It uses mostly legato samples with a few other articulations that are available in the VISE (staccato, legato, sustain, and sforzando samples). I wish I had more articulations. (Trills and grace notes would be nice.)
Please give it a listen. I'd like to hear your comments.
I really like that! I could listen to wind band music all day. I've worn out a couple of Hindemith CDs that way.
You captured the character of the trio extremely authentically in the silky writing. The performance is great. Even the fast staccatos sound pretty good - tricky to get them right with the limited articulations in SE.
Reverb and spatials are great. What is it?
The only bit of advice I might offer is to roll off the end of the long held sustained notes just a little bit. You could use the expression control for that. It would be quite a tedious editing job for a very subtle effect, but it's worth it, IMO. It's a pity SE doesn't come with dynamic patches like pfp, dim/cresc etc. I would have expected some to be included in SE Plus, but no.
Really nice performance!
Its beeen just ten days, since I started to explore SE (with all extensions)
I was impressed by how easy it is to make it work. I did a few arrangements which sound already good without extensive tweaking. However, one always desires more articulations. I felt that anything fast played by strings is a bit of a problem. The legato is intended for up to medium speed. If anybody has found some workaround for that, I would be gratefull to learn about it. On July, 15th, VSL will announce some new upgrade-path for SE. I find it quite a big jump from SE to the cube versions. The quality is all there, but it should cost a little less than a new car.
I used one instance of Altiverb (a scoring stage setting) and I panned the bass clarinet and and bassoon left and right with the flute just off center. I used the power panning in Vienna Ensemble 2.
I held back on the reverb.
I would like to get the whole wood wind set, but I'm not sure what to do. The two volumes of woodwinds have a lot of stuff that I would not use. When VSL makes their individual instruments downloadable, I wonder if I'll be able to access it with my dsl connection. I wonder if we'll be able to download every articulation that is available for the instruments on the dvd sets.
