    Humanization / Accurat playing - difference in Solosists vs Ensembles

    It is generally way more likely for a soloist to not exactly hit the beat in a real orchestra. In ensembles, when you have e.g. 16 Violins playing at once, the imperfect but natural playing evens out. Therefore the rhytmic "peak" of a staccato note is more likely to be exactly on beat. In MIDI...
