Before we look at things in more depth, let’s first explore how to play Symphonic Elements STRIIIINGS, as that may be all you need for now.
Let’s go through the various playing modes and how you can use them:
- When you press keys from C#3 upwards, STRIIIINGS will start playing a phrase with the notes you hold on the keyboard. When you release the key(s), playback will stop.
- When you play chords, the integrated chord detection will map the chord you played to an existing chord that’s been recorded with the orchestra.
- Add Bass Notes by pressing keys below C#3.
- MIDI notes below C#2 don’t represent musical keys but select the phrases of your player in real-time. This is a powerful way of making your performance interesting and dynamic.
When using a keyboard, combine left hand (phrase select) and right hand (notes) to build your performance. If you know these things and can switch presets, you know all you need to start producing with Symphonic Elements STRIIIINGS.
*C3 is middle C. The MIDI note number is 60. Some DAWs refer to it as C4.
