Dear Friends, Very basic question: I use some old VSL sample .gig files with gplayer. I really like this libraries and the way it sounds. The combination patches alternate sounds via keyswitches in the lower range of keyboard (or the upper range in some instruments). Something like: C normal sound C# pizz D marcato etc Can I use this keyswitches in the OMN lingo, without having to send the midi note itself to activate the keyswitch, something like: (marcato e c4 d4 s legato fs4 g4 cs5 eb5 ) Opusmodus will send the keyswitches as a hidden midi note in the expression ? All the best, Julio
Dear Friends, In a previous post (link below) there is a great description on how to configure old vsl gig versions. There is a place where you can configure the relation between the OMN articulation command with the correspondent keyswitch. QUESTIONS: 1) Let´s say I invent a new articulation in a custom sample library, for example "nail-scrape" for indicating the violin player to scrape the string with his/her nail. In this case, I need this OMN expression to: a) apear in the score notation and b) change the corresponding keyswitch. 2) In the case of the OMN expression "long", I configured it to change to the crescendo/diminuendo long samples in VSL, but this does not appear in the notation. This is great, because I don´t need it to be specified in the notation, since the long note values are enough, I just need the keyswitch. So there is the two scenarios: 1) CASE 1: OMN change keyswitch AND appear on the score 1) CASE 1: OMN change keyswitch AND DO NOT appear on the score The articulation expression syntax is a kind of yellow/brown word in the OMN code. Only articulation related words appear as an assignable articulation for this kind of use. FINALLY, THE GREAT QUESTION: How can I create my CUSTOM articulation OMN expression, like the "nail-scrape" example, so that this articulation can be customized also as appearing or not appearing in the score ? This can be really useful for expanded techniques in special scores with special sample libraries or even with scores based on customized samples, or new instruments. All the best !
