Could you mention the mics and preamps you are using, conversion, the formats, sample and bitrates at which you record & mix;these all have major impact on the sound- once you are line level, you have a great level of control. Let's look at the chain getting into the computer.

When I did my first classical recording job almost 20 years ago, I learned a LOT about how much room orchestral instruments need to sound correct. You need to be able to back away from a string or brass instrument, and again- this correlates directly to the mic, preamp, conversion, sample & bitrate.

Hope this helps,
