I am doing a recording project.
I confidently assert that Cubase will allow to add some nice orchestral tracks to my recording. By the way, I can read music well, have played in orchestras and know something about music.
So I start using HSO. After a few attempts, forums, installations, re-installations etc. I learn that I must use Halion SE with Hso samples.
After about ten hours of fiddling this is where I am at [my musical ideas and creativity are on hold- temporarily]
. The presets are too quiet so you have to adjust the modulation setting in the MIDI editor to 127 to get the full volume. Is this correct and er… why?
. I ceate a loop using a flute preset. When I start using the preset it gives a pleasant tone with moderate vibrato like orchestral players do until you growl at them. Each time the loop plays the vibrato increases until it plays trills even when the notation is just a semibreve.
. When I look at the VST expression parameters on the left column of the Project window it appears that the sequence automatically changes the note parameters to ‘half-note trill’ every few notes or so. Why I do not know. I did not intend to put trills in the music. Did I press something accidentally and how would I turn it off?
. Curiously If I go back and load the preset again the tone returns to the nice slow vibrato and non-psychotic bleat.
Every so slightly frustrated and hoping that I can go to the computer and start making some music soon.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated although I would stop short of actual cash payments.
