Hello everyone, this is my first post!

In the past few days I've been working with the new, amazing Synchron Strings Pro. To me they provide the missing link for recording convincing mockups of fast and powerful classical pieces. I added the SSPro to my template in order to give strength and body to my string sections, and finally I hear something that fully satisfies me.

Here is a mockup of the first movement of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik:

I'd like to stress that this sound is out-of-the-box, no equalizers, compressor etc, just a bit of reverb. Hope you like it!

Nice work, Frederico, well done!

My one critical observation - just a slight intuitive impression based on having heard this piece countless times - is that the release of most if not all the notes seems a little bit on the 'soggy' side - i.e. a tiny tad too long. Analytically, whether it's because that's just how the library's release samples are by default, or perhaps because the reverb tail is drawing the note endings out somewhat too strongly, I couldn't say.

Anyway it's a very subtle thing and didn't spoil my enjoyment of your rendition of this great and lovely piece.

Thank you Macker for the feedback! Concerning the releases, in general I just have the tendency to prefer longer releases, so what I've done here reflects that. It's a combination of reverb setting and actual length of releases.

Macker's comment is pretty much what I would say myself. Could be not even the release and reverb settings, but the articulations. Sharp note endings contribute so much to the playfulness of this piece.

Cheers,

Crusoe.

Good point. Indeed, I had in mind a melodic and energetic interpretation of Mozart, rather than a light and playful one. Short notes fragment melodies, which was undesirable for my goal, and lose energy, since strings vibrate for smaller durations.

Surely one of the best demos here. Maybe the reverb could be a tad bit lower. Other than that fantastic job!
