Ah yes I hate switching articulations using VSTs. I use the Ample guitar VSTs and it’s pretty painful at times. I could imagine this working in a similar way to Drum Machine where note lanes get called what the device/pad is called, but with the name of the articulation instead.
The issue I can forsee with this is that Bitwig would need to know which articulations are possible and which keys are used, for any given VST. As far as I know the VST SDK doesn’t provide this kind of communication between host and plugin. Would you see it more as a user-definable thing? Or perhaps detection of the plugin and matching with pre-defined articulation tables?
@pier That makes sense, thank you. I’ve made some edits to the OP to put some of the additional information you provided into the template. I also reworded some of it so that it refers also to non-orchestral plugins which also use articulations. Lets give this some time for more discussions before moving to #features
