Hi - here's my first EXS instrument. My violin recorded dry - so you'll need some reverb to bring it to life as it was recorded in a voice booth so very dead. Mic was a Neumann U87ai powered by a Fireface 400 and into Logic. http://soundcloud.com/jonathanslatter/violin-exs-samples-1 2 patches - legato and stac - and 2 velocity layers on each patch. Use the C and D below the violin open G string (octave below mid C) to key switch between them. Add some reverb!
