Thanks, Giga. I hadn't considered a 50's/60's style... must be what slipped in through the subconscious while putting this thing together.
Ray, I am using Finale 2006 with the full GPO product, using the package ambience of Concert Hall 1 (dry at 1.5dB, wet at -1.5dB). The ambience settings have been one of those parts of GPO I have never gotten the hang of ( ). Still, I thought I was close. Any suggestions? As far as the rest, I plugged in for the low brass:
Tbone Overlay AG (only used in the unison lines); Tenor Tbone Play1 KS; Bass Trombone 1 Solo; and Tuba 1 Solo. (The horns and trumpets were done the same way, using the overlay only for unison lines.)For the strings I simply loaded:
Vlns 1 KS; Vlns 2 KS; Violas KS; Cellos KS; and Basses KS.I'm sure there is a better way for me to arrange the samples, but I haven't really figured out a better way to do this yet.
