    viola solo sounds strange

    i'm new to GPO and i like it a lot so far, but the viola solo sounds strange, especially on middle c, like it is poorly looped or something. i searched to find any other threads on this, but couldn't. am i the only one with this problem? can it be fixed?

    i'm using the vst plugin.

    tucker,

    Welcome to the forum. Make sure to download the update to GPO. http://garritan.com/downloads.html There were some early looping issues with certain sequencers that were fixed in the new player.

    hi gary,

    i did this right after installing. here's a wave of middle c at full expression; maybe it will help:

    Wow - I just tried it and mine does it too. Middle C seems to be the worst.

    hmmm.

    Of course, what you are hearing is the loop in the sample. Loops vary in their audibility depending upon the nature of the particular wave. If anything can be done to improve the loop in question it will be contained in some future update. Judicious use of the mod wheel to shape any sustained notes can help disguise the periodic nature of loops if applied carefully.

    that's too bad; i was hoping it was just some setting in mine or something. well, this is just to write all the music. a real violist is going to play the part eventually.

    but if this were fixed, i would be very happy.

    anyway, thanks for the responses,

    Hey Tuckermc,

    The player versions of the solo viola do not have the same looping sound as the main solo viola does on c4. You can easily use one of them as a replacement.

    Yes, I've been using these as replacements, but there are still looping problems. For instance, the looping at middle c in Viola Plr 1 is also strange. Also, it clicks on the g below middle c. I guess violas don't usually play solo... Oh well. It's working for now.
