Well, I know I have been sharing a lot of Vienna based instrument compositions lately, but today I want to show everyone why Garritan is the other 50% of my personal fancy.
This is a very deep composition I am working on for "Love and War - Volume 1: Salvation, aka the new Dramatic War series." I will most likely have to increase the frequency on the rain, but the main idea is presented here.
Now listen to that cello... that is cello #2 from GPO. No library that I own can touch that haunting and emotional sound of a cello (IMO)... that cello is the most emotional and haunting cello I have ever heard. It is not based on fancy articulations or power produced instruments, it is the natural sadness like sound to the instrument. The Vienna cello doesn't even compare to it's rich sorrow.
Each library has its use. I chose Garritan because the instruments are dry and have their unique qualities that other libraries don't have (based on what I heard from demos and what I own). The garritan strings are heavenly, the Garritan cello is deep and haunting, and that Garritan English horn is warm and piercing. The Garritan instruments make a very great impact in my compositions and I am thankful for every dollar spent on them.
