I have BBCSO, want solo strings
Tips for getting Solo Strings to sit well with BBCSO...do they sound good together?
and which solo strings blend better with BBCSO?
Solo Strings or Abbey Road TWO?
I want to compose for symphony Orchestra I am already invested in BBCSO. Since BBC and Solo Strings were recorded in different studios can they be made to blend well together using easy mixing techniques?
All guidance and opinions are appreciated.
Ordinarily you would try to get the driest possible mic choices and then use a 3rd party reverb (and gentle compression) to blend things well. I'm in love with Auburn Studio's Panagement, which is amazing to spatially place instruments and the pro version has a really pretty reverb, too, that acts most natural based on your placement. This is tremendous to blend things together most naturally.0
I use BBCSO with Spitfire Solo Strings all the time and I think they blend well naturally. I always add a little extra reverb to my tracks but I don't do anything special to make them blend better. They sound great together to me.1
