Whoops wrong section.
I recently bought Garritan Personal Orchestra for the purpose of using it during live performances of string sections. However I am running into so many problems I thought I wouldn't have to think about when buying this.
1. Keyswitches in Full Strings KS. I own an 88 key keyboard, but 80% of the keyswitches are below the 88 keys. I only need a few of the keyswitches too. So can I choose where/what keyswitches are assigned? My guess is no. Also, I need to change articulations quickly, so how can I do that without playing stride piano?
2. My sustain pedal does not appear to work with the Full Strings KS. In the manual it says it should. How do I get the sustain pedal to work to play legato passages in strings?
EDIT: 3.5 How do I add split points? Ex: Harp in the left hand, strings in the right.
3. I don't want to use the Aria Player anymore. How do use the Garritan library in a different sampler, such as Ableton Live?
The keyboard I am using is the Yamaha P140 if that makes any difference.
Sorry if I sound rude, but I get very frustrated when I spend money on software that does not do what I thought it would.
