    Question String vibrato

    What control should I use to make more vibrato with the solo-strings? For example: if I held a long note to start with little vib. and then as the note grows longer then do more vibrato. Is it possible?

    The vbrato for the solo and section strings is not adjustable, it's part of the sample. With the new update, vibrato control was added to solo wind instruments (NV samples) with CC#17 and aftertouch controllers. Hope this helps.

    You have to pick up your PC and start shaking it slowly at first while playing the part you want then faster as needed.

    Re: String vibrato

    Real vibrato is unique to every note - see my post real vibrato and crafting phrases.
    In a nutshell you can fake vibrato by using very slight variations in pitch shift and mod wheel volume control. Vibrato is a combination of volume fluctuation and piitch fluctuation. You cant take vibrato out of a sample but, especially with long notes you can give it a bit extra maybe at the end.

    Exclamation Re: String vibrato

    Hi peeps,

    I just received my GPO 2 days ago, and man, is this a nice toy.

    Now I'm trying to transform this toy into a working tool...

    But back to vibrato.

    I'm trying to get my phatboy knob MIDI controller (no pun intended...) in the ball game. I've updated my GPO with october's... updates, so I'm learning to use to the KS programs and the new controllers. My problem is this one : I can't get to control the aftertouch, for vibrato intensity on NV brass & woodwind instruments. All other controllers work fine, but as my master keyboard doesn't have AT, I'm trying to get midi-ox (a midi mapping proggie I use between my phatboy and my sequencer cos the phatboy is not programmable, so I have to remap CC events to the ones I wanna use in GPO) to map a CC event into an AT event. Problem is, MIDI AT events have a note value as data 1 value, and I don't get that note value when I intercept the CC event from the Phatboy.

    I don't think this was crystal clear, sorry, the problem is a bit technical and english is not my main language

    So I wonder if there's another way to do this, like emulating AT thru a special CC.

    Thanks for any help

    Well...

    My mistake.

    I was trying to map it to a Key After Touch event, instead of a Channel After Touch event, which doesn't need any note info. Now it works fine.

    At least I've learned stuff about the MIDI protocol...
