Hi,

I'm creating my custom presets for Synchronized Dimension Strings, and I would like to see which is the fastest way.

First of all, I'm editing the presets containing all the players, like "1st Violins full - All players". Is this type of preset the same as those including only an individual player, like "1st Violins full - Player 1", when I mute all the other players in the All players preset?

If positive, this would mean that I could either use the same preset for the solo players, or derive the individual Player presets from the All players presets, by removing the other players.

If loading the All players presets with all the cells/patches deactivated, I guess that they will only take the memory needed to load that individual player that is playing.

Am I correct?

Paolo

Hi Paolo!

=> Yes.

>> If loading the All players presets with all the cells/patches deactivated, I guess that they will only take the memory needed to load that individual player that is playing.

=> Yes, but if you have the option "Enable on MIDI activity" turned on, the slots containing the other players will get enabled as soon as you start playing. If you deactivate all channels but one on the mix tab, only the patches in the slots routed to the activated mixer channel will get loaded to RAM.

Best regards,
Andi

Thank you, Andi!

So, to keep the number of presets at the bare minimum, I could:

- Program the All players versions
- When I need a single instrument, just deactivate all the other channels in the Mix page

I could even remove the Players dimension, since even creating Groups and Desks can be done on-the-fly when adding the All players preset to a sequence.

I've finally made my All players presets, assembling the regularsul pont, sul tasto and sordino versions of the Dimension Strings.

I could now complete the Group and Desk branches of the various versions, but I'm still not sure I should do. Being able to activate/deactivate each individual player in the Mix pages seems extremely hand, and the way the things are preferably done in Synchron Player.

But VSL also programmed the Group and Desk branches in the All players presets, so I wonder if they can be of some use. Maybe they were there for divisi writing, without having to load a different preset?

Hello Paolo!

You can use your all players preset for desks and individual players as well by activating the channels that you want on the mix tab. We made the desk and single player presets, because they are easier to understand and there's no need to change anything if you don't want to trigger all players.

Best,
Andi

Thank you, Andi! I see I can choose either way. So, it's my choice either to go for the minimal option (no player selection, only mixer channels on/off), or for a more ready-to-use one (adding all the player selection). The end result will be the same.

One way to decide is conditioned by the use I will do of the full section and the separate players. Since I usually reserve different channels in VEP for full sections, divisi and individual players, I guess the minimal option, based for density on turning mixer channels on/off, would be the cleanest way.

Paolo
