I am new to orchestral scoring but not writing or recording. As I look at the various posts here of the different libraries that are available, I can't help wonder how they handle the timbre (tone quality) changes when holding one note and doing a large crescendo.
How do they handle things like this without a sample at "ppp" dynamic, once it gets to "fff"...just sounding like "ppp" but a lot louder? Do they generally have some kind of mechanism that switches the sample as it moves across the dynamic range?
Thanks a lot, and sorry if this is obvious,
