Gary Garritan and Herb Tucmandl announce a collaboration in an unprecedented effort to provide orchestral sampled sounds to a wide array of musicians. Garritan Personal Orchestra users will be able to purchase the Vienna Symphonic Library at a discount. Vienna Symphonic Library owners will also be entitled to a discount on Garritan Personal Orchestra.
Gary Garritan and the Vienna Symphonic Library are the only two sample libraries to win the coveted Electronic Musician Editor\'s Choice Award. Both have been recipients and nominees of various industry awards and have set new standards in innovation and excellence. Both share many of the same goals and visions and it is natural to work together.
The two libraries compliment each other nicely. Garritan Personal Orchestra users can now enjoy a new palette of orchestra sounds at their disposal as well as Vienna’s exclusive Performance Tool including the unique Legato Mode. Vienna Symphonic Library owners can also have new sounds as well as the ability to work with notation programs.
Perhaps this will start a new trend of cooperation among sample content developers in order to meet the needs of today\'s musicians.
According to Mr. Garritan, \"This collaboration will represent the first time two leading orchestral library developers have gotten together to cooperate. It is a great thing for sample developers to join hands and work together to find avenues of cooperation. I hope this will result in a new level of expectations in the industry.\"
