I have only one score-track and with keyswitches I can get different sounds, like pizzicato, mutes, down-bows, etc....... But at certain spots I want the down-bows sound a bit more aggressive. For this I can add another instrument, namely Vlns1 Short Bows KS ag.
Normally I split that score-track in SONAR into multiple tracks, with notes for smooth legato playing, moderate aggressive playing (controlled by CC#1) and more fierce playing (the KS ag version controlled by velocity).
This makes reading the score in SONAR rather complicated, with those divided snippets of notes. So I wondered the following:
[you see that I have 3 instruments all on out 3/4 and on channel 2]
- is it possible the give SONAR some instruction to play the instrument located at knob 2(that square on the left), or at knob 3 or 4.
- or should I do this with channel switching, and if so, can I switch channels with some sort of instruction. Of course, then I have to assign those different instruments above to different channels.
So we haved one input-score-MIDI-track going into this ARIA thing with some sort of instruction to play where needed the instrument loaded at 2,3 or 4.
Please, just answer like: Yes, you can do that switching with the following instructions. Or of course, no way you can do that.
While you are thinking of a solution, I'll have a long walk.
