Working with samples over the years, I've discovered that, to some degree, learning to play a library can be as laborious as learning an actual instrument (okay, not quite, but you get the idea). The more I work with Audio Modeling's solo violin, the better it sounds (to my ears anyway). I still have a ways to go, but I think I'm getting better at making it sound "natural." EDIT: AM Violin Test-003 is a new version with the EQ/Comp gaffs removed. I had foolishly posted the first version with my headphone correction filter and another EQ/Comp still on the master bus, which is why the first version had an odd tonal quality. EDIT 2: Changed the SWAM impulse to Electric Violin and added a Stradivarius impulse I bought just to test what an external impulse would do.
