    About disabling mod wheel

    Hi!

    Is there any good way to disable mod wheel in the GPO player? I'm building layered sounds in Ableton Live and trying to make a string pad. When I layer sounds as one, I can't have any variable factor (like the modwheel) there, but should have a sound, that always sounds the same.

    If there's no proper solution, I'd like to suggest this for the future players: to be able to set modwheel data (or any volume controlling midi channel) to some static value when needed, so that it could be used as a pad or some other kind of gig sound. Realistic sound isn't the point there, but just a sound that behaves like the others in the same rack/layerset/etc.

    Try downloading the X-Custom instruments on the Garritan site. You can choose which controller you'd like to use and also adjust the dynamic range slider.

    Oh, thanks! I didn't know there's something like that!

    I just install them by copying the folders to ie. X-Custom folder in GPO Library -directory? I have a mac. Or should I replace the previous folders in the Instruments-folder?

    Thanks again!

    Copy it to the Instruments folder. It doesn't replace anything - it's an addition.

    The contents in the instruments folder are dated on July 2005 while the contents of the x-custom folder are from the end of 2004. So I can still replace the files in my current Instrument folder with no trouble? The files in them are the same (at least some)

    Oh, and one extra questions: are the controller settings made with x-custom in the player global or session-specific?

    Once again: You do *not* replace the files in the Instruments folder. You just put the X-Custom folder in the Instruments folder. All other files in the Instruments folder remain untouched. The dates are irrelevant.

    Any settings you make to the player will be saved with your song files, not with the library .nki files. So, session-specific.
