    Hi all,

    A question regarding CineStrings. Is it possible to make the Full Ensemble articulations patch respond to key velocity? I’m recording a fast Celtic style melody and it doesn’t sound quite natural to have every single note at the same velocity if that makes sense.

    Any tips on how to get around this?

    Thanks :)

    Load the patch, click Mapping , then click on the KS Vel Dyn Map tab to the left. Short Articulations will be key velocity sensitive and sustains will use CC1 (modwheel to control dynamics) but keyswitching is required. Alernatively , you can use the velocity map where pedal is set for sustains and key velocity triggers the short articulations and CC1 (modwheel) controls the dynamics of all articulations and no keyswitching is required. It's very customizeable. Or you setup your own mapping in custom map or adjust the maps that exist (if you do , i would save the patch as a different name and not overwrite the existing default).

    That's great, thanks for your help!

    Do you know if there's a way to make the marcato note length slightly longer?

    Not tom y knowledge but you can try staccato for bow attack overlay . it seems to extend the marcatos just a small bit longer.

    Gotcha, thanks. On another note - CineBrass - the trumpet ensemble articulation patch sounds a bit distant/echo-y out of the box to my ears. For this project I need it to sound a bit more close-up & puncy. Any ideas on how to achieve that?

    Turn up the close/spot mic, perhaps?
