  • They are text expressions you simply insert in your score where you want a keyswitch to occur.  All the dump programming info is already programmed into each text expression and the expressions themselves are hidden text so they won't print in your score.


  • I'm very new to VSL, and I can't figure it out how to read the matrices in the manual and let them work in Finale. For instance, if you want a snap pizzicato in your violin solo (SE1), the dump would be KS F#1 according to the matrix, right? But I do not understand the principle of the Rows (V1, V2, sometimes V3) and how to exactly choose the right KS that sets the articulation as mentioned in Row V2. You get my point?


  • Hello wlasoen and welcome to the forum!

    The Special Edition and Special Edition PLUS matrices have MIDI CC1 mapped by default for Y-Axis control. So you will have to add CC1 commands to your score to switch between rows. These commands are also included in the keyswitch dump file for Finale.

  • Hi

    I got finale to play back the key switches but it doesn't seem to be able to read the dynamic, expression and crescendo and decrescendo. I'm wondering how could I fix that? Also what are those CC1:000 stand for?

    Thank you


  • Hello Prong!

    In Finale you can set up which MIDI commands get sent to virtual instruments under Human Playback Preferences/Dynamics/Volume. Our instruments react to velocity and/or MIDI Control Changes according to your settings. If you use our instruments with Finale, I recommend the following settings in our instruments.
    Velocity X-Fade turned on and set to CC11. Expression set to None, CC12 or any other free CC that you don't use for other faders. Master Volume set to CC7. Then I would set "Dynamic Approach for Sustaining Instruments" in the aforementioned Finale menu to "Expression (CC#11) + Velocity". Please note that some earlier Finale versions had CC7 and CC11 mixed up.

    CC1:000 stands for Control Change 1, value 0.

    Best regards,
    Andi

  • I'm unable to find the VSL Keyswitch Dump library. It's not in the Finale27 Libraries folder anyway.


  • It's in the Additionals section of the VA, under Notation

    I'm sorry, I don't follow you. What is VA?
