As most of you know, sometimes samples are not enough! Sometimes you need to bring out certain articulations that are simply not available in our current libraries or you are looking for a different color, but with certain familiar articulations (up/down bow, tongueing, etc.)
My question is: In synthesizer terms, what is the difference between an upbow and a downbow? Is it something that can be explained in simple sound design terms?
This morning I was listening to Switched on Bach again, and it is incredible the subtlety and nuance Wendy Carlos was able to get out of a late '60s Moog.
I'd appreciate any tips you may have
