Celeste voice using CPO

Postby PipeOrganFan » Thu Jun 02, 2016 12:33 pm

I was always disappointed that Garritan chose not to include organ celeste samples with CPO. Today, I was struck by a blinding flash of the obvious. By loading 2 channels with the same voice the second voice can be "detuned" to create exactly what a pipe organ tuner does. I find + or - 12 sounds good to my ear. (Place the mouse pointer over the number right after "tune" and move it up or down and the value will change).

An excellent tip PipeOrganFan, thank you.
+/- 12 gives exactly an octave of course.
Have you tried thirds and fifths?
Have you tried alternative Scala tunings available via the 'settings' tab?

1) +/- 12. Yeah, I would have thought it would have given an octave too but when I listen to the voices it isn't as I can definitely hear the "undulation" at 12. So apparently "12" isn't an octave? Ultimately, it's what sounds good to your ear.
2) No I haven't tried thirds & fifths. You could create your own mutations I suppose.
3) When I tried changing the tuning type, Aria changed all the voices together. Apparently that's a global selection.

Thank you for your response.
