  • No Apassionata Strings Runs!

    To be honest, I feel that it's a bit unfair not to have "Runs" for the Apassionata Strings Library. I know that this particular libray was created

    for comtemporary use, and runs for the most part aren't used much in contemporary film scoring. And yes, I'm well aware that

    there are "Runs" available in the extended sets of the Orch. Strings I & II libraries.

    But still, it would be nice to have the available choice in correspondence with this particular library, especially with the lush, 20 violin ensemble!!


  • While I understand and appreciate your whish for even more Appassionata-articulations, I'd say to call that "unfair" is maybe ... hm ... unfair. 8-) We didn't do this to offend anybody, but to find a healthy balance between "doable" and "affordable". Thanks for your understanding.

  • since the time we've released our own VI-player, we offer "performance-trills" for all our instruments, which are fast played intervals up and down to achieve fast runs at any higher tempo you need. we decided to go this way, because these patches allow more flexibility for our users regarding tempo and the notes, not only octave runs up and down but any musical line you wish.

     

    all the best, michael

    Interesting...I've never used these as they eat up a lot of memory. Are these performances played faster than the Legato-Fast patches?

    Perf trills are great for playing fast runs and stuff. However, if all you want is a common or garden scale, then judging by the other Collections, recorded runs are better.

    I too would like the same articulations with App Strings as I have with Orchestral Strings, as I tend not to use Orchestral these days.

    they were performed like trills, just a little bit slower, to get very clear transitions between the notes. one bar with halftone 16th's, one bar with wholetone 16th's and so on. there hasn't been a dedicated tempo for each instrument, the musicians played fast runs or something as a training to show, how it should work. so this brought us more or less the basic tempo for the recordings of the performance-trills.

  •  I personally use the scale runs a lot. I can certainly understand the idea of keeping cost lower, however this articualtion is very useful. I have heard film scores that use them. Dick Tracy (Danny Elfman) comes to mind.  The chamber strings do not have them either which is dissapointing. Perhaps a run package could be assembled, filling in the gaps that current collections are lacking.
