    How to do a velocity crossfade?

    I am new to giga. I just loaded my Advanced Orchestra Winds, akai version into giga, and I would like to be able to set up a velocity crossfade between loud and soft samples of of the same instrument on the same channel. Could someone please tell me how this is done?

    Hi Roberto
    Welcome to the world of Gigastudio.

    To make a velocity crossfade is quite easy.
    ( I assume that it is indeed a xfade and not
    just velocity layers ).

    Follow this procedure in the Giga Edit:

    1. In the instrument list, mark the 2 instruments
    you wan\'t to combine ( p and f instruments )
    2. Now right click and choose \'Combine
    instruments\' from the popup menu.
    3. In the \'Combine instrument\' window now
    showing there\'s the 2 intruments listed.
    Place the p instrument at the bottom using
    the arrows. Pick \'Layer\' from the \'Using
    Controller\' list and give the new instrument a
    name and bank/patch number. Click OK
    4. Mark all regions in the the top right window,
    dragging the mouse.
    5. Choose the p layer in the velocity window.
    6. Choose the Mix/layer tab in the bottom
    right window. Set attn. control to your
    prefered controller, eg. Mod.Wheel and mark
    the Invert ( this will make the lower layer
    fade out as you raise the mod.wheel).
    7. Hit the Apply Mix/Layer button.
    8. Now choose the upper layer, the f, in the
    velocity window and repeat 6. , only this
    time don\'t click the Invert box, since you
    wan\'t the f layer to fade in as the mod.wheel
    is raised. Remember to hit the Apply button
    9. Save your gig and thats it.

    You now have a basic xfade instrument. When
    you raise the mod.wheel, your p-layer will
    gradually fade out as the f-layer gradually
    fades in on top of it.
