  • Chamber Strings: How to do a long crescendo?

    Hi,

    I dunno if this fits more in the 'Orchestration' area or what but...

    Is there a way to do a crescendo that carries over several -bars- at a slow tempo? I'm trying to get these sort of 'Ligeti' kind of 'cloud swell' effects. I gave it a shot with MIDI volume and CC11 but it's not all that great.

    TIA,

    ---JC


  • Hello JC

    Try to use the X-Fade function instead of CC11.

    Either you draw the crescendo curve with the mouse or you record it with a midi-controller.

    In the end you also can support the dynamic a bit within the audio mixer by drawing the same curves (volume / track automation)

    As an example: X-Fade with Bach à la "James Last"

    A lot of success

  • Thanks. That suite is the sort of effect I'm looking for. I'll give it a shot.
