I'm pretty new to music production and most of this software, so sorry if my questions aren't very clear... I'm not very knowledgeable about everything.

The way I've been creating music so far is with LMMS. I'll open the Vienna Synchron Player within this program which allows me to create music using sounds from the VSL. I've been able to do a lot with just this, but the problem is with using the velocity x-fade controller. I would like to be able to create notes that crescendo / decrescendo and have the changing velocity layers as the note gets louder / quieter. I have some knowledge in using controllers and automation tracks within LMMS in order to control certain functions of the Vienna Synchron Player while music is playing. However I'm not able control the velocity x-fade function. I can get a single note to change volume, but I don't get the changing tone quality or different velocity layers.

Now I realize that LMMS is a free program so it's not the most advanced DAW out there, but I can't find much information on this topic and I don't want to just start spending money on software when I don't know how compatible it is with VSL. So I would just like to know either A) if someone knows how to control the velocity x-fade function through LMMS... or B) better alternatives to LMMS which allow me to easily control these types of functions of the Vienna Sync player and create music more efficiently. Like I said, I don't completely know what I'm doing, so any advice would be helpful. Thanks

I don't know LMMS, but I strongly recommend the Vienna Instruments videos. There is one video dedicated to velocity x-fade. In order to crossfade, the function has to be enabled. 


Hope this helps!

The videos and manuals are only a good overview.

Necessary is a big manual for the synchron player.

VSL - come on.

Welcome vulcan, 

Strong first posting. So what would you like to read in such an excessive manual?
