    Question Clarinet plyrs 1,2&3 sound fuzzy.

    Why would the clarinet plrs 1,2, & 3 sound as if they were recorded through a fuzz tone? I know they were not, and I realize it most likely is something to do with my settings. However, neither the solo clarinets sound fuzzy. They are as crystal clear is Niagara Falls on a bright sunny day (which only come once or twice a year here)
    So, can ya tell me huh huh huh? Can ya, huh? I know, those players probably didn't clean their instruments before the recording session, right? You know, all that water sitting in the tubes then they start playing and ya get that fuzzy sound.

    Styxx,

    As with all derived "plr" instruments, the solo and corresponding "plr" instruments use the same sample pool. The solo instruments sound different because they are, for the most part, chromatically sampled. The "plr" instruments use fewer samples in comparison. Each of the three derived "plr" instruments uses a different group of samples but only one third the total number contained in the solo instrument. Since there are fewer samples in the "plr" instruments each sample is stretched (transposed) to cover more notes. That's why they sound different from one another and from the solo instrument. I've just checked the programming of the clarinets and everything appears to be functioning as intended.

    Gotcha Tom! Do you think I may be pushing the gain too much on the samples? They sounded a little weak in presence to me so I upped the volume on each one. Maybe I distorted the sample rate or something? Forgive me, for I know not what to do.
