What is it that you're trying to accomplish? In Notion, you'd have to add it as a VST, which will bypass the playback rules.

Go to the score setup window.

Look in the VST menu and you will find the Event Input Plugin. Add one to your score.

Once added, exit the score setup window. Select the Event Input staff and press Command + I. The instrument dialogue window will appear. You must then assign the Event Input to the MIDI Channel you would like to connect to.

These are the basics. There will soon be a video on the website that gives a tutorial of how to do this, including the most efficient way to set Vienna Ensemble up to handle the Event Inputs.

Hi
The event input has different Plugin ID than the VSL ensemble itself , so you need use that in the rules xml files.

Which file do I edit with this information? I've managed to setup a large VE Pro Instance with over 50 instruments using 4 x Event Inputs but dynamics aren't working nor can I assign instruments to play an octave lower than written e.g. D. Basses.

In general, i love Notion but why does everything have to be so cryptic. I feel like I'm playing Sherlock Holmes to discover how basic things work. Is there a secret handshake that I don't know about that will give me access to this information. Perhaps I need to re-read Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code for an answer.

Please get some basic videos (or white papers) on how this stuff works - particularly custom rules. I've got an honours degree in Electrical Engineering but quite frankly, I can't figure it out. Do I have to enroll in a Ph.D course? Hopefully not because in my life experience I've found an inverse relationship between technical proficiency and marketing prowess.

Hi alexg,

The Double Bass Octave Down question is solved like this:

1. Go to Score Setup
2. Click the Gear Wheel on the Double Bass staff
3. In the Staff Settings dialogue box, click Notation/Tab
4. You will see a Transposition Section in this window. Change Notated C sounds = C One Octave Lower in the three menu options that you see there.

________________________________________________________________

Now to deal with rules:

- Any Instruments you have assigned in your score that are running to Vienna Event Pro Input need to use the Vienna Event Pro ID: 1986359397

- Any Instruments you have assigned in your score that are running to Vienna Ensemble Pro need to use the VE Pro ID:1987274096

You can have multiple sets of rules in one rules folder and the file hierarchy needs to be set like this:

Notice that I have many sets of rules. Many of the actual rules are the same, but the plugin id's are different. Keep your rule files organized and be careful what you edit.

<dynamic-map id="vsld"> Make sure the dynamic map is assigned with "xxxx" matching below
<dynamic dynamic="ppppp" value="0" />
<dynamic dynamic="pppp" value="19" />
<dynamic dynamic="ppp" value="28" />
<dynamic dynamic="pp" value="39" />
<dynamic dynamic="p" value="54" />
<dynamic dynamic="mp" value="63" />
<dynamic dynamic="mf" value="79" />
<dynamic dynamic="f" value="84" />
<dynamic dynamic="ff" value="95" />
<dynamic dynamic="fff" value="103" />
<dynamic dynamic="ffff" value="116" />
<dynamic dynamic="fffff" value="127" />
</dynamic-map>


<plugin id="1986359397"> <!-- Vienna Ensemble Event Pro Input Id -->

<setup>
<velocity-map id="vsld" />"xxxx" HERE
<hairpin-map id="vsld" />"xxxx" And Here
<hairpin-cc value="11" />
</setup>

This setup is working for me. My dynamics and rules playback using the VE Pro Plugin ID and the VE Event Pro Plugin ID. Without looking at exactly what you are doing, it is hard to tell what might be going wrong.

I hope this helps,

I've always wondered that, but never saw it mentioned in any of the Rules downloads...
