    Red face GPO Strings

    I am using the version of Overture that came with GPO to create a musical score which I have exported as a MIDI file. I then imported that file into Logic, and am using GPO string sections as my plug-ins--my goal is to have a string orchestra consisting of Violin (1,2) Viola and Cello sections. My main problem is this: I can't find a string plug-in that will play the composition correctly. I have a broad range of note values--from very fast notes to slow ones. When I use, for example, the Short Bow GPO plug in, the playing is anything but legato during sections that are to be sustained! And if I use a more sustained GPO plug-in like Sus+Short, I get a massive increase in volume during the playing of longer notes, and yet any short notes playing at the same time are much softer. How can I best accomplish connecting the notes into a smooth legato string orchestra which sounds natural without unnatural and grandiose volume changes??

    Well don't forget that you have control over the volume swells of the passages with the mod-wheel control. Also in Overture, if you want legato passages you need to put a slur over the passage, which should activate the sustain pedal (since legato is controlled by the sustain pedal midi control.)

    How do you use the mod-wheel control with something you've created in Overture?

    In your sequencer you can draw in the mod wheel data using CC1.
    I don't use Logic, so I don't know the specific steps, but I'm sure you should find it in your midi editing "toolbox."
