    Some strange effects

    By accident I did the following:

    I had two voices - all notes were the same - on one staff for the muted Trumpets. Played them in Sonar. Don't know what happened, but it sounded like some plastic children's trumpet from the local Toys'r'Us. Try it, you get a very, very strange (detuned) effect. Maybe this happens also for other monophonic instruments, don't know.

    I think this is called "phasing" where each voice cancels the other out. But don't depend on me - let the tech heads decide!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Phasing it is indeed, but don't let it faze you.

    hehehe, yup, that is a strange sound indeed, Raymond. Try it with Any of the instruments - identical instruments playing the same note at exactly the same time, and you'll get some peculiar sounding phasing results. Hence the warning in the Garritan manuals to not use instruments or the Player versions of them simultaneously.

    Possibly useful in Some pieces - like next year's Halloween contest!
