Creating expression maps based on the key switches used in an instrument

You can automatically extract mapping information from your connected VST instruments and convert it into a new expression map. This makes it very easy to set up expression maps for the instruments you often work with.


  1. Load the VST instrument you want to use and assign it to a MIDI or instrument track.
  2. Select the track, open the Expression Map section in the Inspector, and select “Import Key Switches” on the pop-up menu. Note that this menu option will only be available when the loaded program contains key switches.

    The Expression Map Setup window opens.

  3. Make the desired settings for the created map and click the Save button.

    The expression map is saved and can now be loaded via the pop-up menu on the Expression Map section of the Inspector.
