Thanks Craig for sharing this with us.
"Just wanted to share a solution I found that ,might help out some other users in my situation.
I bought the Strad with the understanding my volume controller on my midi controller could be assigned to either CC7 or CC11 for expression. As it turns out, the direct translation from Italian was a little fuzzy. It only acted as a volume pedal (CC7)
As I was preparing to purchase a new controller to use the Strad library with, it occurred to me that there must be a software solution to this problem. In fact there is.
For Sonar or Cubase users going to www.tencrazy.com
there is a bunch of Free MFX midi plugins. There is one specifically called CC Map. Simply insert the plugin into your midi track in Sonar and set the values of incoming and outgoing CC#'s and I can now play the Strad in real time using my volume pedal as an expression pedal.
For others, they can go to www.bome.com
and grab midi translator. It's not free and not as elegant but does get the job done. It requires virtual midi ports to output the data to but does work.
Just thought I would pass this along as you might have other support requests that fall in the same category as my plight. Thanks again for producing such a wonderful library!"
