I've downloaded the manual pdf but I can't easily find anything about the equalizer window. (I'm using EXS24 instruments.) One question has to do with the gray area which seems to be the master gain. I assume it defines the range and the smaller colored areas defines the actual herz within that range. When you are using the general ensemble string patches, I would assume that the master should be set to above the median for violins, equal above and below for violas, and below for cello and bass. Is this correct? In the more specific solo string patches such as viola section 1, the problem does not exist to that extent. Also in the ensemble patches, there is a question which plugins to use. If I were to use other samples such as the VSL string orchestra ones, I'm told that there are separate proprietary controls and that the Logic ones would not apply.
