I spent 3 hours experimenting with the repetition mode in the performance tool, I tried cello's, violas, violins and the 4 FR. Horn samples. the tempo was 165 playing 8th note triplets in 6 note phrases and then modulating the note, I was cranking the tempo of the sequence well above the vls performance set tempos, for the most part it works pretty well, especially compared to what it would sound like without the performance set & tool. but the notes seem a bit inconsistent at times, some notes are lagging or a bit unsmooth, I tried some keyswitching to shut of the 1st note in the sequence after the 1st cycle of the '9 note performance preset' passed. I even tried the chain mode and reconfiguring the matrix to put in more variation. I find it hard to get the violins, violas, cello's to sync up together and to sound together with oneanother. I did try pulling back the midi performances earlier against my sequencers metronome click, but it still isn't great... Am I missing something here to smooth things out? am I expecting too much?
...also, the sections I experimented with didn't seem too responsive to making accents on certain notes to emphasize a particular rhythm via midi velocity, just didn't seem too dynamic, any ideas to accomplish this?
thanks in advance
