Bowed upright bass sound for non-subsribers!
I know the option is available for crescendo, but I think since the Bass is such a staple to a string orchestra, there should at least be the option to have an arco sound, while the current sound is just pizzicato. I realize that in crescendo there's the option for each string to have pizz or arco, but it doesn't make sense to not have a bowed bass sound at all in the free version, while all the other strings are bowed. As a bass player I think it's really frustrating because for every string orchestra song I compose, I have to use a cello and 8vb.
We will consider this, but for now as a workaround: use the cello but instead of 8vb, change the “octave” in the instrument dialog to adjust the playback. Then you can change the displayed instrument name as well.
