Doing MIDI orchestrations keeps getting more and more complicated (like with Dimension Strings) and at some point, there's gotta be a way to simplify. Too many controllers, lanes, tracks.
I think that's why a lot of guys... even guys who can write really well, fall back on these sample 'construction kits'. It just takes too darned long to input all the necessary stuff.

However, especially when used in conjunction with VSL, some maps have an extensive array of articulations per instrument. I think it would be great having a scrollable expression map in the Key Editor, because I have to re-size my articulations map every time so that I can read the names of each articulation so much, that almost all of my notes are blocked from view.
Splitting my instrument into two midi tracks (and thus two half-sized expression maps) is an option, however, not preferable. Having scrollable expression maps would help a lot, but I'm sure there are other solutions to this, maybe even with colours to simulate a 3D list.
I hope this wasn't mentioned before, I didn't find anything..

Cubase Expression seems to be in its infancy still. I would like them to make the font blacker.
