Music Composers Unite!
Adrian, the main reason people want divisi strings in sample libraries is to stop the doubling effect. a chord of any sort in EW Gold strings will multiply the size of the section. Funnily enough the HSO has divisi.
You are right, of course.
I suppose I was slightly paranoid about my own limitations over when and when not to use divisi in an orchestral setting.
That's next on my list of what to learn !
