Hi there! I have the BBC symphony discover vst and am trying to automate all strings at the same time. Right now, they're in the same folder. All strings have a parameter called "expression" which I would like to automate on all by only shaping 1 automatoin "line".

I can easily automate volume on all strings by simply using a VCA or folder track. However, that doesn't help me too much with the "expression" parameter.

Any ideas how to set it up? All help appreciated :)

If all of the MIDI tracks are playing through one instance of the VST plug-in, you just add Expression to the controllers for the VST Instrument track.

If not, you may have to manually copy paste the desired Expression events to each of the individual MIDI tracks.
