I was wondering if anyone out there may have reprogrammed it for the EXS24..?
i tried with CDXtract . I works with only one program or "layer" but when i want to merge or stack different programs to control with either velocity or modulation , the assigns samples are not correct.
i probably would require Redmatica Keymap 1.5 to do it properly in a timely matter
Last time I looked at the possibilities of porting to EXS, I found that it lacked the programming features that LD utilizes (Random variations)
I have seen Keymap has the ability for Round Robin. I've had Keymap for about a year and a half, but I've yet to use it. I need a newer mac to run it, which I just haven't got around to yet.
At any rate, I'm not sure there is a worth while advantage to convert to EXS vs the time spent converting. To my knowledge, there isn't a simple way of converting.
The powerchords come in up/dn, palmed up/dn. There is also sus2 and sus4 chords. Lyrical Direct also has powerchord vibrato and powerchord pinch harmonics articulations, as well as up/dn slid into powerchords. There aren't different strum speeds. If you're handy with kontakt, you could experiment with time machine to vary the strum speed. If your looking to slow strums where it's almost arpeggiated sounding, then strumming singles would be more practical.
To be honest, I've never sat back and thought a powerchord strum speed didn't work, it just seems to click as is. Hope that helps
