VST Expression Maps For HSO

I have loaded the HSO Expression Map from the Steinberg website Violin Solo Combi.
When I open the VST Expression MIDI edit screen, I am presented with 6 articulations.
There appear to be 13 articulations loaded with the patch.
My goal is to use all available articulations.
In my attempt to create my own map, I have access to only 3 dynamics (marcato, accent and Sforzato).
I have seen tutorials where the user is provided the option to use dozens of dynamic articulations.
Although trill HT and trill WT are available in the downloaded Expression Map, I can't find them in the dropdowns.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

When I use HSO, I find it easier to use the Import keyswitches option. This gives you all the articulations for the currently loaded patch. Then I drag the one I want to be the default to the top of the list. Usually a sustain patch. With the first one selected, click the "set remote keys".
Untick "Latch" if you want your keyswitches to be temporary and you should be good to go.

Hi Misohoza,

is there a way to use the sustain pedal in HSO the same way as for any other HS instrument?

Thanks for your kind help
