I'm attempting to create an orchestral sample library, and I came up with an idea for the strings. To my knowledge, I haven't seen this idea anywhere (correct me if I'm wrong).
For the strings, I was thinking that it would add a lot more realism and control to have notes all sampled on different strings. Take the cello, for instance. Most cellos start down on open C, go up to about the A above it on the C string, then switch to the G string. If the open C started on C2 (C4 being middle C), then samples could go up chromatically to F3, then on G3, open G would start and go up from there, sounding an octave below the note being played. Then the D string would kick in at D5 and the A string at A6.
Since I haven't seen this idea anywhere else, I was wondering if it wasn't used for a reason, and for what reason.
Is this a good idea?
