Ah, I didn't see the start switch until I clicked a Sound ID and then the interface "appeared'.
Still... I'm not getting any joy with the cymbals reading articulation text changes! Can I send you a score perhaps? I've now no idea what's wrong with this and need to get this working fast. Having started a test score from scratch I have managed to ascertain that the Cymbals A-D Soundset IS triggering damped and roll articulations but any other articulations regarding beater type (i.e. soft, mallet) is having no effect. This seems fine with the other cymbals.
"Velocity X-Fade wouldn't make much sense for the cymbals" - Actually I think pre-rerecorded articulations have only limited use. I have an entire section of a piece where a tam-tam tremolo increases and decreases in volume very slowly and at different rates. I think that whilst (of course) a prerecorded roll may sound better it is not really of much use unless the music just happens to require that gesture at that length... I am for instance sure that a marimba crescendo sounds better prerecorded but of course I can use the Velocity X-Fade in that scenario. What differentiates the cymbals from a marimba? (Most composers I know find these prerecorded gestures to be actually strangely annoying!)
Is there a way for me to reconfigure the cymbals SoundSet so that CC11 controls velocity x-fade?
