    I've made a new articulation manager to export hundreds of maps at once, for multiple DAWs. Studio One Cubase (currently requires the latest version of Excel) Reaper (beta) Most map settings are auto-filled w/ defaults, so an articulation & note number is as complicated as it gets for a...

    NI Stradivari Violin Articulations Playthrough & Reverb Comparison

    There's been a lot of debate around this violin on the web and most of the feedback was not so great.

    Layring different articulations

    How do you layer different articuations? Recently I´ve been noticing that some tracks have all parts of strings section (1st, 2nd violins etc etc...) playing the spiccato but at the same time they are playing the long patches. Maybe I´m wrong and just can´t hear it properly, but I´ll attach to...

    Dorico Mapper

    Here's a mapper I made. I hope it helps others stay sane. It requires MS Excel on a PC (not the web version) to run a Macro. The macro will export several maps at once. Let me know if it helps you! Dorico Mapper -Sean

    Logic Pro X - my Spitfire UACC all articulations plist (link to dl)

    Hi there, These past weeks (months?) I've been working on building my own template. I relies quite heavily on Spitfire Audio products and UACC keyswitching. Since I could not find a comprehensive UACC plist file to import all articulations, I made my own. I share it here, for what it's worth...

    Middle Eastern Strings & Articulations

    Do any of the libraries from Spitfire, Orchestral Tools, VSL, ProjectSam etc have any middle eastern flavour, and articulations typically used in this kind of music, in their libraries? Any suggestions where to look for these kind of articulations and to create that middle eastern sound?

    Logic Pro X summing stack and articulation map?

    I'm trying to put more than one instance of VI Pro (dimension string desks in this case) in a summing stack in order to drive them with the same MIDI/score track. They have identically arranged matrices and control mappings, so are designed to work with the same articulation map. The summing...

    Articulation maps vs. template balancing

    In my new template (almost done!) I am heavily leveraging Logic Pro X 10.4’s new articulation maps feature, along with ARTzID v2, in order to have a (slightly) more concise template where parts aren’t spread across as many tracks, and also to make a far larger set of instruments and...

    Edit articulation sets in Logic - reacting slower and slower!

    Have you noticed that the articulation settings window is getting slower when you edit the Articulation settings? The system is FAR from snappy and it's not my set-up, but it just gets slower and slower. I think anybody with a programming ambition, could make a fortune creating a really SMART...

    How can Logic become better at controlling CCs (and articulations)?

    Control of dynamics (and vibrato etc etc) and articulation is a big thing for people who use virtual instruments, and is very cumbersome in Logic. For starters, I often can't just enable record and enable automation touch mode and start to play some MIDI notes on my keyboard and control dynamics...
