๐Ÿ’™Universal Matching

Universal Matching

Universal Matching allows you to drag a MIDI region from one library to another, and, in theory, the articulation used will instantly work and match. Let me explain what in theory means: So far, weโ€™ve done this exclusively for articulations weโ€™ve defined as โ€œthe most importantโ€ ones:

Sustain, Legato, Marcato, Tremolo, Spiccato, Staccato, Tenuto, Pizzicato, Trill Minor/Major

This is because two libraries are rarely equipped with precisely the same articulations, and the above is a good representation of whatโ€™s most likely available. In other words, there is no point in a โ€œmatch festโ€ for more exotic arts.

Disclaimer: It will not work perfectly in every situation, but it works surprisingly well in many and will save you a ton of time. We found that, in many situations, composers move a region to another library to see if it sounds suits them better. You will undoubtedly have to adjust things, but Universal IDs will help you to make an instant and informed decision.
