Copy Maps with Next MIDI Channel
Many Instruments offer the same articulation assignments
for the patches loaded into different MIDI Channels.
For example, the Violins, Violas and Cellos may use the same
articulation names and Key Switch assignments. In this case,
you can select all Violin Maps and copy them by pressing the
“Copy Maps Next Channel” button. The duplicated Maps
(Fig.4) are selected automatically. You can type a short
Instrument Name in any “---“ text field to name all selected
Maps in one go, for example , “Va” (Violas).
Copy Map with Next Key Switch
AG Logic Articulation Maps Editor offers two “Copy Map Next
Key Switch” algorithms which can be used according to the
Instrument Key Switch specifics:
• Copy KS Semitone. This algorithm increases the KS Map
assignment by a semitone.
• Copy KS White Keys. This algorithm increases the KS Map
assignment following the white piano keys order.
For example, you can select the first created Map “1.Vn.Sus”
(Fig.3) and press the “Copy Map Next KS1” button.
A new duplicated Map is created with the next Key Switch
Note number (KS2, Program, CC1 & CC2 are copied as well).
After the quick duplication you only type a short articulation
name in the “---“ text field.
AG Articulation Map
An Articulation Map is a collection of MIDI assignments.
AG Articulation Map includes a MIDI Channel, two Key Switches,
a Program Change and two Controllers, which are sent to the
Instrument to switch the articulation, or to switch the
Instrument MIDI Channel and articulation simultaneously.
There are two types of Articulation Maps:
• MIDI Channel assignment only. You assign different MIDI
Channels (1-16) for each Map. This assignment type behaves
as a “Standard MIDI Channel Switcher” and is ideal for
switching a single patch Instruments (LASS, EW Play etc.)
via a single Logic track.
• MIDI Channel and KS, PC, CC. You can set a custom MIDI
Channel, two Key Switches, a Program Change and two
Controllers to recall a given articulation according to
the Instrument specifics.
Simple Map (Ch & KS1) assignment.
Fig.1 illustrates a simple Map assignment which switches
the Spitfire ICENI "Woodwinds Low" legato via Key Switches.
Advanced Map (Ch, KS1, KS2 & CC) assignment.
Fig.2 illustrates advanced Map assignment which switches
the following parameters in the Vienna Instrument:
• Key Sw. 1 switches the correspondent Matrix.
• Key Sw. 2 switches the X Matrix axis ("pPo" column).
• Controller 1 switches the Y Matrix axis ("pPo" row).
