How to make Muse Sounds play clearly fast passages?
I heard demos of muse sounds strings and they sound nice and convincing in slow homophonic passages. However in fast polyphonic passages, when I put slur on phrases (because I want them to sound legato) strings sound too smooth and hard to distinguish different voices. With solo strings its worse because violin 1 playing legato sounds like sliding and bending instead of legato. Does anyone know a way to make fast polyphonic passages sound clear? Some articulation? Some technique? Or is it a limitation of the software?
The bug with the portamento on solo strings is already reported.
For other problems, best to open an issue report on GitHub and attach the specific score with the problem (ZIP it first so GitHub will accept it) so the developers can investigate.

Ok. If the portamento is a bug so one less thing to worry.
The rest I really don't know if could be described as bug, feature or lack of ability if mine with the new sounds.
Could you developers or some user provide some mscz demo files that work well with Muse sounds for us to learn to use them better?

Ideally, you don't have to do anything special, they should just work. So if you have cases where they aren't performing like you expect, best to report on GitHub with an example score so developers can investigate. Any workarounds people find for these issues now (like, adding accents to all notes works around the solo string portamento problem) will probably end up being counterproductive once the underlying issues are fixed.
