PS. I like your composition "Transitions in life" on you page. Very good arrangement. How do you modulate the solo-violin so well with the glissandos and vibratos?
Thank you! It is the Garritan Stradivari solo violin. The portamento (portamenti
) speed is controlled by the velocity of the next, or target note. A low velocity creates a big slide from the note being played as the next note is played, provided the notes are played legato, (connected). If notes are played legato and the next note has a high velocity, there is no sliding to the next note. Really awesome design.
The vibrato is controlled with the mod-wheel and aftertouch controls the vibrato speed. Sad that these solo stringed instruments are no longer available. The Garritan Stradivari solo violin and the Garritan Gofriller solo cello were taken off the market because of some issues between the designer and Garritan. Even though Garritan was an attorney, he is too nice to take someone to court over something like that.
Thank you creater for the nice compliment.
