Imagine, all your orchestral sample libraries would feel like one. Structured and laid out in precisely the same way.
So you can focus on your music instead of feeling distracted by technicalities.
🅱️ Art Conductor for Cakewalk is the most complete collection of Articulation Maps available.
Made of over templates for all major libraries including Spitfire, Vienna Symphonic Library, Eastwest, Orchestral Tools, 8dio and Cinematic Instruments.
We release frequent Art Conductor updates featuring additional libraries. This keeps you up-to-date, and you can control your new sample library purchases with the same ease as your existing libraries.
Way of working
All articulation sets are built in the same way. The key switches for the core techniques, which most libraries have in common, are assembled on the lowest octave.
It will take you no time to learn that Spiccato is always on E, independently of what library you’re using.
The remaining key switches follow the natural order within the individual instrument.
This unique universal key switches system lets you control all your libraries with one single Lemur, TouchOSC, or hardware controller template.
Art Conductor templates are built so that, if you use a new instrument, you always start with Long instead of something random.
All articulations are sorted alphabetically. We've streamlined the way the techniques are named across all libraries. For instance Long and Sustain are always called Long. Because both describe the same.
Our Cakewalk maps aren't just imported Expression Maps. Instead, we make extensive use of Cakewalk’s grouping feature. In many cases, all you need to do is to load a single Art Conductor map that contains all info for an entire section.
In Art Conductor, we use colors to further group articulation types together. For instance, all shorts are red. Colors are great tools to maximise overview - in a subtle fashion.
In other words, it would take months to do all this by hand – with the tools available in Cakewalk.
