This might be a dumb question, but is there any way to make 4-mallet marimba rolls sounds more natural? Right now, it's just sounding like four pairs of hands rolling on each note of the chord. I am just unaware if this is something that can be done by VDL at this point in technology. I'm looking for more of a less-mechanical sound, but I am aware of the limitations of technology.
Been doing that for years. Only I have 1 staff for printing and 1 staff for playback. I used to do the multi layer thing back in Finale 05, but it can get too confusing, and now that I can have 128 staves, and they can ALL be percussion staves, I just use different staves.
