thanks. and btw, i have put up some short samples here of each one:
so you can sort of hear it for yourself. I used the same line from garritan here:
http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/sho ... nstruments
the score reference 7, tchaikovsky 6th symphony 2nd movement, though they are using ensemble strings there.
i may redo this with ensemble strings later if it's worthwhile.
note that i left out the ewql cello, as it was pretty obvious later the way different sound was because it was an ensemble patch
not the best orchestration.. i intentionally left the line very static, all notes are velocity 100, so you can hear any inconsistencies in the phrasing.
also, kontakt factory patches come with reverb on, so I used that. for miroslav, i added some of the internal csr reverb, and for the rest,
i added a little reverb using liquidsonics reverberate, the 'large gentle cathedral' preset with slightly different wet/dry settings per part.
one final note... i didn't include it, but if you have kontakt and the emu factory library CDs, there is a 'stereo cello' patch on the 'standard 2' cd
that i had imported into kontakt and tried too... expecting to show it as a 'how far we have come', but actually it was pretty good! so you
could try that.
