CreativeSauce Cakewalk articulation maps vid

Recommended Posts

Very helpful video, I used it as a primer before starting to map a selection of NI instruments.

As for the 'Capo' pronunciation issue, according to Google Translate the answer is as follows...

English
Kay-po-h

Italian
Kap-oh (masculine)
Kap-pa (feminine)

Now all I need is a method of determining the gender of my Capo ?

I always love a good pun :) Thank you! Apparently the word derives from the Italian word 'capodastro' - but I don't speak Italian, so I'm not much help :)

Doesn't everything music have an Italian root! 😳

Articulation maps have inspired me to start using Kirk Hunter Concert Strings again. The sheer number (literally hundreds) of keyswitches in that library could turn a fun process into drudgery, especially when displaying multiple sections at once in the PRV. It'd end up looking like spaghetti, with viola switches intermingled with cello notes and bass keyswitches mixed up with violin notes.

BTW, I don't complain about Italian terminology. At least it's more or less phonetic. Musicologists could have settled on French or Russian instead!

Still doesn't explain why I have to order a plain old cup of drip coffee as if I was a tourist in Italy.

Well, since the neck goes into the capo, I assume the capo is feminine.
