Pitch Bend for Chamber Strings
Has anyone been able to setup pitch bend for SCS? There's a tutorial online, but it involves clicking the wrench icon in Kontakt, which appears to have disappeared with the 6.2 update.
This is a major limitation for SCS right now, and I would love a fix today for a project, if possible. Thanks!
are you going for a stylised sound?
I don't have that library; but i'd try doing it in the daw with automation0
Ah....could you print the region to audio and automate a pitch shifter?
cheap sounding workaround, i know!
Like i mentioned, i have no knowledge of that library...but if the velocities are low enough could you gliss down?
I still use Kontakt 5. By the time 7 comes out, 6 will be stable so i'll upgrade then! 😁0
Do you have a link to the video? I'd be interested in watching it.
By default some patches are locked wrench wise across all versions of Kontakt. Legato ones, or patches with legato in, are fundamentally always locked. With that, it would be worth seeing if loading an individual long articulation provides the same issue...0
I never understood why pitch bend isn't assigned on these type of libraries. I understand it may not sound great all the time, but then you just don't use the pitch bend. It's not like the pitch wheel is being used for anything else.0
I'll see if I can find it, but I think Oliver had a lot of great sounding pitch movement in one of his sample pieces—alternative solo strings maybe—that had me wondering how he did it.
If I find, I'll link, and with a little luck can get him or one of the others to tell us his technique.0
Paul Thomson describes the approach here: https://youtu.be/2Xwy0LYXN4k0
The way paul thomson describes doesn't work when the patch is locked, as all the legato patches.
I found rather cumbersome solution, but it works! First make you part with a legato patch. Render to a new track. Put the rendered part into a simple sampler (I use Studio One, it has a sampler called 'SampleOne'). In this sampler you can pitch bend any sample. The sampled part now plays at C3. Make a long note, as long as the part. This note will play the whole part now. Now you can record or edit you pitch bend.0
