    Stradivari + wireless AX7, it's a gas ...

    One of my "keyboards" is an AX-7 controller with a wireless midi connection to a desktop with Forte'. I just added the Stradivari and now I'm the hokiest gypsy violinist around . Since the Strad stops at G, I used Forte's midi layering and remapping to set up keyswitches on the low E (default), F (doublestops) and F# (pizzicato).

    Anyway, sounds great live and in the jive lexicon: it's really flipping people out.

    Thank you Gary-o, Giorgio and Stefano!

    Hello Ernie,

    I'm a violinist and the lowest note on a violin is its open string G below middle C. The Garritan Strad is exactly as it should be.

    I'm just curious as to why you would want to try to change this unless I have misunderstood you in some way.

    His keyboard, Michael, has 3 more keys after the low G: he remapped keyswitch to have on the portable keyboard the full Violin range and the 3 basic keyswitch just before the first note:
    E,F, F# are keyswitch
    G start playing!

    No violin range manipulation, don't worry!

    That's great. Thanks for clarifying that Fabio.

    Because I used to play viola?

    True statement, but not the reason and no remapping of sounds. The explanation given is correct.
