I have not been happy with the playback of large ensemble pieces by the audio tools in the program Finale. This is my first attempt to export sound files to Logic Pro and work with them there. I like the results much better than what I was getting before but would appreciate some help with these things.
How can I make percussion and other instruments sound like they are near the back of the stage? How can I get better control of the loud glockenspiel and chimes passages? Some of the loud pitches are too loud but if I fade them back other notes tend to be too soft.
The piece is for concert band but uses instruments primarily from GPO 4 and some sounds from Garritan instruments for Finale.
Comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
