Default Information box on Articulations

We need an information box on all articulations. Not a info box we fill in. One that you provide information about the patches. How the different controllers behave. Information about the instrument and its articulations. What is LT2 vs LT3? AT for auto tempo etc... Your current code is confusing and sometimes we even have to drag the scroll bar to see the full title of the patch. Talk about not being user friendly!

For example, in Hollywood Strings, CC1 sometimes is crossefade velocity, and on other patches, it's CC11 and CC1 is vibrato.

We need that info on the spot and not have to open the manual every time for a year to memorize them all.

When I first started, I had more time and I learn them all but I still forget. Now that I work full time at composing, if I had never worked for your libraries, I'd find that the learning curve is too long and it would slow me down too much. I would probably have looked elsewhere for more intuitive engines.

+1 This is one area the Vienna and Spitfire guys have a one up. The articulations are just more understandable, and to be honest, consistent. I mean I adore the eastwest sound, everythings there, but a part of me dies inside everytime I have to start mapping out articulations knowing no matter how often I use these libraries my brains just made of the wrong sort of must to get it right without trying to decode the interface and/or rooting through the PDFs

I agree to this suggestion. I think this would be an improvment, not only for beginners!
