Babylonwaves has released Art Conductor for Expression Maps, a collection of 360 Expression Maps for Cubase. The maps cover a wide range of orchestra libraries including most products by Spitfire as well as LASS, Cinematic Strings and many many others.
The maps are all setup in the same way:
- They use the same abbreviations, which makes working with different libraries much easier. The expressions are in alphabetical order and the key switches follow the natural order within the instruments. This way you find the right expression fast and the most important ones are on the lower key switches. If you prefer the key switches to align with the alphabetical expression, you can re-order them easily with a single click.
- Every map comes in two variation: One is based on "directions" (the articulation latches), the other one on "attributes" (every note needs a discreet expression). You choose what's better for your working style.
- Every expression is color coded: The same colors are being used for the most common articulations. You see a green expression and you know, that's legato. Independent of the library you're working with.
- For Spitfire users with have complete maps for both the old (BML Sable/Mural/Brass/Winds/Phalanx) and new instruments (Chamber Strings and Symphonic Stings/Brass/Woods). Also, all Spitfire maps control the instruments using their UACC standard which make exchanging melodies in between tracks extremely comfortable.
