    Well done CSeye!
    Looking at your attached image file I'd like to add two minor details (you know probably).
    1.Create a full Instrument Name for Ch1. in the EDITOR "Instrument Names" dialog. This way the Scripter Parameter will be shown as "Ch1. Violins" for example.
    2. Create a new Folder in the Scripter User path, and name it "MY AG" for example. Save your Maps as Scripter Presets in that folder.
    For example, Save As: => MY AG Folder =>"Phylharmonik 2 VIOLINS". This way you can load that Articulation Preset quickly in any Logic project.

    Excellent suggestions.
    #1: Much better!

    It looks like my Articulation names may be too long. Perhaps Pizz is better than Pizzicato.

    Yes, it is a good idea too keep the Articulation names as short abbreviations such as: Stac, Sus, Leg, Pizz, Fp, Sfz, etc.
    This way you will have more horizontal room in the automation view during editing.

    BTW. We are going to implement an INFO "i" button in the Instrument Names dialog. When you click that button the dialog will switch to Text Editor mode, where you can create a short Legend about the Articulation Abbreviations, Instrument Specifics, Multi Instrument setup etc. The INFO button status will be stored in the Maps Preset so you can store that Maps Presets with shown Maps INFO for example. After reading that info you can close it. This will be very useful for the upcoming AG Maps Farm (Maps Sharing Server technology). I.e when you share Maps with the other AG users they or you must know how to use the Maps and what mean the short Articulations (Legend).
