Its just the way that I play. I dont believe in adding effects to 
pre-recorded loops, or altering them in any way afterwards. Its a kind 
of personal philosophy that I have.... the music should be performed as 
it is played... If it cant be played live, then it should not be played 
at all. If I want to pitch shift, I route the violin through an effects 
unit prior to the loop being recorded.

I used to have the same philosophy when I used to session work in 
studios. If I had the authority to impose my rules, the entire vioin 
tracks had to be recorded from start to finish without any 
overdubs/drop-ins..... I feel like a cheat if I dont stick to this rule.

Yes... I am strange :)
