    How can I avoid new attacks in the expressive strings?

    Just wondering: is it possible to avoid a new attack and swell with every new note in expressive strings? it doesn't sound naturally to have them on every note.

    This depends on if the library has real legato transitions sampled. I don't believe the library you have has sample legato transitions. Libraries such as Vienna and LASS have real legato transitions sampled.

    Hi, Andrea

    Instruments labeled "expressive" are usually of very limited use. That label usually means there's a slow swell to the sound, which is great for the start of passages, or simple passages which consist of notes that are held for a long time over several measures.

    For most circumstances, you need to seek out the samples that have a normal, fairly quick attack, and no swell, so you can achieve legato passages that sound more natural. Hopefully those samples also have controllable attack, like the strings in GPO do - controlled by the degrees of velocity.
