“I use a lot of samples in my work, but typically with samples, for example string samples, it only work for one type of articulation so, a slower legato string will work for pads, but then if you want to play a fast run suddenly doesn’t work anymore. So you have to use another sample for that or if you want to switch to a staccato articulation then you need another sample for that, but these plugins are so deep, you can control every aspect of the sound of the acoustic instrument, which is amazing!”
