Is there a way to vary solo string vibrato depth in VI Solo Strings I (extended)? I notice that this seems to happen automatically to some extent depending on articulation and dynamics but there are times, say, when I want a forte cello pitch in the mid register to only have a light vibrato yet the default is often quite heavy and rapid. I know there is non vibrato but this is quite a different sound. The sample set indicated on the website says Solo Strings I extended features 'Sustained with progressive, fading, and without vibrato' but I cannot see a way to trigger 'progressive or fading' specifically - the optimising manual does not mention progressive vibrato for VI Strings.

In general the depth of vibrato can have quite a big effect on the realism of the sound so it would be good to know how to control it better.

Hello Northfield!

With Sibelius and VI Solo Strings you can trigger the progressive vibrato patch with help of a custom cell. How this can be done, is explained in the VSL Integration tutorial:
