    Should be noted that this trick can also be used to create divisi sections. If you layer two violin 1 patches, you effectively get eight (2*4) players, which is exactly half of the 16 players in symphonic strings. Great for added realism in your string writing. You could also consider a single SCS patch as your divisi section, and your 2x layered patches as your full section if you want a slightly smaller sound.

    On another note, these articles are a bit hidden on the site, so maybe it would be beneficial to share them on Facebook? Lots of great info to be gathered.

    It's truly unfortunate that you can't do this accessibly. I can't figure out how to instantiate two instances of Ensemble Strings in Kontakt Stand Alone. So, no way to expand the range to E7.

    Is it a good idea to use a sample start delay on the two duplicates to create a sense of an ensemble?
