  • Making polyphonic instruments monophonic

    Hello all,

     I was hoping someone could help me out a bit. I've got a bunch of the download instruments... flute 1, oboe etc etc...

    I'm trying to set up a patch in VI so that I can crossfade vibrato and non-vibrato samples for as many instruments as I can. I love the perf-legato patches, they're great... and I need the 'next best thing' for the non-vib patches (which don't have the interval samples)

    I was wondering if there was a way I could tweak VI to play back a patch in a monophonic mode?

    I've tried playing with the secret polyphony box, but this doesn't get the results I need, as it's more of a technical function. What I'm ideally after is a patch similar to the 'attack automation' patches I can find in some of my DVD instrument collections. Is there any way I can make a patch that behaves like this (or can VSL help me out)?

    All I'm after is a legato patch, that can crossfade between vib and nonvib samples on things like flute and oboe. So, a perf-legato patch for vibrato and simulated legato patch for non vib

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hello David, and welcome [:)],

    the best idea is to use Cell Xfade to switch between vibrato and non vibrato patches, if I understood your request right...

    Please check out our Video Tutorial on "Stacking and Layering patches".

    We have not implemented a "monophonic button", not sure how it could help in this situation, really.

    Hope this helps!
