A decent legato string sound using PO5

Post by Ben Crick » Fri May 01, 2020 10:04 pm


I've just got PO5 and I'm using it with Finale v25 and I've 2 issues, both with the strings.

Firstly, I can't get a convincing legato in any of the string settings, to the point where there is audible silence at the change of note and then a bizarre swell in to the sound.

My second problem is related, when the strings are playing quick music the shortness of the note doesn't allow the swell to happen and as a result there is a vast dynamic drop off in fast music and a massive accent on say, a minim, at the end of a phrase of semi quavers.

Any idea how I can improve this greatly appreciated
