    BIG issue with Vibrato effect on Legato Instruments

    Hey everyone, I'm encountering a very frustrating issue with Kontakt. I'm trying to emulate a subtle vibrato effect on a few Cinebrass Legato horns that don't have any sampled vib. So here's what I do: I check "edit all groups", create two LFOs (for tune and volume), set the frequency and...

    How do you make VSTs more expressive and realistic?

    I've been doing more midi programming of music lately and am applying some tricks I've learned. For example, 1. Overlapping midi notes to get the legato effect. (works in Kontakt libraries) 2. Varying velocities to mimic a real player. 3. Humanizing midi timing so it's not robotic. 4. Adding...

    Does anyone else think there could be a better Solution than Key switches ?

    Hey, Maybe I am in the minority here, but I find the more Keyswitches an orchestral patch has, the more it takes me out of the moment - requires more editting. I wish I was able to whizz over the Keyswitches as I play in parts, but at best I can usually learn 2 or 3 and end up doing the...

    LFO on Instrument Insert FX

    So, I have a couple of effects on the instrument InsertFX tab, and a filter after those. I would like to modulate the cutoff frequency with an LFO, but I can't seem to do that the same way as it would work on a Group InsertFX. I thought that I could set a "dummy filter" with an LFO in the Group...

    Assign ModWheel to a knob on my Nord Piano in Logic?

    Hi guys I need your help with this one: I have a Nord Piano 88 which doesn't have a modulation wheel nor a pitch bend. I do have other knobs which transmit MIDI signal to Logic, so I was wondering if there's any way to make one of them the default knob for controlling ModWheel in Logic...
