I've got the SWAM Violin. I want to play notes with some variation. I don't have a keyboard to do this. Too many complications that won't allow me to, so I have to stick to a compact design. I also can't play instruments full stop because of cognitive issues.
I use FL Studio, I managed to get the VST to work by changing expression. But I've encountered a new issue where I can't change the vibrato or pressure with any of the FL Studio channels within a pattern. And the mapping for some reason on this software only lists CC? I don't know what that is, I just know the notes on an FL Studio pattern. How do I assign those to the pattern?
For reference, I used to use instruments from a Kontakt library, which had a simple variation change using a single note on the pattern. I can set for example, vibrato, to B#0. It would play the following notes with vibrato.
Note: I half solved this problem, but it's inconvenient. I can go to the parameters, right click the CC, and create automation link. But it isn't that convenient, since there's a bug in FL Studio where deleting automations won't delete them permanently from a pattern. It will remain.
Also, are there any presets for this violin? Mine sounds all computer-y. I've tried different models and settings and none seem to work. Everyone else's violin sounds different to mine. What's the problem here?
