Hi all,

I just bought SE Vol 1 Strings & Vol 1 Strings plus and I'm starting to have fun :-)
Don't want to bother you and I'm sorry for my very basic question... but I'd like to know the difference between Expression and Velocity X-fade.
Using the sliders it seems to have the same result.

Thanks in advance and... I will probably ask something "very basic" in the future, so I do apologize from now.

Velocity xFade crossfades between the dynamic layers, so you get
timbre changes as well as volume changes. Expression is a simple Volume control.

No need to apologise. We all have to start somewhere.

Hello, another Newbie Question:
What is then the difference between "Master Volume" and "Expression"?

Technically either can be used, but remember that Volume is applied after Expression. Traditionally Expression would be used for surgical work, maybe reducing the end of a phrase slightly or the volume of a note that is sticking out, and Volume is used for mixing, getting the while instrument to sit in the mix.

Automation of volume (cc07) usually results in moving the volume control fader of the instrument's channel strip in your DAW, so you will loose the ability to balance the channels in the mix with the faders.
