO) by importing key switches, inserting a few notes via key editor or score editor, and then using bottom left drop down I can pick articulations and dynamics to then make a note tremolo, pizzacato etc depending what “key switch” HSO instrument provides within a instrument expression map.
But unfortunately HSO doesnt provide a guitar ? So within Cubase PRO 9 Halion Sonic SE 2.0.2 there are a number of guitars which I again can import key switches (those marked VX, e.g Nylon Vx) and can “expression” successfully. But unfortunately the articulations provided that I can see are mute, slap, hammer, slide and harmonics - but no vibrato.
So as vibrato is surely a common guitar technique and there is for example a con vibrato articulation in the expression map setup list then I thought could ADD another sound slot (con vibrato) but this didn’t appear to work on any of the Sonic SE Vx guitar instruments. I also created my own expression map for the Sonic SE GM 025 nylon guitar and added the sounds slots, articulations, output mapping and directions as per https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=253&t=123263&p=669709&hilit=output+mapping#p669709 and other posts but again failure (no change to any sound). And discovered that Hammer articulation and others in the Nylon VX doesn’t exist in the normal expression map set up list?
The creating expression map section of the user guide doesn’t make it clear to me, but Hesca116 appears to confirm in https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=250&t=125004 that you are stuck with whatever the VST instruments are giving in terms of articulation key switches?
I have also tried using midi editor to within the length of one original note simply create multiple notes of alternating pitch
to make a sort of tremelo effect but not ideal. Previously I’ve tried fiddling with pitchbend based on a forum idea(now lost) but again very limited results here so far.
So could anyone confirm to me :
Is it actually possible to create “new” articulations other than those in Vx instruments and present them to say GM 025, or similarly change/add articulations in the nylon VX. If so back to the drawing board…
Is there any Classical guitar in any other Steinberg product which does provides a vibrato articulation
Does the the Straight nylon sound in Halion 6 contain a vibrato articulation? (Chris hein doesn’t appear to btw)
Is the Nylon Vx in Sonic SE any different than the Halion 6 straight nylon
Thanks very much
