We have been talking about the apparent inherent weakness of the string section in many libraries. GPO, unfortunately is not immune from criticism in that regard. Ah, there is always room for improvement.
I thought I'd post a recent rendering of a not-so-recent piece I composed, for strings.
I attempted to mitigate some of the "string issues" by layering a few solo strings into the mix. I think the sound came out not too bad, considering. (considering I don't use a DAW!)
Here is the recording of the work in question: "Scherzo pour cordes" (scherzo for strings), which will be the finale of a projected serenade for strings.
I can't say I'm 100% happy with the rendering. To my ear, it still sounds synthy. Although I'm quite happy with the composition itself!
