@ZtarrZound & @garethcoker
The close mics blend definitely help. I’ve also found the shorts TM (time machine) patches help a tremendous amount if you’re trying to get an even shorter more controlled staccatissimo/spiccato sound. As Gareth said though. I still have to add a midi pre-delay to all of them though to get them on the grid.
And, one more vote for the CS longs
Personally I don’t think anything will ever beat La Scoring Strings staccatos, they’re just perfect in my opinion! Plus the “auto rhythm tool” is just icing on the cake.
