The Abbey Road Orchestra has a number of new features:
- Right / Left Hand Mapping
- Mute / Solo functionality on the mixer signals.
- Soft Take Over
RIGHT / LEFT MAPPING
Right/Left Mapping applies to the single hit keys which are duplicated a whole tone apart.
When enabled, the mapping on the keyboard changes to accommodate left hand/right hand performances. For example, C1 is left hand samples only and D1 is right handed samples only for the technique selected. With the feature on, the right hand keys change hue on the keyboard as a visual indicator.
When disabled, the single hit keys behave in a regular ‘two finger mapping’ state. For example, playing C1 / D1 after one another (in any sequence) cycles through the round robins for the technique, always recalling samples in an alternating Right Left sticking pattern.
MUTE / SOLO FUNCTIONALITY
Found below the signal faders for each microphone signal and two new buttons for mute and solo:
Click S (Solo) to isolate that signal. Hear multiple signals isolated by clicking S below multiple signals.
Click M (Mute) to silence a signal whilst keeping it active. Silence multiple active signals by clicking M below multiple signals.
SOFT TAKE OVER
Found in the preset settings in the top menu of the plugin, "Soft Takeover" introduce new functionality between the velocity sensitivity and the dynamics fader.
Soft Takeover OFF: The velocity of the rolls / longs are determined exclusively by the modwheel.
Soft Takeover ON: Roll keys are now velocity sensitive (i.e how hard or soft the key is pressed determines the dynamic).
The modwheel / dynamics fader only becomes active once the user scrolls to the velocity level they have triggered on the roll key.
