Lots of unisono with different patches, e.g. 1st and 2nd voice played 
with two different string/synth patches, flute and horn doubling the 1st 
voice at different stretches, cello to doubling the 3rd voice and the 
bass, and so on...

Yeah, that is totally just a MIDI file rendered, I'm pretty sure.

I find it pretty boring, tbh.

Trying not to get too defensive, but I suspect that our aesthetics 
differ here. I was definitely going for a "human feel", thatswhy I 
played everything by hand and corrected only very glaring timing errors 
in the MIDI later. It may well be, that this turned too sloppy for your 
taste. I'm a synth nerd and song writer / producer first, not a great 
player, so its totally possible that I did not reach a level of cohesion 
some discerning listeners expect.
