If I remember correctly, keyswitching refers to the ability to switch
between articulations by pressing and releasing certain notes like C0 or D1
on your keyboard, notes that usually aren't in the playable range of an

Hi Annabelle.


Fancy stuff like that is going to be very difficult to duplicate in sampled
instruments unless they have functionality like key switching to allow for
these playing techniques.


The only person I've heard on here do it properly and reasonably
convincingly is STEVE w.


I say reasonably convincingly rather than very convincingly because he had
the raw samples to work with and created those types of musical tricks based
on mathematics and using Sonar's step sequencer to recreate them.


I certainly couldn't do it, or even know where to begin.

Hi, it's Annabelle.

I've notated a score in Sibelius where I've incorporated things like Trils,
scoops, falls, and other jazzy styles. I'm wondering, How do I get these to
play back smoothly in Garritan Jazz And Big Band? For some reason, the
scoops and falls don't play, and the trills sound a bit unnatural. Since
none of them except the trills play back in Sibelius, I've saved the file as
a MIDI Format 1, and imported it into Sonar. Is there something I've
forgotten, that I'm supposed to do in the process?
