Topic: Standardizing Key Switching

    Standardizing Key Switching

    Wouldn't it be great if all the library developers could get together and create a standard for the mapping of articulation key switching?

    As, to the best of my knowledge, hell has not frozen over, I guess this task will be up to the user.

    On that point, I would like to know your thoughts and experiences concerning this type of customization.

    Thanks

    This could be a good idea, but the problem is that there are so many different articulations depending on the instrument, that I think this would be impossible.

    I think that as various products (and samplers) have so many different ways of working, we would all have to use the same sampler, same articulations, and have the same degree of keyboard skills.

    What would be nice though, would be to be able to re-program keyswitching "en masse", so that it didn't take hours to alter every instrument to our own taste.

    They will for sure, directly after they got together to create the standard
    for protection dongles.

    It'd be great if they would all go the way of a free softsynth I've tested
    some months ago:

    Ctrl + right click on any button, move the button on your controler you
    want to assign it to, et voila.

    Extremely intuitive.

    In GS3 you can build stacks and assign easily keyswitches any way you want. I like this approach as it allows the user to build a template that suits them best.

    It's a challange for sequener developers to do a better handling of keyswitches.
    Something like a special enviroment to change customized articulations.

    Every instrument has different articulatians, even all my instruments can not have the same keyswitch layout.

    It would be great, if all sample developers would program
    controller 0 (program change)in addition to the keyswitches.
    That would give more possibilities to create new keyswitch handlings in a sequenzer

    Wasn't this the idea behind the FX-MAX program AMP, which has never been released?

    I don't know. VSL can't even get it to be consistent within it's own library. How can we ever expect there to be consistency across developers. I was just arguing this issue with Herb on the VSL forum.

    Of course, it isn't really that hard, so I think it's a great idea. Who's going to do it.
