Keyswitches: Assign Keyswitch to Notes / Note Attributes

+38 votes
asked Jul 16, 2020 in Key Switches by Lukas Ruschitzka (194,420 points)
Currently keyswitches are separate from notes and can be inserted at a certain position.

For an alternative workflow we need a way to assign a keyswitch / articulation to particular notes. These articulations are then always triggered before that note. So these keyswitches would rather behave like attributes.

The advantage is that notes can be moved around and edited and would always keep their keyswitch / articulation.

This is my preferred way of working. In Logic as well as cubase. So please

this is pretty much the only way articulation switching should work: articulations TIED to the notes instead of being a separate entity.

The way Logic does it is absolutely spot on and by far the best currently available.

Please if you focus on this and on the score editor, you can absolutely overcome all the competitors because you have in your hands all the ingredients to satisfy the target of orchestral composers.


Best regards

+1 You got my vote honest vote for that.

To move notes around without losing the articulation is necessary for a sensical workflow. I don't see why both articulation and note are separated and have to be moved independently of each other.

I agree. This is the way I used articulations in Cubase and I think it's more "musical".

Related to this, I do think that Studio One should look the good things of the Cubase Expression maps (I've added 2 features in the request zone: view KS in inspector and remapping KS -to have them assigned to a controller easily, and to make Babylonwaves develop his maps to SO5-).

If they improve these things KS in Studio One would be awesome.
