I read the ProRec.com article by Bruce Richardson (linked below) regarding getting the most out of orchestral sample libraries. I appreciate the notion that MIDI output is not proper finished material, but I don\'t see the difference between mixing the exported Giga .wavs in Logic with judicious use of appropriate plugins (stereo imaging, reverb, EQ, etc.) and \"editing\" in say, Sound Forge...
I don\'t understand what is implied by \"editing\" in that post-MIDI-editing sense, and how that can enhance the performance realism of each section/instrument. Could anyone please provide some specific examples of what extended audio editing methods are applied to improve the core performance?
\"GET THESE TRACKS INTO AN AUDIO EDITOR!!... The MIDI output, even after careful editing of your sequences, should be considered equivalent to rough, unmixed tracks. Remember, these are samples, and no matter how good your programming is, you\'ll need to do LOTS of editing to breathe life into the track...\"
