    This is a bug report. If there's a better place to leave these, please let me know. When switching an instance from Discover to Core, the keyswitch root note is reset to default.

    I recently upgraded from Discover to Core (actually to Pro, but I don't have room to download all that just yet). With Discover, I had gone through the entire amazing Spitfire BBC SO template and dragged all the keyswitches to start on A0, except where that would interfere with the range of a low instrument, in which case I assigned them to start on A3. That took an entire afternoon. Upon upgrading and switching each instance in the template to Core, all that work was rendered useless because the keyswitch setting was lost.

    I'm considering yielding to the Spitfire default and setting the switches to buttons on the NanoKontrol2. But I have a few years of muscle memory invested in keyswitching at those certain places on the 88-key controller. I'd much rather the setting were retained when mode switching.

    Keyswitches do not show up in Studio One Instruments Keyboard Layout. Cannot even switch by using keys on keyboard at C-2 / D#-2. This is BBC SO Discover Version - please advise.

    Having the same issue in DP: Keyswitch keyboard icon does not show up in the BBC plug-in window. The Lock icon is there, but that's it...

    Like Steve and Mark are saying... I'm seeing the keyboard in BBCOS Discover but not the highlit keys indicating key switching. Pressing what I'm given to believe should be the key switches seems to do nothing. Keeps things from being "playable". VERY FRUSTRATING.

    Hi Mark, I was helped by sending an email ton Spitfire but I'll try to pass it on here...

    See that little keyboard looking icon on the right, above the articulations and below the multicolored orchestra layout? To the left of the padlock icon.

    Click on that and drag it to move where the key switching happens. 

    I will add that I'm still figuring out anomalies; like I'd moved my key switches in Discover but then, after purchasing Core, I found I had to re-do my key switch edits.

    Hi Mark Kieswetter

    If you move the down arrows (next to the Keyboard UI) you will see the Keyswitches highlighted in green.

     

    Best,

    Okay, so a I’ve found the little keyboard icon and I’ve managed to move the key switches. 
    can someone explain to me WHY the default keyswitches are below the range of an 88 not MIDI keyboard?

    I guess it is that you would use an additional controller to leave the keyboard free - it's a pain, I know!

    Hi!

    Am I assuming right that the placement of keyswitches is not saved in Discover?

    Whenever I return to a preset the keyswitches has returned to default location.

    Save the KS position as a User Preset - that's the best I can offer...
