  • Articulation Questions

    Herb

    I have a few questions about VI articulations.

    1. Can you move from a legato articulation to a crescendo/diminuendo with the legato transition still happening between the two articulations? I am interested in this because I would like to use this at the end of phrases.

    2. I ask this question in an earlier thread but I didn't get a satisfactory answer so I will try again.. In what context should the following patches be used?

    (a) Vl_sus_Vib fA_auto. Attack automation.
    (b) Vl_perf-rep_bow-sl.

    3. If you turn on the release samples button on, do all the articulations then have release samples?

    Thanks for your help.

    Regards

    Hi Mirabile
    I've expanded my VI-TRICKS & TIPS - Tutorial with a possible solution for you. Even if it is not quite the correct answer you will be able to solve your problem, I'm sure.
    legato between two single notes?

  • I would crossfade (fast) using the cell-crossfade option between perf-leg and the dynamic patch, immediately after the intervallchange.

  • fA_auto
    here you get as startingnote an original attack, if you peform legato all following notes will have optimized (fast attacks)
    I think these articulations are most usefull for fast movements using tremolo patches.


    Each patch has an individual info display, for example:

    VelLay: 3 (number of velocities)
    RS: yes (release samples included)
    AB: no (AB switch option not included)

    so each patch which is labeled RS: yes is performing release samples when the "release samples button" is activated
