Making Trills using Sample String Instruments
« on: April 13, 2018, 07:20:21 pm »
Hey all,
I've been working with NI Session Strings and a few other sample libraries and I've been unsuccessful in creating a good trill sound.  I'm using kontakt right now, and I have been able to program nice vibrato sound using LFO, but I want to get something that sounds like the trill in this video.

You can also hear something similar at 1:25 in Andrew Bayer's track "Closing Act" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9gkC1EhYjc
I also want to be able to control the speed of the trill so it can start slow and go faster for instance.  This is often heard in somber strings parts on songs.

I've tried switching the LFO to a rectangle, but it sounds super digital and I haven't figured out a way to make it more organic sounding.

I guess I could just play different notes on the piano roll, but It'd be cool to program it.
