Sounds and Gear "IO" Review
That's a strikingly casual video review, not at all in-depth, and badly in need of an editor - It's nice this guy at Sounds and Gear basically likes IO, but I'm puzzled by how unprofessional both his video and text are. His criticisms are vague and as dubious as his positive remarks. But - there it is - At least Garritan is being talked about, and this is a nice sale that MM has on right now.
--A side note about the strings in IO and GPO
NOTICE - Forum regulars - Something I've commented on numerous times on various threads, is that for quite awhile now, the default settings for the strings in both IO and GPO have the sound cut off unnaturally. It's an issue with some of the woodwind patches too. To push the Length control in ARIA up just a tiny bit takes care of the problem, and gives you a much better sound. Well, I bring it up because in this video when the reviewer plays a string patch, you can painfully hear what I'm talking about. Instant synth effect with the sound chopping off like that. The tiniest bit of smoothing out the release envelope, and the samples return to life.
