What things do i want to fiddle with to get realistic string sounds from Symphonics Orchestra Silver?
How do i make it so strings start normal and then fade to vibrator or trills and stuff like that and change from fast attacks to nice mellow sounds using one intrument - do i do this by creating multis cause i think i've been doing my multis wrong.. when i make a multi i do it with different intruments inside each slot but should multies be for one type of instrument?
thx for any questions answered and please give more tips if u think of any.
1. Silver (basic) has relatively limited variety of different nuances,
this means more effecting/adjusting (both with the sampler and additional plugins) and editing work (and a more modest end result).
2. Creating realistic (if this is your target) arrangements by using
samples of classical instrument is a "state of art", which you
learn only by doing, if you learn... A good advice: KISS (keep it simple),
orchestra behaves differently than a piano keyboard, although your
interface is probably a keyboard.
3. If you have money + capacity in your DAW, buy the Gold Pro upgrade (I would if I had) and maybe some additional library from some other
manufacturer, mix different samples, try to create 3-dimensional
impression by blending different volumes/ambiences.
