"As it turns out, I found a decent and more precise hi-pass filter among Logic's "legacy" AUs. Applying it, along with the tips I got on this thread about how to use it, made a huge difference."

"Thanks for the input, Bob. I didn't see any mentions of non-vibrato samples. In any event, I'm unlikely to find an instrument that would make me want to shell out more bucks on instruments. I've spent enough."

"Oh! one more thing. Is the flute vibrato a pitch variant or actually a tremolo? As closely as I've listened, I can't really tell. Physics tells me that it has to be a tremolo. (There shouldn't be any way to bend a note on a straight…"

"Not familiar with the music. (There were a lot of Baroque composers). Personally, I much prefer a faster, flatter vibrato. I think that the little portamentos at :50 would have been uncharacteristic for the period. It's definitely an acceptable…"

It's been a life-long dream drive to create music. Been in bands, played in orchestras and listened to it all. I've always wanted to compose, but didn't think I could do it until I got serious about working with DAWs. I guess the DAW is my instrument now.
