Exploring Auto Rhythm Tool in AudioBro's LA Scoring Strings
The Auto Rhythm Tool aka A.R.T., is the engine behind all short articulations in AudioBro’s LA Scoring Strings (LASS). These include piccato, staccato, pizzicato. This video tutorial gives you an introduction to LASS A.R.T.
By simply holding down the sustain pedal, you activate A.R.T. This allows you to play rhythmic patterns with unprecedented control and ease in synchronization… and it’s really fun!!
Sometimes it’s very hard to play detailed accents and rhythms on weighted keyboards even at slow tempos… trying to do it at fast tempos can seem like a lost cause. This is where A.R.T. really shines. By taking a few minutes to learn A.R.T.’s features, you’ll dramatically improve the control you have over all your short articulations.
The basic CC performance assignments are:
CC1 Controls the duration of the articulations. This is very important at faster tempos or rapid repetitions where you don’t want the “sample buildup” sound. When CC1 is at 0, the release of the note is unaffected. As you raise CC1, you are shortening the release of the note.
CC7 Controls the master volume of the patch.
CC11 Adds one more level of volume control for added flexibility.
CC111 (default) Allows you to control the Velocity Attenuator.
CC64 (Sustain Pedal) activates A.r.T.
Until next time…now go make some music.
