Why do I need the first and second violins?
This is a very good and correct question that many of you are rightly asking!
The perfect balance and highly sought-after sound of the orchestra has been perfected over the centuries. In order to capture this sonic beauty with samples, each section must be carefully captured…multiple players, each with different instruments, slightly different timbres, subtle differences in tuning, vibrato, and in different positions in the stereo/soundfield.
The combination of USE of the first and second violins in your palette allows you to access this beautiful, lush synergy of instruments… which is impossible due to the overlay of several tracks of the first violins, which at the very least can cause phase problems, but more importantly, keep your music from its full potential and depth.
For United Strings of Europe, the second violins are especially important because – in keeping with the way the USE is played (and like how many scores are recorded) – the second violins are actually located to the right of the conductor, while the first violins are opposite to the left. Usually a lot of parts are recorded this way, and they have the advantage of having the bass sitting in the middle back (you want the bass in your track to be in the middle!)
On top of all this – in purely musical/performing terms – every note on the second violins is new and new performance for the first violins… Each note has a slightly different intent, emotion and musicality. Combining and orchestrating with both sections will increase the depth of your music by several times.
