CSS vs. Berlin Strings

Runs on CSS are meant to be played using the Marcato Patch. If you use Marcato + Spicc, CC1 will determine how much of the trill-based sample for runs you get, and velocity will determine how much of note attack per individual note you get.

You get the best results with the combination of two.

i own both libraries and absolutely love them to death, however did a small project this week, and found that, either i was doing something wrong, or both are completely unlayerable-unmixable. Theres a slight diference in tuning of a few hz that just bloody destroys my brains, i was essencially using CSS for bass and celli nad one set of violas and berlin for the rest upwards, and it was face scratching..

edit: in case i didnt explain it well,, i was creating an ensemble using both libraries at the wsame time, and feçt like they were tuned in a diferent way

Great to know. Could somebody make a demonstration of that, pls? :)

We are. It's the exact same principle.

Also, check out the CSS manual.
I have CS2 but I want to hear how it sounds in CSS. What I heard in the official walkthrough did not sound anything near as good as CS2, that's why I'm asking.

Where's the CSS manual, was trying to google it but without success.
