    I have found several issues like these which are really problematic when composing and think that they should be fixed if not as priority 1, then definitely priority 2. Thanks for putting in the effort to log and report these! Would also hope Spitfire be more active on these forums and react to these posts.

    Agreed, came looking to see if anyone else was getting annoyed at these. 
    The Violin 2 problem is VERY obvious if you play legato shorts or staccato on D6 - the high pitched noise is almost louder than the violin. If you happen to need some of those notes it's really off-putting as all you can hear is that damned "Ding". You cant even remove it by limiting the round robins as it's on sample 1. To reproduce, just set round robins to 1 and play D6 and compare to every other note. 

    I've also found that for the flute legato (normal not a3), the vibrato is not a gradient like with every other instrument (including flute longs) where you can fade in slowly. At exactly the midpoint it just snaps on/off and it's a drastically different sound. Makes automating vibrato CC on the flute legato just sound really awful, you cant use it. 
    Same problem with the legato bassoon.

    I'm opening tickets for these now.
    I'd really really like to see a response from Spitfire about these.

    I thought all vibratos were simply on/off across libraries, except for solo strings total performance?

    Matteo Galesi Yeah, they seem to be, which is another problem - it makes no sense they are controlled using a gradual controller. This applies to several other instrument properties as well. I wonder what their thinking has been here. One would hope they would have implemented gradual adjustment in some updates for these, but it seems the product design / development has just been left unfinished for these.
