    Master Class Strings Tutorial by Danielle Davis

    As a gift to the Garritan Personal Orchestra community here is the first in a series of Master Class tutorials by Danielle Davis.

    This first tutorial is on how to optimize your string writing when using GPO. This tutorial is a godsend for people who need help optimizing their string parts to achieve realism and the nuances that one takes for granted when sequencing string lines. Danielle is one of our most gifted and well-loved composers/arrangers and it has been said many times that we wished we knew how she achieved the sounds she does, well here is a guide showing how she does it. There are some wonderful tips and tricks in these tutorials that will become invaluable to you as you put together your midi orchestrations.

    Thanks so much to Danielle for taking the time to give us these tips. Included in these tutorials are pictures of sequences, midi files, as well as audio examples. They are wonderfully written and are concise and to the point but thoroughly explain her process. Again, this is just part one in a series of excellently written and put together tutorials by Danielle. Other tutorials in the Master Class series will be made available soon and will cover such instruments as percussion and brass.

    So without further ado:

    Again, thank you Danielle for being so kind as to share your techniques with the community. I look forward to the rest of these Master Class tutorials. With these wonderful tools we can all hope to achieve your level of performance, so you better watch out!

    Thank you very much to Danille (& Joshep) for taking to time to share some of your insights and experience with us.

    I got Gpo for Xmas and have spent all my spare time in the last few days starting to explore this wonderful collection of instruments. There is so much to learn - but having all the tutorials will speed up the process.

    A Happy New Year to all!
    As in music - so in life!

    Thank you so much Danielle. If this is as good as your previous stuff and your instructive posts I very much look forward to reading it.

    gratefully received..

    PS I just went through this Danielle, and I have to say the presentation is superb with the screen dumps, midi files, mp3's etc. A superb training format indeed. I don't know if you are insanely generous or they are looking after you, but thanks a lot either way!!!

    What a nice way to start the New Year. This tutorial is remarkable and will be a tremendous benefit to those wanting to improve their string renditions. If there are ways for improvement, let us know.

    Soon we will post the second Master Class in the series which will deal with the GPO Brass instruments.

    Thanks you Danielle for sharing your knowledge and techniques with us.
