Well, here's a trial. I've recorded a trio this weekend - piano, flute and violin.
Link to the song
The digital piano was recorded directly to an Audiophile 192, stereo. The flute and violin were overdubs, so there were lots of bleeds from each track. Sennheiser e835 for the flute, a homemade mic based on telephone capsules for the violin. Cheap mixer preamps on the overdubs chain.
Audacity was the software, freeware plugins have been used too.
Violin at center, the other ones were panned 20%, opposite.
Any replies are very welcome.

Hey, I really dig the sound, especially from the digital piano, it's some of the best digital piano sound I've heard in a long time. The Violin is getting a ton of surface sound that I don't think most listeners are used to hearing. That could be from a hanful of things.
#1, try micing the violin in a good room, using a room mic and a direct mic, and blend heavy on the room side.
#2, Have the violinist use less abrasive strings, something like a eudoxa just sound richer in tone, less like a karate chop.
He or she is also struggeling a bit with intonation, which is just inherintly hard on a stringed instrument. causes a sharp pierce to the sound sometimes.
Lastly, the vibratto the violinist uses is a little to spastic. Try to encourage a more controlled and developed sound. When playing legatto, a really quick vibratto sounds out of place, it needed a bit wide vibratto sound, changing with the speed of the passage.
