I've been spending a lot of time with two seconds of music on what I thought would be a simple beginner's exercise.
I have a very short mp3 with a few bars of Strauss's Zarathustra (violins and violas) and there is one single bar that I've been trying to replicate with GPO (or Synful). I have the midi file for that bar, which corresponds to seconds 0:08 - 0:10 in the mp3.
I was able to get a sound quite realistic on its own, using several solo strings for each of the staves and changing CC7 (main volume) and note lengths for each player. However, when compared to the mp3, it's not there yet. Does anyone have some time to listen to those two seconds and let me know if it's even possible to get a sound similar to the recording? I could really use some peace of mind and know if it's either my lack of knowledge or if it's simply impossible.
Thanks a lot
