  1. It has taken me 7 months to achieve a smattering of ignorance about EASTWEST (Hollywood Strings) and their Play engine. Everything that has been said here is true. I used youtube, EW support, CbB forum and anything else I could find. Finally ended up tripping into some solutions. Willard
  2. Jerry, Very nice. I enjoyed the finale's energy and dynamics. Willard
  3. Hey all, Still struggling with EastWest strings. I've got the articulation map configuration - thanks to scook and Steve Harder and the many others who asked questions in the new articulation section. However, there DOES NOT seem to be a forum on or about EASTWEST that matches the quality of this forum. Support is spartan as I fumble thru the NET. Specifically, it is my inability to get the Play engine to recognize any CC 1 modulation data. My work flow is to create a midi file; build articulations, phrasing etc, pass thru my 5 instances of the Play engine and bounce to tracks. Questions and/or comments appreciated! Willard
  4. Steve, I don't have OPUS but have Hollywood Strings (cheap version). All of my articulation maps now work with the exception of the bass. I chose to use C2 as the starting point. I've tried both moving the entire starting point for each map from C2 both up and down. However, there appears to be something that triggers the Bass map even if I have only one articulation. For ex - I have the bass set to legato but it plays stac marc MOD. I even tried using only the keyswitch set and that didn't work either. I noticed you did state there was a possibility of some articulations interferring with the bass. One shows the Articulations I chose Two shows the upper four instruments and the chosen articulations three shows my effort to put the bassi in a different starting position All the channels are sequential as you can see in One Any help appreciated. Willard
  5. Noel, I developed a workflow that uses the tempo track in the multidock. I currently have the following in my multidock - console, markers, tempo, PVR. I can't get the tempo view in the selection area. See float 2 png
  6. I find the new tempo track less suited to my needs. It interrupts my work flow. Is there any way to remove that part of the programming? OR, is there a way to incorporate the old AND the new view? OR - - - do I have to accept it as the new gospel and re-adjust my attitude? Willard
  7. I have the latest update. I clicked out of it after I read it. I can't find it now. How can I get the the current release notes up again? I am up to date with the 2021.04 update 2.
  8. I have three: main is Dell 24 in; right is 22 in HANNspree HDMI left a Sceptre 22" Main moniter is track view; right is used for PVR and various settings ie: Staff view, tempo etc; left shows VST and effect plug-ins. All connected to USB expansion devices. Three may be overkill, but it works quite well for me. The left monitor is attached to a monitor swivel which I can use to read PDF files etc by swinging it over my keyboard which is perpendicular to the workstation.
  9. My needs are much simpler than mixing. I am still trying to understand some of the more basic midi to audio, using EastWest and Kontakt. Additionally, how to use the basic midi learn, articulation maps. I feel that I can use GPO5, but having great distress w/Sinokinetic "Toccata" organ and EastWest strings. I'm not, at this point, too concerned about mixing. If this is not of interest to you, cam you point me in the right direction. Willard
  10. Vernon, I appreciate your effort to explain my conundrum. My limited knowledge of midi is my hangup. How do I implement a CC change. I only have a simple Alesis Q49 controller and an old Yamaha kybrd. For me at least, the q49 MANUAL isn't of much help to understand implementation, plus only pitch, mod wheel as usable switches
  11. Sonokinetic's 'Toccata' organ VST has a great short coming in that there is no way to clear organ stops once they are activated. Is it possible to set an already existing CC via the articulation map, if so which one? Their support suggested a CC message, but I've no idea where to begin. Willard
  12. I have a similar problem with an organ program. Would there be a way to a CC message or develop one in an undefined cc message ie 14, or 15?
  13. Does anyone use this organ VST? Unfortunate for me, but there is no tutorial and the manual is entirely unhelpful for me. OTOH, it is a nice sounding VST, but I can't understand how to get the most out of the interface, Willard
  14. Scook, Thanks "It may be found by clicking in the plug-in UI followed by the F1 key." This is what I was looking for. I've not used SI and didn't know about the "F1" key.
  15. Friends, I've been searching for a tutorial to help understand the implementation of the SI Bass Guitar. Is there a folder that contains those grids? Specifically, how do I get the pattern grid into my project? I like the NiceBass using either or both Pop or walking in the Jazz blues section. Any help appreciated
