The actual script is quite specific to this lib, in that it hardcodes the cc boundaries between dynamic layers and that sort of thing.Is the script only for this library, or can it be applied to other libraries as well?
The total performance patch uses the progressive vibrato long and time machine so vibrato works completely different on that patch. The vibrato is not fully controllable but it’s got more control than the on/off of the other legato patches.I think Spitfire released an update with the total performance patch. the vibrato seems controllable, not about the matter of ON/OFF.
So to answer this ... here's another noodle on the cello, designed to better demonstrate some of the range of nuance the vibrato is capable:Is the vibrato a deal breaker on this library? I was thinking of picking it up on their sale
...is absolute true. But I'll add an important nuance in that you have three dynamic layers which, depending on the instrument, have different qualities in their vibrato as well as they timbre. So if you're in a crescendo, and you shift from non-vib to vib on the softest layer, and them proceed to higher layers, you can also craft your progressive legato more that the on/off implementation suggests. Again, if you listen carefully enough to the above, you might be able discern how I'm using the dynamics to get different vibrato effects.It's important to note that their vibrato "fader" doesn't really dial in vibrato the way you would for something like dynamics. It's basically an on/off switch
The cello is arguably the least plonkable. But it really repays a bit of effort in crafting the arcs, once you get a sense of the sweet spot of the kind of arcs it really excels at.Just picked up the library. The vibrato is interesting, but it seems like with proper programming, you can really make it sound realistic. The mic positions sound great as well.
I seem to like the Violin more than the cello on first listen
So I'd be interested in the extend to which you're feeling the same issues in the above noodle:From the examples I've heard on VI Control generally. Feel free to point me toward something specific.
I still hear the rockiness clearly in that example too. Sorry, don't mean to hate on your jam ism.So I'd be interested in the extend to which you're feeling the same issues in the above noodle:
There's a number of things going on here in an attempt to work with the bumpiness you're talk about. (Both in some maths at work in the Logic script, but also in the way I've learned to craft the performance around the dynamics arcs and vibrato transitions.)
Compared especially to my early noodles (and many of the early demo on vi-c) I think this is really starting to show the expressiveness the library is capable of.
Thanks for the critique.I still hear the rockiness clearly in that example too. Sorry, don't mean to hate on your jam ism.
It's the library. I think it sounds like a series of exquisitely performed and recorded notes that don't really flow well from one to another.
I also think you rule for posting these examples, especially ones that are exposed like this, as it's a ton more helpful than written opinions and assertions, and I think that we all benefit from it.
Mostly what's on my mind is that if I bought the library, I think I'd be frustrated trying to get it to do what I want, that's all.Further question - does this bumpiness bother you?
