    Query re strings

    In an orchestral arrangement I notice a tendency for GPO string section violins, when playing a long note (e.g. semibreve 4 beats), to swell with more intensity towards the end of the note. It is possible to alter this characteristic so that the note maintains an even sound level?
    I'm new to MIDI so any help would be appreciated here.

    You could compensate by drawing a modulation curve (using midi controller #1 in a sequencer) at the swell to drop the timbre/volume of the instrument. However, this swell is natural in the sample.

    Thanks Joseph - I will try the sequencer method to see if I can get satisfactory results.
