during those years being a member of this forum, I admired your music, your skills, your patience, your perseverance making all Garritan Products shine, not ony for your personal benefit, but merely for the joy of it all. Above all your musicality, your on going optimism, translated into surprising nice pieces of music. Not only that, you all withstood my ignorance well, over and over explaining why, when and how.
During those years I'd met many friends, Hannes_F, GermanComposer, Samantha Peningar, Karen Peace, Raymond Kemp, Ronald Ferguson, too many to name them all. I reserved a special corner for Larry Alexander, Randy Bowser, Dan Kury. If I didn't mention your name that doesn't mean that I don't admire you. Oldies and youngsters, everybody contributed to my struggle making music with and sometimes without Garritan Libraries.
Now is the time for me to say goodbye. Why? Since I purchased other libraries, EWQL SO Platnum+ and some VSL Special Edition Strings, there not much for me to do with GPO. Maybe some occasional altoflute, but that's really all. Besides that I am moving into another direction in my composing. I'll concentrate on studying musical theory, composing techniques, notation laws, etc. It is about time that I educate myself a bit.
Ofcourse I will have a peak once in a while, seeing if there are some interesting developments going on with Garritan, but I will not post any more messages, replies or music.
Dear friends, thank you all very, very much. You made my life shine those last years. A hug for everybody.
