I searched the archives, assuming this issue has already been discussed, but I can\'t seem to find any information.
When sustaining, all of my solo strad patches noticeably stop and reattack the note every 3-4 seconds.
I assume this is an intentional effort to simulate back and forth bowing (otherwise it\'s a glitch, and I can\'t imagine such a glaring one would have slipped through the cracks). But none of the other solo violins have this, and I know that any decent violin player can switch from up/down bows in a sustain almost imperceptibly. (Besides, bowing changes depend on the volume/attack of the note, whereas it occurs mechanically in these patches, regardless of velocity/mod.
Any comments on this? To me, the strad sounds are the best of the solo strings, but this makes them far less usable.
