I am making my first steps onto synphonic productions with tis library (Gold XP) and i have problems (guess what) with good sounding strings. I know these are the most difficult part to get satisfied with but i´d really to know if there´s any other way i havent figured out from some more advanced users.
First, i cant automate attacks and releases. No way to assign a CC and even standard VST automation doesnt work. Not possible at all?
Then its very, very difficult to get right legato times. I know maybe layering some patches and selectively using this or that but i guess that would take only a Multi for a single melody line. Are you really working like that?
The reverb. Sooo many reverb. Its too easy to get a muddy mix at the end, dont you think? How do you manage that? I thought expanding the signal individually (making the reverb lower) but that should lead to a complete disaster i guess. Layering solo instruments without reverbs from other libraries and reducing the level from the EWQL?
About the close position mic..it would be great if we got the dry instrument, so it doesnt affect the distance if you pan left or right (at least thats what i understood in the manual) but then if you take a C patch and move the pan at the opposite to where its placed originally, you get this feeling that you are staying more with the reverb than with the instrument itself. Again...are you mixing libraries to, lets say put 2nd violinson top right?
I am very happy to have joined this forum finally. Looks like a really great place.
Thanks in advance!
