    so i just zipped the folders, i hope it makes it easier to copy, you have to copy the folders into the "user folder/session strings pro 2" then it may ask if you allow to overwrite, then just allow, the folders contain then the presets. I´ve done the presets you asked for in the last post, i hope i have not forgotten something cause it were not that much presets. Ive set velocity to key velocity, if you need also velocity controlled by the modwheel i can do that. I maybe need some time but i will help you of course.

    Hello,

    if you have a friend who can help you it´s not that hard i would say, if you have the instrument open, not the ensemble presets of course, it will show the main page. The articulations are over the page selector, your friend could set for you up to nine articulations, four are set by default from C-1 to D#1 but if you set all nine you will have them from C-1 to G#-1. There are twenty-two different articulations you can choose from. If you want i can also try to save some presets for you, then you would have to put them into the right place but i could do that if you want but i guess it´s easier if someone can help you in person on your computer.

    Anyway I made a test file and you have to put it into your "Native Lybraries\Session Strings Pro 2\Instruments" folder, if you want to test it out. But that file is not browsable from komplete kontrol, only from within kontakt the name is "basses - modern different articulations test", for browsing from komplete kontrol i created an .nksn file and i had to upload it as a zip file, this file goes into the folder "C:\Users\your user name\Documents\Native Instruments\User Content\Session Strings Pro 2\Basses - Modern", then you can browse it from komplete kontrol as a user file. If you need anything please ask.

    @Uwe303 Yes sir, please help me by creating nksn zip files for all the presets. It'll be a very good help for the whole visually impaired community. Thanks sir.

    @Uwe303 Sir, some other things such as Smart Voice Split, Smart chord, vilocity via keys or mod weel, etc also are not accessible via Accessibility Mode of Komplete Kontrol. If you can help including those functions in the snapshots, it'll be too helpful to the whole VI Music Producer Community.
    Thanks Sir. Sorry for requesting these lots of things sir. But it'll be so easy for the whole community and will completely fulfill the aim of inclusivity.

    No problem, I will later try my best to help you and I hope we can somehow make it work. I can also ask a friend to help me to test it so it's maybe easier for you. I don't know if you can unpack zip files on mac but the .nksn file should go here:

    "Macintosh HD > Users > *Username* > Documents > Native Instruments > User Content"

    Wow! Sir, Congrats! Your effort is working! Just Stacato, Pizzicato, etc articulations are missing, otherwise the scoops, falls, everything is there in the .nksn file! Thank you so much sir! However, it was just a test file, so i can understant sir. Anyways, please create and upload the full snapshot whenever you have the time for it sir.
    Thank you so so so much sir again.

    There is no full snapshot in the sense it can contain all articulations, I can only set 9 articulations from a total of 24 as I said before, I can write you later the names of the different articulations and you can tell me what collections of 9 per snapshot you want to have. And I will make them for you and maybe some other stuff, like set the mod wheel to control dynamics in a snapshot, but I will have to look a bit deeper into that library cause I don't use it so I don't know exactly what's possible.

    Okay Sir, Legato, Stacato, Pizzicato and Portamento (Articulations) and Smart Voice Split, Smart Chords and Vilocity via Keys / Mod Weel (Functions). These are the must have and important articulations and functions for me.


  • vatsalmandaliya24
    vatsalmandaliya24 Member Posts: 21 Member

    If Possible, there can be another way that some articulations can be controled via Key Swiches and some via the customised komplete kontrol paramiters (like On / Of a specific articulation). this is just an option. Otherwise, as i mentioned before, those primary articulations and functions are most important for me.

    There is one mode where you can select between two articulations with the note velocity, that might also make sense with some combinations of articulations. I need a bit time, I can make the presets tomorrow or latest on saturday. And what is the best way to send you the files, in two zip files named that you know where all the files go from each zip file, I guess that's the best way and makes things easier.

    Yes Sir, send me the files using the best way which you've mentioned.

    So the articulations in this instrument are:

    Legato; Portamento; Glissando; Sustain; Accented; Staccato, Spiccato; Pizzicato; Diminuendo; Forte Piano; Tremolo, Trill; Trill Semi; Trill Whole; Slide Slow up or down; Slide Fast up or down; Accented Crescendo Fast; Accented Crescendo Slow; Crescendo Fast

    so if you have a further wish of combinations please ask cause i don´t know what you want but i made the one you described with the important stuff as a start and another one as test, where i used the modwheel to select between legato or portamento, the control strip as midi controller 11 controls the velocity, i can change that if you want, and of course the pedal at control number 64 controls the hold of a sound.

    the Articulations are as follow: C-1 is legato; C#-1 is staccato; D-1 is pizzicato; D#-1 is portamento; E-1 is tremolo; F-1 is Accented; F#-1 is diminuendo; G-1 is trill semi; G#-1 is trill whole

    Unfortunately, in this case, smart chord has so many options that i don´t know if it makes sense if i save you, lets say just smart chord c major with wide voicing, there are 144 combinations in total alone with smart chords and i can save 24 at once in a preset , but i will make you 3 examples too. You switch the smart chord presets with C#-2, D#-2, F#-2, G#-2, the black keys in the playable area have also functions like warm, depth just try it out

    And one good thing is we only need the nksn files, it´s not much but if you can tell me a bit more i can make more, sorry im not a musician who can reed notes and all that so i have no idea what combinations make sense in a musical way.


    the zip file is named after the sub folder where you have to put them like last time, the ones with ensemble in the name go into session strings pro 2\ensemble - modern

    the others like last time into session strings pro 2\basses - modern


    sorry for it to be so much, if you have any questions, please ask, i´m also learning here a lot so i don´t know anything, but we will work all out and it will work


    you can call me Uwe, that´s my real name

    Thanks Uwe, if you would also make the snapshots of all the instruments like Bassis Trad Chellos Mod and Trad, Violas Mod and Trad and Violins Mod and Trad it would be a whole library of snapshots. If you can make the changes:

    Vilocity should be controled via Mod Weel and Articulations via Key Switches.

    Thanks Dude!

    The basses snapshots are not working. In fact, I'm not able to play them. Ther is no sound!

    Wow! The Smart Voice Split and Smart Chords are working perfectly!
