But I could sure use some help!
I realize this is probably a "are you really that ignert?" question, but I have exhausted my resources trying to figure it out. I have searched the manual, I have looked over most of the tutorials on ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ and watched most of the videos. Most of that stuff talks about the editor and I don't think it applies to my problem.
I have GS3 Ensemble. I am trying to create an "ENSEMBLE" of a 1st Violin, a 2nd Violin, a Viola and a Cello. Should be simple enough, right? Well, in Ensemble I am using the Sonic Implants Ensemble Strings Con Sordino.gig
I open it and load:
Sonic Implants Ens Strings Con Sordino R
into Channel 1 of GS.
I am using Sonar as a REWIRE host. I have my MIDI data on a track, I have set my OUTPUT of the MIDI track to GIGA3, I have set my channel to 1: Sonic..., my bank to 0 and my patch to 1 (GS shows the INSTRUMENT for the entire patch to =1)
My problem is that everything I send to GS with MIDI data is in a range of C1 thru C7 and there is nothing that distinguishes any of the notes between Violin, Viola, Cello, etc.
If I open this giga file in the editor, I can see that this instrument actually has the following dimensions:
and each of those have dimensions with different velocity levels and "REL" - (which I'm not even sure what that is).
OK, all this for my question: How do I distinguish each "instrument" (DIMENSION) in my MIDI track? If I want the 1st Violin to play and the 2nd to rest, how do I know what I'm sending to GS is actually for the 1st Violin?
I'm sure this is something only newbies don't understand. Thanks in advance for your help.
