I love the GPO section violins - and the fact they're nice and bright. Most of the time, this is ideal. BUT, on occasions, the first violins sus/short are too bright and I need a more mellow sound. I've gradually pulled the velocity right back - but they are still too bright and 'in yer face'. Similar comments are being made by Skysaw and others elsewhere here so I know I'm not alone. Sequencer users can tweak the relevant channel with EQ but Finale-users like me can only tweak the final WAV recording which will cut back the top-end of ALL instruments.
Does anyone know how I might copy the existing first violin patch and save it as a more mellow version having rendered it (somehow) with less brilliance / attack? Or could Tom take the existing Violin 1 sus/short and make it available as a more mellow sample so that we have the current bright version, the aggressive version and a soft, mellow version please? Would this require a lot of programming or is it a simple EQ adjustment that could be added to the instrument folder as an update or download?
Or should I wait for GPOA?!
