3 French Horns (hens?) two turtle doves?
I was reading through some of the major libraries instruments and noticed, for example, a sample called French Horns Ensemble, obviously, an ensemble of French Horns.
I thought about how these same libraries (i.e. VSL, Garr, EWQL, etc), offer instruments solo so one can build their own (layered) ensemble, which leads me to this….
If one where to set out to build a (3) French horn ensemble, what school of thought would one take?
For example:, if it where audio, (not midi), one could create three identical tracks and shift one a few milliseconds ahead, and another a few milliseconds behind, thus giving a “thickening” effect to a horn section. This I suppose could be done (with samples/midi) by also shifting the info ahead and behind. (best way to do this?)…..
Then of course, is the school of thought to create an instrument/score, duplicate, then transpose the information, a P4 (perfect 4th) or Octave (+12 or –12 in midi)? Or is it perhaps to do a little of both, duplicating the track, transposing, as well as the shifting of notes.
Just a few thoughts…..
