I\'m just in middle of translating SISS into Halion 2.0 which can now deal with multidynamic crossfades (hurrah!) but unfortunately the translator doesn\'t deal with them (boo!) so I\'m in the position of setting them up myself, and I was wondering the best way to structure it.
One of the things Halion 2.0 can do (and I\'m sure giga can too) is have the amplitude be affected by note on velocity. It seems to me best to switch this off, otherwise you could have the modwheel set to fade mainly a piano sample, hit a note at velocity 127 and get a nice loud piano sample which would be a bit inappropriate.
So, if you\'re not going to control volume with note on velocity, what\'s the best way to do it? Do you tend to program crossfades with the modwheel so that they produce increasing volumes too, or do you just use the crossfade to change the timbre keeping a relatively constant volume, and then create changes in volume with midi controllers 7 or 11? I think you could do it either way, but I was wondering what the pros do.
Any thoughts on the subject before I dive in and do all the crossfades would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
