    8Dio Intimate Studio Woodwinds

    From my demo you can hear the minimum processing you are looking for. I haven't done anything else other than add a little of reverb on them. Thanks for listening!

    How to Simulate Realistic String Lines

    I am happy to announce the release of the second free article of the Gardini School Blog. In the real world the string is the most important section of the orchestra. More than half of the orchestra is composed by string players and this ensemble is for sure the most used in all kinds of...

    How Articulations Can Improve Realism

    Ok I see now. But this is not about using more articulations to get more realism. The articulations should be conceived in your mind first and then used in the virtual instruments later. It may be a lot of articulations, just some or even a single one. It doesn't matter as long as you can hear...

    How Articulations Can Improve Realism

    I am not sure I understand what you mean but I am sure i am confused now. :) Anyway, I see programming midi as an interpretation of a composition and not the composition itself. As you well said the influence of computers on the composition process has not been good in many ways and I am just...

    Vibrato simulator

    Hi there, I have two nice vst flutes but one of them has more vibrato than the other. Flute 1 has more vibrato and flute 2 has less vibrato. I bounce flute one to audio and apply flex pitch where Logic calculates the vibrato. I don't want the timbre nor anything else. I just want to mimic the...

    Just HOW Important are Extra Microphones?

    Sounds like a open mind. I personally use only one mic and stick with it but having options in the beginning was important to decide which one to use in all future projects.

    The Great Train Race notation question

    16th notes for sure, but the lack of breathing and the multiple notes makes me believe it was not composed for a single flutist and/or was not composed for a real player.

    Sensitive/female-sounding scales or chord progressions?

    No scale will sound like anything until you make a melody or harmony out of it. Keep in mind that the instruments choice and rhythm sometimes are more important than the melody and harmony. Try Lidian mode. It’s a cliche that always works for ludic feelings.

    Developers of Physical Modeling Orchestral Instruments

    AM winds are part of my template and I use them on several occasions but I still wondering if there is any convincing demo from the people that say they sound realistic.

    Alternatives to True Strike ?

    The only substitute for True Strike is True Strike. Unless you are looking for big ensembles True Strike remains as the best sounding of solo orchestral percussion in my opinion. I've never seen a complaint about it.

    This doesn't sound like regular tremolo. Is it?

    Not sure what you guys are hearing. It's normal unmeasured tremolo doubled with clarinet in the middle register and plain violins in the high register. I guess sample libraries, that never have tremolo legato, are deceiving our ears.

    Wallander WIVI

    For a long time WIVI has been my main brass library. Today I use it as a support to some more moderns libraries but I think it remains very useful. The brass mutes are the best. The virtual sound stage sounds awesome and saves you a lot of time that you would have to spend with any other dry...

    VEPro 7 Preorder available with Epic Orchestra 2.0

    Daniele, I think having an independent software that can host instruments and any other plugin is a great advantage by itself. I basically use VEPRO to connect the AU to the DAW but I am not sure if the load speed is better with it because it's been a long time I've been using it and I cannot...

    VEPro 7 Preorder available with Epic Orchestra 2.0

    I would use VEPRO even with one machine. Just the fact that you can switch between projects without the need of unloading and reloading saves you a lot of time.

    Turkish Violin Sample Recommendation?

    I second that. This library sounds really good and flexible. I only have Simulation Strings from the company which I like a lot but I would buy this solo string if I needed a solo Turkish violin.

    Writing knowing you'll throw it away

    I understand that trowing away your hard work may teach you not to be so precious about your creation but I don't get how it can make you a better composer.

    I am not going into comparison with other courses because I don't think it is possible. Scoring Tools MasterClass is far from being the same thing as what the other schools are offering. However, if you think the other schools will teach you, for just few bucks, how to sound like, or even better...

    Valentine's Day Promotion - Scoring Tools MasterClass 701 with more than 80% off

    Not at all. You can’t achieve realism, at least with my approach, without a well balanced template (unit 702) or knowledge of when and how to use samples and synths (unit 701) for example. Everything was structured to flow you to the mindset and workflow that I created to achieve such result. I...

    Does it need to be samples? If it is for solo tuba you may get better results using Sample Modeling or Infinite Brass.

    How do you do vibrato?

    You may got used to use vibrato on velocities but it would be better to have it assigned to any CC that you can continuously control and leave velocity for dynamics on short notes.

    Arché Collection...thoughts?

    Their website is not clear about it or I missed the information. However, the manual shows how to assign the controls to any midi cc via midi learn which makes me believe it is not necessary to have Touché.
