  • Bb Clarinet 2 Instrument Profile

    I just realized that there is just one instrument profile in MIR Pro for both the BbClarinet 1 and 2. Due to the fact that both instruments have different output levels (the BbClarinet 2 being approx. 10dB softer then the first) I'd like to know to which value I should set the output level of the 2nd BbClarinet to get the most realistic results. 

    Will there be an update on the instrument profile for the BbClarinet 2? 

    Thanks!

    You're right, that's an oversight.  🤔  Thanks for the hint!

    Working on all those MIRx settings I didn't realize somehow that the "Clarinet Bb 2" I use for MIRx is actually just the "virtual" 2nd, not the actual second instrument. We will fix this, of course, but please be patient - it will take some time. 

    As a workaround, please use the Instrument Profile Clarinet Bb I, without any specific Character Presets (i.e. "Pre EQ" in MIRx), and raise the volume manually by about 6 dB. When using MIRx settings, I'd suggest to start with the Preset "Orchestra 2"  (i.e. the virtual clone). 

    Sorry for the confusion!

    Thanks again for your patience,

  • Good catch Michael and a thanks to Dietz, I bought Clarinet Bb 2 recently and was wondering.. BTW, could there actually be two profiles one of an actual second clarinet and another one for a "virtual second"? Thanks again everyone.
