Is it possible to make Session Strings Pro have faster attack?

Hi there, I am using Session Strings Pro and I am finding it difficult to achieve the truthful immediate attack of string instruments for close mic'ed funk / disco. I should be able to play a melody on the keyboard and hear it immediately without having to spend a lot of time editing the midi due to slow attack of each note. I am sure everyone has experienced this with strings. Do I need a different sample set? I don't particularly want large, cinematic orchestral sample sets, just small detailed ensembles that attack nicely and perform without too much complex editing. Thanks, Justin

    Hey @justinwaterhouse Unfortunately there is no such feature in this library. Have you tried Symphony Essentials String Ensemble ? Maybe other users can give their go to string libraries or tips ?

    Welcome to the community!

    Just making sure I fully got the issue: we're talking about Session Strings Pro, not Session Strings 2 Pro here, right? I just looked it up and noticed that both exist, however... Session Strings has been superseded by Session Strings 2 (which I own) and that instrument doesn't seem to have this issue with slow buildups. In fact, you can somewhat customize this, but the default presets provide a very short attack.

    So assuming I got these details right then I'd suggest looking into Session Strings 2; maybe even the Pro version. You'd probably qualify for the upgrade fee as well.

    Thanks for your comments, I am using the original version of Session Strings Pro, not Session Strings Pro 2. The walkthrough for Pro 2 says it is a big improvement on the one I have, so maybe I should upgrade to Pro 2. The attack sounds much better. Thanks for putting me onto that. What's that about qualifying for the upgrade fee?
