Hello good peoples!
Just like to share this track that I made some changes to. Specifically, I used Spitfire’s Abbey Road One as the main string library and blended it with Audio Imperia’s Areia. The difference from the original is actually quite striking to me. Originally I used Areia con sordino strings, and they sounded quite good. But just changing them to ARO, it’s like the entire piece just remixed itself! The solo woodwinds–especially the oboe just came out and blended much better and it sounds like the whole mix just cleaned up real nice.
I still layered ARO with Areia because ARO doesn’t have a legato articulation and the dynamics seem to only go as quiet as pianissimo, whereas Areia can go all the way to niente, which is what I needed at the beginning and the end, but otherwise, I have to say the ARO mix and mics sound amazing! This is the first time I’ve gotten around to using it, so definitely will us more of it in the future!
