Programming Articulations / Expressions in Logic Pro X

Hello all,

Can anyone help me get started with editing the articulations / expressions of midi events within the piano roll of Logic Pro X? How does one fine-tune glissandos, portamentos, vibratos, etc., of individual midi events and pairs of events??

I can secondary-click a midi event to access the articulation selection, but there are 255 nameless articulations in there, and I can't tell if any of them change any behavior whatsoever.

Thanks for any tips!

Hi Tye,

you should forget the typical workflow you are used to with sample libraries. SWAM is not a collection of pre-recorded articulations.

Attack strength is controlled by note-on velocity for non-connected/non-overlapped notes.

Legato is performed just playing two connected or overlapped notes. Note-on velocity of the second note controls the transition speed between the two notes.

Vibrato is controlled by ModWheel (CC1).

Other gestures and articulations are controlled by either key-switches or MIDI CCs, as you wish.

Please refer to the User Manual for more details.

Best!
