Arranging Sampled Strings — KeyboardMag

Arranging Sampled Strings — KeyboardMag:

“Use separate patches for each instrument, as this fights playing strings like an organ and forces you to think of all of the parts separately, as an arranger working with real string players would.”

I’m so glad I went to Feedly to find MusicTech feed today. In the list of similar was Keyboard Magazine. It’s not just about playing keyboards and pianos, it’s about using keyboards.

I’m always on the lookout for arranging tips for “virtual” ensembles, including how to size and “sound” the groups of instruments.

Handy hints. Examples in score!!!!
