    @Farkle, I thought why not give a try, some more vibrato (not the vibrato rate btw!). In the context it works definitely better, thanks for your remark about this.
    Furthermore, (hopefully) improved EQ-settings, less extreme dynamic settings, EZQ (Toneboosters) more neutral.

    Anyway, starting from what I had, this wasn't much of an effort, so I someone has more suggestions, just let me know...

    This is certainly sweeter and I would say more realistic, if only because increased vibrato helps trick your ear into thinking "more expressive". You seem to have a good sense for string performances.

    Another update: In the first page of this thread I added my Xsample (Standard) version with all the needed articulations.

    I was not sure if or with which string library I should go, so: thanks for that thread; here is my version with KF strings. Surely there is still a lot to do and maybe I did not always use the correct articulations, but for a first impression ...

    Has anyone used the spitfire solo strings for quartet writing? I’m concidering buying it with the wish list discount.

    OMG, my favorite string quartet of all time - and it sounds fantastic! Did you mock this up yourself or is the midi available somewhere?

    sorry I'm not quite familiar with quoting function yet:

    These are solo patches from Kontakt Factory; I used the midi file from Rob in the first post of this thread and tweaked it.

    I am not really satisfied with the reverb, too; I followed the example of Rob and some recordings, but I have not yet found the right balance and the warmth of the room.
