I hope this ends up in the right place on the forum, and that I can spit out what I'm trying to ask.
Could anyone point me in the right direction of, or tell me what it might be called/symbol for, the varying pressure that a string player places on the strings with a bow while playing? Does anyone even know what I'm talking about? Would it be called velosity?? I've looked on the internet, but so far haven't found what I'm looking for. Also, is anyone else here, using Overture SE? I seem to be having problems with getting crescendos and decrescendos to work. They will work/change from measure to measure. Say, ff in one measure, and mp in another, but if I try to have a note, or a bunch of measures gradually increase or decrease, I can't make it work. I've tried a bunch of different combinations to no avail. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, or the program doesn't allow for it, even though I can 'stretch' the crescendo symbols. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
