Hello everyone, looking for some advise on purchasing a better solo strings VST. I’m currently using Noteperformer, which is considerably better than the included HALion library, but while the woodwinds and brass are surprisingly good, the strings are the weak point. One important point for me is it must absolutely be able to perform without any vibrato and have accurate intonation–I use Dorico to write microtonal music in extended just intonation and very precise tuning and an absence of vibrato is necessary for me to accurately hear some of the intervals I’m targeting clearly. For example, I just posted this sketch yesterday: https://youtu.be/QHlSCTtkMi0.
Ideally I’d like to get an expression map together so that I could mostly rely on the written notation, but for final mockups I’m willing to do some fine editing and key switching by hand (though this has to happen all in Dorico, since Dorico does not export midi+pitchbend). I’d like to keep this within the couple hundred dollars range if possible.
Thanks for any help!
