Google+ Twitter LinkedIn Facebook Pinterest Telegram × RapidComposer Articulations (Full Edition Only) Articulations specify how individual notes are to be performed within a phrase or passage. Articulations are described in an editable text file with .rcCTRL extension in one of these locations: Windows: C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\RapidComposer\DB OS X: ~\Documents\RapidComposerV2\DB Each library or virtual instrument requires such an .rcCTRL file that defines the possible articulations, arranged in groups. An articulation can be a key-switch or a controller value change or both. It can be assigned to a phrase, or individual phrase notes, or even a track can have its default articulation. E.g. if you open “Garritan Personal Orchestra 4.rcCTRL” you’ll see that there are articulations with just key-switch or controller change or with both as in group=“GPOSoloStrings”; articulation=“Legato”; keyswitch=“C-1”; ctrl=68; ctrlval=127; Explanation: “group”: articulation group “articulation”: articulation name “keyswitch” (optional): specify keyswitch note as note name (C4=MIDI note 60) or MIDI note number (0-127) “ctrl” (together with “ctrlval”, optional): MIDI controller number (0-127) “ctrlval” (together with “ctrl”, optional): MIDI controller value (0-127) The author will gladly help to create an articulations definition file, assuming there is a specification.
