Question for the gurus out there. I am working on a song, where, if I play it live, I will run out of hands and keyboard space to play all the parts.
What would be really neat, and I am not sure if Cantabile and a combination of MIDI processing plugins, could do this, is as follows
I am holding down a chord. When I want a little bit of emphasis (whilst playing something else over the chords), press a switch on my FC300 which generates a MIDI event. Cantable catches that, and via some form of magic processing triggers another VST to do a bass wash using the bass note of the chord for the note to play. I.e. the bass note will be taken from the chord, but triggered from the same foot switch regardless of the chord.
Not sure if that is even possible, but thought it worth asking?
I know I could do this with some playing trickery (limit bass note to a certain range), have the sound decay and just retrigger by playing bass note again, but just curious if there are any bright ideas and techniques and pluins that could help
