    Using Kontakt 5 for Realistic Orchestra
    I searched for this but I didn't locate anything on it. I am looking to create a realistic sounding orchestra starting with strings using Kontakt. I am putting together solo instruments only such as a test cellos and then editing each of them. I was wondering if anyone is getting good results creating a realistic orchestra template. The idea is that if you are triggering a sample over and over the ear picks up that it's a sample and it sound synthetic. Also, each instrument in a real string section plays by starting slightly earlier or later, bows just a little differently, plays different velocities, plays a different instrument than members of the same section and may be sitting in front or behind another player in the section. Panning is not as difficult to produce the effect of being further back on the stage. Also, on Kontakt there is a randomness control. Some of these factors are hard to control and make sound natural but I would be interested in what everyone else is doing.
