OK, I am 100% sure this has been addressed here somewhere in the forum, but for the life of me, I can never find threads with the answers!
So if this has been answered - just point me to the thread please.
Maybe Tom Hopkins can help me understand.
Why do the trombones only have a whole tone pitch bend available to them? Couldn't a perfect 4th be programmed into them? Or does that degrade the sample too much? I had a solo trombone part in my ballet which made constant use of the slide of a 4th. I tried to do a software work-around, but have had no luck, so I just used the original trombone solo (Roland MT-200's, trombone didn't sound that bad at all in the first place - but wanted it to be all GPO) and incorporated it into the piece. (I recently re-orchestrated a ballet I wrote 10 years ago which is being re-performed this year and I reworked it with GPO)
I just was curious about this because the slide is a very peculiar characteristic of the trombone and wanted to know why this wasn't incorporated. Is it because of NI? or was it just a decision for the overall integrity of the sample's sound?
Thanks in advance - especially for your patience!
