  1. Hey, the stereo image of the instrument is a problem! The recording tries to sit ‘in the room’ it was recorded in, but it does not fit with the backing track. It does not sound correct ‘in place’. This is a problem with electronic emulations and sample-based material.

  2. It is less of a problem if the samples are recorded in the same way you would want them recorded if you were capturing a performance.

    It’s really important to check those things when you listen to demos, even summing to mono just to check to see if the person who recorded was competent.

    It is very difficult work, but even still, getting results that sound realistic are difficult. Fortunately, the jobs of violinists remain secure.
