    Kontakt and EXS24 Versions of GOS

    Greetings,

    I am using Logic 6.0 (Mac, of course) and considering the purchase of either GOS or SISS along with either the EXS24-mkII or Kontakt. I have seen the posts here about the impending release of EXS24 and Kontakt versions of GOS and have the following questions:

    -- Will both the EXS24 and Kontakt versions be capable of both legato mode and alternating bows without an external application (ala MaestroTools)?

    -- Will there be any difference between the EXS24 and Kontakt versions?

    -- Will the EXS24 and Kontakt versions achieve the same legato phrasing as Giga?

    -- Legato is very important to me. Can anyone speak to the difference in realism of legato mode between GOS and SISS?

    Thanks in advance,

    --- Stephen

    I\'m also a Logic (6.1) user on mac with the EXS quickly becoming my main sampler because of its integration within the Logic app.

    I too, would be interested in the answers to Stephan\'s post.

    Stephen,

    Sorry for the delay replying to this but I’ve just returned from some travelling and I was blissfully unattached to the internet (or email). Now I’m catching up.

    “-- Will both the EXS24 and Kontakt versions be capable of both legato mode and alternating bows without an external application (ala MaestroTools)?”

    The final answer to this question has not been completely determined yet. Since neither of these versions will be just a “port” from Giga many choices on programming must be weighed as we go along. Probably, “yes” (but don’t take that as a guarantee).

    “-- Will there be any difference between the EXS24 and Kontakt versions?”

    Yes. The libraries will be programmed to take advantage of unique features in each platform.

    -- Will the EXS24 and Kontakt versions achieve the same legato phrasing as Giga?

    Essentially, “yes.” The means to achieve this will probably differ – certainly differ in the case of Kontakt.

    One other thing: The Kontakt version will come before the EXS24 version.

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">fitch,

    We will have a generous crossgrade option and the amount will be nominal. Please call me for details. It will be a little longer than the Kontakt version to be released as we are waiting for Emagic to do a few things in the program.
