This just in:
Yes... the plug-in needs to support it. VSL Synchron Player was the first VST instrument to support PreSonus Sound Variations. No. 2 is East West Opus. And hopefully, more developers will follow...not playing ball with Spitfire libraries. I wonder if this is limited to certain devs at the moment?
Not yet but VSL already mentioned that this is planned for the future.So... would it be possible to do this via VE Pro? Most of my libraries are on slave machines.
HALion Sonic (VST3) only supports the IKeyswitchController interface (which is a VST3 feature), not Sound Variations. Studio One supports both. For the user, it looks (almost) identical but technically they're two different things.Edit -- although Studio One just picks up the sound variations straight out of the plugin, with no need to sync -- I tried this with Halion Sonic and it just failed to read them, stating that the plugin 'doesn't support this feature'!, which is clearly not the case as Steinberg devised the original VST spec.

Yes, the Steve Steele video assumes I know more about Articulation Maps than I do. As a DP user I've only watched the AM fun from the sidelines until DP11 and several of the terms and concepts in the video were unfamiliar to me. The DP manual isn't much help in this regard. It barely gives an overview of how to use AMs. And has no mention, I don't think, that only VST3 instruments have the extra capability the SS video is demonstrating...is it now recommended that we enable and use the VST3 versions of instruments in DP? If so that's that's quite a switch.This looks amazing but as someone who has never used articulation maps & never gets that deep in midi-land. I’m a bit intimidated with the complexity of all of this and really don’t understand what all of this actually brings to the table.
This looks quite powerful assuming if I can get my head around it.
