    Editing GOS SFZ Files

    Hello Everyone,

    I'd like to edit the sfz file for:

    Personal Orchestra 5 - Garritan Orchestral Strings - Section Strings - Violins - Violins Long Bows - 10 Violins Sustains

    I would like to change the ending "swell" effect on these to reduce or remove it. Is this possible and if so how would I go about this.

    I have also sent a message to our forums guru, SysexJohn on editing sfz files.

    Thanks for any help anyone can offer with this.

    Bet wishes,

    Michael

    Hi Ted,

    Well, I'll try. I'm not sure, at this point, whether the problem lies within the samples themselves, although I suspect not, or within the processing of the samples, which is more likely.

    However, these GPO5, GOS samples are considerably more complex in sfz processing than the GPO4 ones.
    With four different dynamic levels, Garritan labelled as p, mp, mf and f layers, which are crossfaded between, depending upon required volume, and additionally being subject to ADSR, tone and offset controls.

    The sfz files, and there are several just for 10 violins long bows, are nested at several levels.
    So far I'm quite "challenged" making sense of what's going on.
    Perhaps just a few steps ahead of Michael. ;-)

    Anyway ...

    Kind regards,
    John.
