    Solo String Tremolo with Sibelius4.1 and GPO

    Hi I'm very new to both GPO and Sibelius and have a question. I recently scored a piece of mine for english horn and strings which at one part uses a lot of single note string tremolo. When I play it back I get a nice unmeasured tremolo string sound. Because the piece is so intimate I figured that a full complement of strings might be to much and changed my instrumentation to just solo string quintet. All sounds great until the tremolos when instead of a nice unmeasured tremolo I get a measured machine-gun like tremolo. Do the solo string ks instruments have a tremolo sample? I know there is a separate sample for VL1, Vl2 etc tremolo but don't see one for the solos? . If there is no tremolo sample for the solo strings is it possible in Sibelius 4.1 to write a midi command into the score to have the separate tremolo samples for VL1 etc play and then return to the solo arrangement. Can you and if you can how do you add a midi command to a score in Sibelius to make the switches ? Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.

    before going any further, "tremolo".
