  • Orchestral Strings ... a great addition to "the rest" ;)

    Hello all, as you can see on my Sgnature below the Orchester Strings (short OS) are my latest purchase. Now I have enough Strings for the Rest of my life ;-D ... VSL if you are looking for a Christmas-present for me ... look below to the Signaturefield ;) First of all: The OS-package in combination with Dimension Strings is just brilliant. The OS-possibilities are even bigger when you mix the different Stringsounds (Ponticello, Muted and Normal in Combination. Great Possibilities, big sound! I was a little bit surprised, that there are no muted Basses. But no Problem, I solve this by doubeling the Chamber Strings 2 Basses + Solo Strings 2 Basses. Now a question: the articulations like Ponticello, Tremolo-Dynamics, Runs etc. ... can you say that this definately won't come for Dimension Strings? Since we all saw how long programming of DS 1 took, a NO would not surprise me, but it is a little hard to match the "bigger articulations-products" with DS. One question to Overdrive: As far as I understand it is recorded effected ... so a use with Amplitube 4 is not possible ... Right? BR Lars

  • Hello Lars, 

    Congrats to getting the Orchestral Strings - glad you like them!

    Regarding additional articulations, I can only say at this point: Never say never. 

    Overdrive is actually great to work with added effects... We used Amplitube like crazy on this one. 

    Best,

  • Doesn't Dimension Strings already have runs with their performance trills?

  • Hmm ... You can of course improvise and create artificial articulations like dynamics by using Vel X Fade or runs by using fast-performance-Samples .... But ponticello-Sound f.ex. can't be faked. Maybe you can create somehow a "sounds like" with an EQ. But it is not the same.

    There are no special recorded run samples. But I don't miss them at all. You can play DS at any speed without a problem. Works with normal legato and performance trills as well. To get the blur effect in higher speeds I made a matrix cell with extreme random detunings in the humanize slots. This matrix cell is selected when playing faster. Sounds beautiful.


  • Hmm I guess for my purposes the performance trills sort of ARE runs.
