Hi Peter/Ski pleasure to speak to you and thanks for getting back. Its such a good video haven't seen all of it yet, the part about midi channel messages cleared up a whole for me. Very important video = VIV!
[quote=Ski]To your second question...
Three tracks, each assigned to its own instrument, each hosting a different plugin, where:
- track 1 = alto (Kontakt)
- track 2 = tenor (EXS-24)
- track 3 = bari (WIVI)
With this approach you have:
- each instrument's region can have its own independent staff style as well as settings for the realtime parameters (transpose, velocity, etc.)
In the example above, you have the alto, tenor and bari on three separate tracks. Is it possible to set the score editor up to compose with just the three tracks/staves on one page and not include other tracks? I tried doing this though what happens is that every other track appears in the score editor as well.
Your video gave me a couple of ideas, though these are ideas where I don't know the destination, where I was trying things out.
I noticed in hyper draw you can select midi channels within a region. Say I play two notes, an A and an E as quarter notes for two bars in one region. In the event list I then select all the Es and put them on midi channel 2 while the As stay on midi channel 1. The track inspector is set to midi channel: all.
I select midi channel 2 in hyper draw and draw some region based pan automation. In the event list the pan is midi channel 2 along with the E notes. The pan affects the whole region as is evident from the sound and the pan knob. What I'm not sure about is selecting midi channels with hyperdraw, as whatever happens it affects the whole region.
Another thing I did was load up a multi-output of Omnisphere on just the one track which was set to all channels. Play in a basic chord sequence, then select individual notes in the event list, change their midi channel which then assigned them to different instruments in Omnisphere's mixer itself. Then create auxes in the mixer and arrange page. Kind of keeping everything within the single region.
Normally I use Omnisphere multi-timbrally and arrange everything where an instrument has its own track in the arrange page. Unlike in the above example.
Many Thanks again
