    why dont you just release a proper manual for the libraries?

  • Sandy

    Hi Stefan, many of our libraries do have manuals which you can find in the "Key Stats" on their product page and we are always adding more manuals. If you cannot find the manual for your library please reach out to us on support and we'll be happy to help.

    What would be really great is if someone could put together a Cubase expression map that has all these expressions....

  • Stefan Kusch

    @Sandy. I apologize that I did not knew that. thanks for clarifying that.

    @Alex. I also had that wish but then I found it better working with single instrument files and not using Keyswitches at all. Better and faster workflow

    Hi Alex

    We are planning a similar article soon for Cubase expression maps after some testing. I the meantime if you need any assistance setting up an expression map please reach out to our support team and we can offer advice.

    Thanks

    @Sandy,
    At the very end of the tut. above we see a yellow box that says
    "Pizzicato UACC CC#56"
    That seems to imply using a CC# other than CC#32.

    Would it be correct to assume that what that box actually means is
    CC#32 with a *value* of 56?
    Thanks!

  • Sandy

    Hi Steve

    That's correct, as stated in the text above that image, this is the value of CC#32 that is displayed in the sidebar "UACC CC#56" essentially means MIDI CC#32 with a value of 56.

    Thanks
    Sandy

    @sandy
    Any news on that expression map mentioned above?...

  • Sandy

    Hi Alex, yes the article I mentioned previously was published here https://spitfireaudio.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360006347473-Using-Expression-Maps-with-UACC

    Thanks

    My confusion is in actual use. If I pull up the Spitfire Chamber Strings, a - Violins 1.nki patch.... If I'm using OSC, and using your OSC UACC KS template... there are all sorts of artics that are not in this instrument... so in order to switch artics and know what I'm doing, I have to have the Kontakt window open. I could as easily click with a mouse. Using OSC, how do I know which artics are available for a particular instrument? 

    I assume you have to create a custom layout

  • Jack

    Hey Mark, I have created a ticket for you. It will be addressed very shortly.

  • Henricus Maes

    Any updates on this Jack?

  • Ben

    Hi Harry, Jack is talking to Mark above him when he says he's created a ticket. This is a ticket in our support system where we will talk directly to Mark. If you want to create a ticket to discuss a similar issue, please go to spitfireaudio.com/support and "submit a request"

  • Mark Hollingsworth

    The simplest solution ultimately was to use the large generic template, then copy and paste buttons etc into a custom template for groups of instruments like Chamber Strings main patches. I was resisting but it ended up not taking that long. You can also just look up the CC numbers and create new buttons. Once you get into it and do a couple it goes very fast!

  • Henricus Maes

    Thanks Mark. I found some touschosc layouts for other libraries as well so it's indeed just defining something that works out best for a specific library. ;)

  • Adrian

    Hello this is important to me, COULD YOU PLEASE document the UACC KS numbers???? Where can I find it? Not the UACC but UACC keyswitches please

    And after a long investigation WHY   why Performance and Legato Fingered ARE BOTH UACC CC#20

    Is it a mistake??? How to use it? Does Performance Legato EXCLUDE The Legato Performance? It should not be like that!

  • Mark Hollingsworth

    Adrian, They are listed at the top of this page. Also if you set to UACC KS, there is a cog wheel just above where you set the articulation lock. Right click on the cog and you'll see all the articulations listed.

  • Adrian

    Yes, but if you want to use Performance Legato and Legato Performance with the UACC, how should it work? Performance Legato Plays, Legato Performance Plays should they play altogether? 

  • Grant Floering

    Adrian I am in the same boat. Has anyone found a work around for this? I'm using Babylon Waves in logic and every patch works great, except for the performance legato patches. I can manually turn performance legato on, but then when I switch articulations the performance legato stays on. So strange!

    I'm attempting to use UACC for Ableton 10.0.6 but I'm seeing that there is no CC#32 available in the Clip->Envelope-Midi Control.

    Any documentation available for how to work around this?

  • Sandy

    Hi Marc

    Ableton uses CC32 as part of its program change specification so CC#32 cannot be used as a MIDI envelope, for Ableton users I might recommend UACC KS instead which doesn't use CC#32, we have an article on that here https://spitfireaudio.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001951793-What-is-UACC-KS-and-how-do-I-use-it-

    Thanks

    I've bought the Ricotti Percussion which seem to be able to use UACC for different sticks. But none of the possible sticks is mentioned in the list above. So if I'd use Ricotti with UACC and CC#32 - how would I know the values for the different sticks please?

    Thanx
