  • Several Chamber Strings Questions

    Hi,

    Some general questions I've been saving up. Sorry for the length. I thought it would look even weirder if I posted six separate posts.

    As always, many thanks,

    ---JC


  • In the order asked:

     1.  Use the same violin patch but alter the tunning a bit or use pitch bend if the 1st and 2nd Violins are playing same notes.  Also, I usually use the the German seating so my 2nd violins are panned to the left. 

    2.  Divisi is a bit of an issue with VSL.  I rarely ever use it in my music when it comes to strings so maybe somebody else can chime in on that.

    3.  Do you have a DAW or do you strictly use notation software.  Most people write their music in notation software then export as a MIDI file into a DAW software where you can manipulate the notes more freely.

    4.  Try tapping the filter fader down a bit.

    5.  Sorry I can't help you with this one.  I only layer VSL with VSL.

    6.  I don't own VI Pro either but from what I understand you can do things like time stretching where you can control the length of a cresendo for example or create slower portamentos.

    Hope this helps.


  • Thanks for your reply. I'm using Cubase/Nuendo with the built-in Scoring. I realise that Sibelius is more sophisticated but I need to incorporate some pre-recorded tracks and video along with the MIDI... so this is a good way to work (well, it would be if I could get the notation to look reasonable without making the mock-up sound dreadful.)

    Change the display quantization as needed in the Score Editor. No need to shift the MIDI. I also think that MIDI offsets in the Project are not reflected in the Score Editor, so this might be something else you could try.
