    Powerful string hits - revisited

    I'm still on my quest to find powerful hits, so I just wanted to update people on my progress. The best 'power hit' I've come up with uses Gold and a little bit from the Roland Orchestral sound set (LCDX-04). Not *just* a string hit since it uses some french horn as well, but I think it sounds like mostly strings, or at least, is closest to the sound I want.

    Again, a riff from the Metal Gear Solid 2 main theme.

    Here's another patch, for higher string hits. This one uses the close (as opposed to far) marcato and quick u/d patches from Gold, the Roland marcato strings, and the "Cadenza" marcato strings. It uses GlaceVerb.

    This riff is from a rearrangement I did, based on a song from the SNES game "Chrono Trigger".

    Hi, they sound great, particularly the first one.

    Have you tried layering your string "hits" with other members of the orchestra? Woodwinds can play a great (and not too obvious) supporting role. Some pitched percussion would help too.

    Scott.

    That sounds pretty good ! But i think you can do two more things to fatten it up .

    Loosen the attack times for the notes. And double all the notes with their octave above ( or below )
