Terry, you're right
I could not help comparing the T2 strings to a real orchestra because the other voices sounded so perfectly.
I am aware that a keyboard cannot reproduce the strings exacltly. There are many articulations the real strings can play - once I was a violin and viola player, too
I noticed that each note the strings voice played was stressed. Each note standed for itself and thus was spoiling the melody.
It is possible also that you may have picked a wrong voice. You could try to play the same piece with an ordinary strings ensemble voice, or with separate violin, viola and chello voices. Or replace the strings with completely different instruments like the Block flute family (T2 should have a good selection of these).
