Folks. I have a problem that's really bugging the hell out of me. I'm playing 2 chords/triads - Fmaj then Aminor. The triads are split between the 1st Violins lush, 2nd violins lush and the violas lush as follows: the violas play the root, 1st violins play the 3rd, and 2nd violins play the 5th notes of each triad. The chords are played as whole notes as a single long sustained down bow (over a single measure) which gradually fades to zero before the next chord is played. I'm realising this with Sonar 3 SE and GPO as a DXi in my sequencer.
The only way I can think of actually achieving the sound I want is to manually draw in the mod wheel data (cc#1) in piano roll view. The first chord (Fmaj) is no problem, it sounds and then fades away to zero just before the end of the chord - great. The mod wheel data looks like a right angle triangle which hits zero just before the end of the measure. The problem is with the second chord. No matter what I try, I can hear a definite increase in volume just as the chord sounds before it is held and begins to fade - in fact it sounds like peeyooooooooo instead of just yooooooo. The way I've drawn the controller data it looks like a skewed triangle going from zero at the start of each note to its full volume (about 96) a couple of ticks in before it begins to gradually fade. This is the best I can get but its not what I want - it sounds AWFULL! if I draw the controller data same as I did for the first chord it sounds even worse.
Any help/tips will be greatly appreciated.
