Usually, i follow the rule “to keep real instruments live-recorded and unnatural ones - synthesized” (i know, it doesn`t sound good…)
I mean, I can imagine how to do it with piano sound, but what about winds, for example? Or violin?
p.s. I`m not talking about things like “use better VSTi” because…you know…it cannot do your job.
p.p.s. Sorry for my english.
p.p.p.s.Вопрос к русскоязычным: нужно ли переводить мой бред?
