How to create VSL sounds set library


Recommended Posts

There are two ways of creating a VSL sound set library.

The first one is with keyswitches - this is the default VSL setup.
The second one is to do your own Program Changes sound set to switch between Patches.

 In this example we use the 'VSL Prepared Piano' instrument.

 

First the keyswitches sound set:

(def-sound-set VSL-Prepared-Piano-KS
   :programs
  (:group Main
          chain                (:key c7  :key a0)
          double-screw         (:key cs7 :key a0)
          harmoinic            (:key d7  :key a0)
          harmoinic-secco      (:key ds7 :key a0)
          foil                 (:key e7  :key a0)
          glass                (:key f7  :key a0)
          stick                (:key fs7 :key a0)
          stick-roll           (:key g7  :key a0)
          glissandi            (:key gs7 :key a0)
   )
  
  :controllers
  (:group Default-Settings
          Pitch               0
          Velocity-XF         2
          Volume              7
          Pan                10
          Expression         11
          Reverb-Dry/Wet     14
          Reverb-On/Off      15
          Slot-XF            20
          Start-Scaler       21
          Master-Attack      22
          Master-Release     23
          Master-Filter      24
          Delay-Scaler       25
          Tuning-Scaler      26
          Humanize           27
          Velocity-XF-On-Off 28
          Rsamp-On-Off       29
          Dynamics-Scaler    30

          :group Pedal
          Ped                64
          Sost-Ped           66
          Una-Corda          67
          
          :group Matrix
          cc1                 1
          ))

 

Here is the Program Changes sound set:

(def-sound-set VSL-Prepared-Piano
   :programs
  (:group Main
          chain                (cc101 0)
          double-screw         (cc101 15)
          harmoinic            (cc101 29)
          harmoinic-secco      (cc101 43)
          foil                 (cc101 57)
          glass                (cc101 71)
          stick                (cc101 85)
          stick-roll           (cc101 99)
          glissandi            (cc101 113)
   )
  
  :controllers
  (:group Default-Settings
          Pitch               0
          Velocity-XF         2
          Volume              7
          Pan                10
          Expression         11
          Reverb-Dry/Wet     14
          Reverb-On/Off      15
          Slot-XF            20
          Start-Scaler       21
          Master-Attack      22
          Master-Release     23
          Master-Filter      24
          Delay-Scaler       25
          Tuning-Scaler      26
          Humanize           27
          Velocity-XF-On-Off 28
          Rsamp-On-Off       29
          Dynamics-Scaler    30


          :group Pedal
          Ped                64
          Sost-Ped           66
          Una-Corda          67
          
          :group Matrix
          cc101             101))

 

Please note that if you want to use the full range of the piano you will have to set the keyswitch range outside the range of the piano or set Program Changes to switch between Patches.

      short information about this from CT:
       
      "Currently, only the VST plugin does the pitch bend correctly, there was some reason why I did not fix the problem with the Max version, but I'll take it now.
      In the short term, you can also solve it by sending the pitchbend value immediately after each noteon.
      Pitchbend + - tritone."

      I was wondering what was the preferred method to store snippets? I come across quick ideas I want to quickly store away for future.
       
      There seems to be two choices..make a .opmo file or 'save the last file as .xml' under the File menu. Are there any others? I guess an xml file is good for seeing the notation rapidly but effectively renders the snippet dead as it loses the reference to the code and an .opmo file keeps the code... though this needs to be evaluated to see the notation quickly.
