EDIT 2021-02-10: This is the most up-to-date version:
I’ve completed the first edits on Elgar’s Enigma Variations (at the moment, just the Thema). Dorico driving VSL’s Synchron Strings Pro, Synchronized Woodwinds and VI Dimension Brass.
This piece is one of the most difficult to do with a synthetic orchestra. While I guess I’ll have to still work on it, I think it is already an interesting test for Dorico. Micro-tuning is very deep. And it is indeed possible.
What do you think? Any suggestions on how to try to improve it? (Note: someone has already pointed out how this version is very ‘dry’ compared to the available recordings; I would consider it as a first-row rehearsal listening…)
These are different mixes, all with more ambience:
