After having GPO for just over a week, I decided to begin work on a new piece. However, I came across an issue today. I really need some advice on how to achieve a big "punchy" brass stab. Listen to this so far and you'll see what I mean.
At 1:43, there is a big chord played by the brass section (3 F horns, 2 trumpets and 1 trombone) but it just doesn't seem to have the punch I want on the beat. I have tried using max velocity and mod on all brass instruments at that point but it still doesn't quite give the desired effect.
I would appreciate any advice anyone can give.
