I'm setting up a scoring template with VEPro and I use the cinematic studio series libraries. The way I would like to work, and I've tested this, is to split my expression maps into longs & shorts.
For instance, the long flutes 2 patch would contain legato, long, flutter, trills etc and the...
Because of a request...
DP version 11 delivers exciting new features like Nanosampler 2.0, Retrospective Audio Record, Articulation Maps and MPE Support, plus dozens of workflow enhancements requested by DP users.
Expression maps...!!! Count me in...!!!
I wrote a little web application for creating expressionmaps for Cubase more easily with some useful features which in my opinion are missing in the Cubase expressionmap editor:
In the video below you can see a little walkthrough of me creating an...
i'm trying to understand when to use directions or attributes. Maybe mixing them would give the best results.
Simplified: say i have a string library with some long and some short (or finite) articulations. I could create two main directions (long and short) and then have all sub...
I'm currently setting up my template and have run into weird, buggy behavior with an expression map that uses multiple articulation groups. It's for orchestral string runs and has:
-root key key switches in group 1
-Mode (maj, min etc) ks in group 2
-figure (what pattern to play) ks in group 3...
The notation editor supports other fonts now. It's now in the league of Noteworthy composer, MusicTime Deluxe, and others who support multiple fonts. I didn't expect Dorico level, but Studio One added the full Notion editor. It's lightyears ahead of the Reaper/Cubase 90's era...
I've made a new articulation manager to export hundreds of maps at once, for multiple DAWs.
Cubase (currently requires the latest version of Excel)
Most map settings are auto-filled w/ defaults, so an articulation & note number is as complicated as it gets for a...
I'm trying expression maps with Cinematic Studio String but have hit a snag.
I've made the expression map, but have come across a snag when trying out in Cubase.
With the legato articulation, when you activate the legato articulation for a second time, in the instrument it switches the legato...
as you might know, you can get Spitfire's BBCSO Discover library for free when you go to their website and fill in a survey.
I think it's a really nice effort and decided that I'll put together a free version of Art Conductor for Logic and Cubase to go along with it. All the details...
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!
I'm intending on updating my already huge orchestral template with some new addition. At the moment I use single articulations on individual instrument tracks with lots of disabling.
FYI my System Specs are: Win 10 --- Cubase 8.0.4--- ASUS x99 A-II --- i7...
Last year I started to build my orchestral template because I had so much sample libraries but I felt I had lost the control.
After one year of work and development I have finally released FLOW.
It offers a ready to use integration between
Vienna Ensemble Pro 6
I've been experimenting with expression maps and trying to decide if they'll fit my workflow. One thing I've run into that I'm hoping someone has a solution for - When I split a region, the articulation doesn't get split as well. So, every cut requires adding that articulation back to...

I spent the last couple of weeks creating my first orchestral template having in mind the following drivers:
I want all the instruments ready for recording
I have only 32 Gb of Ram
I want to be able to scale complexity and focus on specific tracks
I want to access easily VST...
Going out to any Cubase / VEPro users who might be willing to help!
I've nearly finished building a massive single track per instrument template with a ton of Expression maps. All the instruments are disabled in Vienna Ensemble Pro by default and I'd like to set up automation of channel...
Hi, all the Expression Maps on my website are now available in Articulation Type Direction and Attribute. I did a video comparing the two of them based on workflow.
Here is the video:
If you like to download them again, now you have both options.
ps: Albion One...
Anyone using Dorico here?
I would like to setup a big orchestral template to be able to compose using the following chain:
Dorico [for notation & expression maps] -> Cubase 9 [for synths, audio, mixing & mastering] -> Vienna Ensemble Pro [for sounds] -> Kontakt -> samples
I use to...
Long time lurker, first time poster here.
I've really hit a brick wall here, and would greatly appreciate any help.
I've searched and read all about potential similar issues, but have come up shorthanded, despite learning a lot of new things along the way. So..please bear with me.
Hello everyone ! Cubase's Expressions maps are great but it's really time consuming to do them... It's really a pity that we are all loosing time to make the same stuff..
So here's a page where you can find some:
you have some standard...
maybe I'm overseeing something but does anyone know
an easy method how delete all articulations (when using Expression Maps)
of a midi part n Cubase // Nuendo?
Did not find a key command or a way to do this with the project or midi logical editor.
Thanks for any advice on this!
I do apologize if this post doesn't fit here. I didn`t know where to post it.
I changed a couple of Expression Maps articulation type to Direction because i think that the easier and faster way to work with the VST Expressions. I also did a video showing the differences. You can watch it here...
Has anyone figured a working solution for Cubase Expression Maps and CSS?
The articulation switching works flawlessly with the MidiCC58 system, but when it comes to leg/non leg and Sord/non Sord (which is also set up wiuth CC58) I can't get it working in expression maps. I tried to set it up in...
Okay, I haven't used expression maps for quite a while now but I've spent the last few days creating a ton for my new template. I am wanting to test whether or not I prefer working with them or not. With that said, I am extremely pissed off at the fact that I spent the last two days creating...
Hi guys, I'm working on my template for Cubase and I just finished all the expressions map for Spitfire Symphonic Orchestra ...
As it was a lot of time to do it and it's stupid that everybody loose time doing his I thought I should share it ... so here it is...
Cubase has had Expression Maps for many years.
Reaper is getting something similar now:
I hope Logic will get something similar as well.
Meanwhile - how does the existing 3rd part solutions work/compare in Logic.... anyone?
Hi, I'm in the process of making expression maps for my libraries and I'm having trouble setting them up. I want one track that has kontact and an expression map that houses all available articulations for that instrument. A lot of my libraries come with multi patches but also the individual...
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...
Anyone have any working Cubase Expression Maps for Embertone instruments that they would like to share? I'm trying to set them up for a new template, but the manual doesn't define all the keyswitches options shows in the UI. I'm of the belief that if the UI has a control, the manual should...
There is something I really can't explain when I'm working with expression maps.
1) I create an Instrument track, load a patch and record some MIDI with my keyboard and/or mouse.
2) I load the corresponding Expression Map and start ajusting my Keyswitches.
3) As soon...
