Creating a custom articulation map from scratch can take some effort, but it’s a one time procedure that can be used in any project.If you’re using a popular sample library or virtual instrument, chances are that the developer or other users have already created an articulation map, so search online to see if a map is available for download. Remember, Cakewalk can also import Cubase expression maps.If you have to create a map from scratch, first consult the documentation for your virtual instrument or sample library for a list or supported articulations, so you know how to program the articulation map.
1. Right-click in the Articulations pane and select Edit Articulation Maps to open the Articulation Map Editor.
2. In the Articulation Maps in Project section, click the button to create a new articulation map.
3. In the Articulation Groups section, click the button to create a new group.
4. In the Articulations section, click the button to create a new articulation.
In the Generate New MIDI Events section, click the button to create a new MIDI event for the selected articulation.
In the Transform Existing MIDI Events section, click the button to create a new MIDI transform for the selected articulation.
8. If you would like to use the new map in other projects, click the Export button and save the .artmap file in the C:\Cakewalk Content\Cakewalk Core\Articulation Maps folder. This makes the map available in the global Articulation Map Library section.
9. Click OK to save the articulation map in the project and close the Articulation Map Editor.
