Popular/"developer approved" methods for achieving bow position/sordino
Hi - I haven't yet purchased SM strings but one of the remaining concerns I have, without being able to experiment with a demo, is that I might not be able to create a convincing sul tasto/ponticello or con sordino effect, much like some other libraries simulate. I have read the manual closely and surprisingly not found any mention of these terms at all. I imagine it's quite simple, but a matter of correctly modifying the harmonic bars then using realtime controllers as needed. However, I don't trust my ability to figure it out by ear, and I'm sure some people here or the development team have a much better understanding of the acoustics behind the shifts in timbre, so I'm asking here.
My question is, until it's made into a feature, what are some effective methods people are using for shifting bow position or creating a sordino effect? Thank you!
