    How to play like a human ?

    Hello,

    I\'m a Halion user. I have \"advanced orchestra Peter Sliedaczek\" vol 1 & 2 (strings ensemble and solo), akai version. Everything I do don\'t seems to be played by a human but by a computer (no legato, etc).
    Can anybody help me ?
    Is there anywhere a tutorial ?

    Thanks
    David

    Yep, I was just being silly. Sorry.

    Okay Sporter, thanks! I know I\'m a newbie and all, which is why I thought maybe I had just over-looked a product I was starting to get excited about, perhaps we should make one, I\'m sure they would sell like hot-cakes... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    The most important problem for me is the legato. I miss it, and I don\'t know the solution.

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">The solution to that is easy, invest in VSL.

    Alan,

    There ARE MIDI violin controllers, if that\'s what you mean. I used to play the violin myself and a few years ago I was looking around for something like that to make sampled string parts more realistic.

    Unfortunately, they were around the £4,000 mark which was (and still is) far out of my range. Maybe there\'s something cheaper now, I don\'t know.

    I\'m sorry I can\'t remember exact model names, but I do remember seeing them advertised with pictures and info.

    Ouch that\'s exactly waht I\'m looking for as 90% of my work is solo string stuff...

    I will google it for a while and post any links I may find in a new thread so we can stop high-jacking this one...

    Thanks!

    I can Imagine Herb Tucmandl exactly asking your question five years ago, David.

    And now we have the answer :

    Enjoy.

    The violin controller is by Zeta, and yes, it IS expensive - look here
    for a post with links.
