Folks, I have recently acquired the Strad (from Gary's great G-Round) and have been playing with it. I had a couple of questions though.
1. When the manual states the key switches of C1, E1, etc., they really are referring to keys that are an octave above C1? It appears as though the key switches are not located in the first octave of notes on a full 88 key keyboard.
2. Do I need to some how apply some EQ or other adjustment in the Kontakt 2 player to make the Strad sound less like a trumpet and more like a violin? Has anyone had this same experience? Any suggestions? I am using an expression pedal, and the Mod wheel provides vibrato, but the sound still isn't as "sweet" as I would like to hear.
Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated, thanks so much in advance!
