I have been kind of disappointed in the sound of the string section patches--in particular the Violins. To my ear there is too much modulation which I presume is the vibrato. I've tried various techniques suggested in the forum such as reverb, equalization, layering solo players etc with very little success.
Tonight, I decided to listen to some of the demos which led me to purchase GPO to see if I was just not listening close enough. In listening to the first audition demo of the violin section, I hear very little of the vibrato that I am experiencing when I play the melody myself with GPO. In particular, the first three notes of the melody sound silky smooth in the demo, but on my system, the modulaton is very noticeable (like the violins are quietly gargling!)
So. What is the secret? Was the audition demo really done with the section string patch that is in GPO? Is it ensemble building? Is there some post processing recipe that makes this great sound?
Thanks for reading.
