Hi,

I'm writing a piece for concert band, with a repeat section, horns are playing only 2nd time.
Is it possible to play it that way ?
I created a text expression "2nd time only" but I'd like that playback would understand it !

Thanks for your help
Alex

It can be done with custom expressions that zero out the volume on the first pass and change it on the second pass. One of those playback expressions will likely be hidden, and the other playback expression will be assigned to the "2nd time only" expression. How you zero the volume may depend whether you are playing via MIDI or via VST's (like Aria).

I have found with VST sounds, the sure-fire method is to change the channel to an unused channel for the tacet pass, then back to the original channel for the repeat. Otherwise, success may be elusive with Velocity or Volume changes.

P.S.: This file demonstrates the "change Channel" approach. The visible expression is for the second time. The hidden expression is for the first time.

I knew there was a better way but could not recall it. Thanks, Zuill.

It works with that solution, but what if I have two banks of Garritan ?
Example : Horns and Euphonium play 2nd time only, but Horns are channel 14 of first bank and euphonium are channel 1 of second bank.

The bank is irrelevant. Just don't forget that bank 2 starts at #17.
