Default 2 Tenor trombones unison

When I want to have tenor trombones play in unison I use 2 of the solo trombone patches. When they play together a kind of undesirable echoing sound can be heard that distorts the sound of the samples played together.

The 2 TB + 1 Bass Trombone patch could be used instead but I don't want the bass trombone sample in there.
I've tried detuning each trombone by a few cents either way but the distorted sound remains. Same is true for having one of the trombones play with repetition switched on. Offsetting the midi notes to each other doesn't seem to solve the issue either.

Does anyone else have this issue/ have any suggestions of how to get a 2 tenor trombone unison sound?

Detuning may not be enough.

Try and transposition trick.

2 tracks
1 at pitch and 1 down a tone.

In play have the 2nd instance of the patch transposed up a tone. This will play sames a tone lower, but will digitally transpose them up. Brass instruments invariably will have a slightly different timbre from note to note (as much as us brass players strive for absolute consistency).

Thanks, trumpoz! Your suggestion was great and solved it.

This method is actually mentioned in the manual as well along with the other two but I always assumed it just played the same midi samples albeit different notes without actually applying a re-tuning algorithm.
