Hello! I often write string parts for various projects, but my current workflow is a bit tedious in some areas and I was hoping I could get some feedback on how I can speed things up a bit. Maybe there’s some key commands or not so obvious functions I’m missing?
So when I’m writing, I start with an ensemble patch from Native Instrument’s Session Strings Pro 2. I like being able to write each part all in one midi clip versus jumping between clips for each section. Once I’m finished writing all the parts, I then load up Spitfire’s Chamber Strings to layer it with the Session Strings. This is where my problem is: to get the most out of Chamber Strings, I use a separate patch for each section (violins, violas, etc) but this forces me to go through the original ensemble midi clip and separate each part, which I usually do by copy pasting the clip and removing the notes that aren’t for the intended section. This is quite time consuming, and I’m wondering if there’s a way to get around this. I thought maybe there’d be a key command to remove high or low harmonies, but I didn’t see anything like that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
