I’ve been experimenting with GPO a little but I’ve only been able to squeeze in about an hour a day to play with it. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] Sometimes not even that. (2 weeks ago I didn\'t play/make any music on my computer) Anyway, Since I haven\'t had time to find out for myself I have a few questions about building sections.
I know you shouldn’t use the solo instrument with the ensembles built with that instrument because of phasing problems. Is this only if it is exactly doubling the line (i.e., copied the midi data to another track)? If I play the parts in manually without quantizing, different velocities, different settings for VAR1 and VAR2 (yielding slightly different pitches and filter setting), etc would I still have phasing problems? Would it maybe be worse? I know this is in the manual, but the wording was such that it seemed to imply it was only a problem if the parts were exactly the same. Maybe I’m taking this “exactness” too literally.
On a similar subject I’m wondering about the use of the exact same instrument. I know I can use violin1-ensamble1 for both my first and second violins (since the notes will be different) but how about doubling that instrument on the first violins? It seems like it should cause phasing problems, but does it? (I am, of course, talking different instances of the same sound.)
I have other questions, but I’ll save them for a rainy day. Actually, with the weather we’ve had on the East Coast, I’ll save it for a sunny day – we should have one by August, I’m sure.
