Note Names dialog box on the PRV [SOLVED]

Question

Can we make "Note Names" for some virtual instruments which have articulation key switches and add it to "Use these Note Names instead" drop down list in the Note Names dialog box at the PRV?
Need making .ins file to just realize it? or making drum maps instead is better?

HI:)

 

You have to make an ins file and name the note numbers like your keyswitches. I'll try to  explain the whole process:

 

1. Take an existing ins file and copy and rename it. 

In the ins file the note names should have the names of the articulations.

Delete all of the rest note numbers  or just let the numbers exist.

Save it. Important is the name and the instrument definition names.  (Just an example)

.Note Names

[Session Strings Pro]

0=Sustain

1=Staccato

.Instrument Definitions

[Session Strings Pro]
Control=Session Strings Pro
Patch[*]=1..128 
Key[*,*]=Session Strings Pro
 

2. In the midi track select the correct output and go to the PRV

3. Right click in the keyboard at the left and choose configure

4. Choose define and then import

5. Choose your saved file and open it

6. Click on your saved instrument definition name and then on OK

7. Close the next window

8. Now you can choose your file in the instrument list. Doesn' matter which Midi Port you use.

9. In the last opened window choose "use this note names" and search the list for your file.

10. Click on OK and your articulations should appear on the left side instead of the keyboard.

 

Sometimes it needs to open some windows twice to make CbB recognize your file.

 

Works for me!

Thank you for your reply!

The minimum configuration of .ins files that can be imported is .Note Names section?
Also needs containing .Instrument Definitions section? or all the other sections are required?

Hi😊

I have not tried out but Instrument Definitions are for sure necessary! It's perhaps enough to just Write the Note names section for articulations, but just try it out.....I'll do this tomorrow!

I did try it. In conclusion, ".Instrument Definitions" section is necessary. So the minimum configuration of .ins file for importing is ".Instrument Definitions" and ".Note Names" sections.

Now, I can add "Note Names" what I made to the drop down list in the Note Names dialog box!
Thank you so much!
