It would be great if it would be possible to define Key Switches in Multi Instruments to enable or disable / switch between instruments in the multi instrument or MIDI channels. This way it would be possible to combine the articulations of multiple orchestral libraries to one key-switchable multi instrument that can send each articulation to different effects.

This is the feature that would make a lot of composers jump ship from Cubase. Unfortunately, even popular libraries such as CSS (Cinematic Studio Strings) cannot be triggered correctly in S1 as it relies on CC messages as well as Keyswitches.

Seems like an easy programming job to me. just make the channels availlable on and off on the keys of a keyboard. Is it really soooo difficult? People have been asking for this or Something that leads to this since 2012 judging from the forums. in general its about creating keyboard switches for smples that dont have kewswitches for certain articulations. like Eastwest symphonics Mod Wheel articulations etc. etc.

remember those questions? Ived read them all this Morning. lol
