I've been experiementing with using both CC-1 and CC-2 (and many others) as controllers in Sonar with JABB and wanted to know other peoples thoughts. They both seem to control volume, but I'm hard pressed to hear a difference in timbre or other aspects.
My questions are:
Are they intended to function the same way?
Is there an interaction between the two?
For trumpet and sax, do they interact with CC-26 and 27 in term of timbre and tone.
I guess if I knew the interactions between controllers, then it would be easier to understand their impact. For example, if I shape CC-1 to rise during a 1/2 note and keep cc-26 constant, then the tone quality will only change a little bit, but if I increase cc-26 the same rate, then the tone will change more. What if CC-2 was active during the same note?
The forum has been fun to read and many thanks for the posts. It has been quite absorbing working with JABB. My wife wonders if I will ever come out of my music room.
I am starting to get the hang of things and just want to learn more. The tutorials and examples are helpful, but they don't talk about interactions between controllers.
Note: With the Kontakt2 Player version of J&BB mod wheel (cc#1,) isn’t the only way to control
volume/timbre. Expressive instruments will also respond to breath control (cc#2) or MIDI
expression (cc#11.) It is not necessary to take any steps to activate these alternate controllers – they
are always available. One important caveat: You must use only one of these controllers at a time.
