Hi folks,

lately I have been thinking on sound variations. They add so much freedom in composing, but are kind of a nightmare to set up (especially with large orchestral libraries).

It would be amazing if there was a program that could scan the plugin for the crucial articulations data (KS note and Articulation name) and insert it right into an articulation map. Perhaps something like snipping tool for windows to capture the text and then export it into different rows.

I am not really sure if something like this can be implemented into S1, but it would save us a lot of time.

Perhaps some of you were thinking something similar, or have a different view on this one.

Cheers fellow musicians ;)

It's actually up to the sample player developers (Orchestral Tools, Native Instruments) or any 3rd-party developer to create such a utility.

By the way, if you have maps for these libraries in Cubase's Expression Maps format, you can convert them into Sound Variations using Studio One Toolbox:
