Ensure the Divisi Number Is Different When Adding Multiple Sections of the Same Instruments Playing at Unison
When adding new instances of string sections, there's an automated process that repositions the new sections in the virtual space to prevent overlapping and automatically applies an anti-phasing setup to avoid potential phase cancellation issues.
However, in certain circumstances (e.g., duplicating a track in some DAWs), the automation may not take effect. It's a good practice to double-check that the instruments are never overlapping in the virtual room space in the Room Simulator and that they have different anti-phasing (Divisi) settings, at least between the instances that are duplicated and playing in unison.
You can check and edit the anti-phasing settings on the advanced parameters /instrument / Divisi Anti-Phasing. This precaution ensures that when you use multiple instances of the same instrument to create a unified, layered sound, they do not interfere with each other, maintaining the desired sound quality and preventing unwanted phase-related artifacts.
