    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">For whatever it\'s worth, Gary has been telling me over the phone for the last couple of weeks that a \"really big announcement\" was coming. This could be it.

    I just checked harps.com. It also appears that a new harps sample CD is in the works.

    I did a little google search and found this:

    \"Garritan Personal Orchestra: Berklee Edition
    Designed specifically for Berklee students, faculty, and curriculum and only available as part the bundles for Berklee\'s tech-heavy majors, Gary Garritan has created the Garritan Personal Orchestra: Berklee Edition (GPO). The special GPO: Berklee Edition is a complete orchestral sample library that contains instruments representing all families of orchestral instruments: strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion. The library also contains a sampled Steinway Concert Grand Piano and a concert pipe organ. Sections and solo instruments are included in the GPO, all programmed in Kontakt to be highly expressive and playable through the use of MIDI controllers. Performance controls include expression, legato, attack, portamento, as well as others. Multiple individual solo instruments make it possible to create ensembles one instrument at a time.

    From reading the text on the page closer, it appears that it will be part of some of those bundles and only for sale to students in those programs. I imagine it is at those prices. The prices will be more expensive for people who are not attending Berklee.

    Hopefully there will be some word either way soon.
