I am writing and composing and my strings sounds ok, but I cannot for the life of me achieve that sweeping "connected" playing style that you hear in a lush sweeping string section.
I have GPO and I also bought Kontakt 3. I have the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra Opus 1 & 2. With these instruments the Legato, Portamento and slide function is build in options that you can choose, but it just does not sound right when I play it.
When the strings transition from one note or chord too the next, how can i get it to sound more like a sliding up or down that is connected rather disconnected parts ?
Do you have to write this in by hand after you recorded a string section, or is this is setting in GPO or elsewhere which you set, and then when you play it will transition from one note to the next in a sweeping connected style ?
If by hand - how ? And if with settings.. then where ?
I would appreciate any help. I have read the portamento/string tutorial, but it does not answer my question.
Thanks guys !!!
