The bank provides enhanced high-frequency components, that facilitate process of mixdown of an orchestral soundtrack. Basic presets of “Nylon Ramirez Guitar” have extremely high dynamics, that requires an observance of some rules. When using “Nylon Ramirez Guitar” in ensemble with other instruments in close dynamic and register positions it is necessary to set Volume to value 75 or below.
