    GPO and DP5 mixing board questions

    I an new to GPO and have been unable to activate the faders on DP when in mixdown. All other sound modules are fine, byt GPO sounds (in various midi traxs) do not respond. The fader on the GPO instruments trax is fine. Any suggestions?

    Hi Andy,

    Welcome to the Garritan forum on Northernsounds.
    What instruments do you have loaded? The volume of wind and string instruments is controlled by having CC1 (modwheel) data in the tracks. (Percussion stuff is largely velocity-based.) Without this modwheel info you'll have a hard time hearing the instruments and there's a likely chance that the instruments will default to a value of zero. Check the modwheel dial on the instruments in the Kontakt Player 2 interface. Does it show a value of zero?

    Best,
    Reegs

    I believe that what you want is to control volume (CC#7) and PAN(CC#11) from the mixing board during mixing. KP2 has an option to permit control of these two to pass from its own internal controls to what are called "standard controllers".

    To do this in KP2, open the "instrument options" menu for each instrument you wish to control. Select, at the top of the menu the "controller" button.

    The third item in the list will be, "Accept standard controllers for volume and pan". Select this option by checking the box to the right.

    This should do the job.

    As a general practice, while you are composing it is probably best to set volume and pan values from KP2, in fact, they are already set for standard placement of instruments in the concert orchestra. But when you are mixing you will want to change control to the mixing board as described above.

    By the way, as you know CC#1, Modwheel, is used in GPO to give a volume/expression shape to the instrument as you are playing it. This is not the volume control you want for mixing. It is rather to be regarded as part of the performance of the individual instrument rather than a mixing or mastering tool.
