After listening to the demos I started second guessing my decision to buy GPO. They are good and for the $249 no one could go wrong. I am just not as impressed by the demos as I am when I hear the Sam Horn or Gary\'s own orchestral string demos. I know we\'re talking about a dollar difference here but I have spent tons of money in the past buying something less expensive in hopes that it will suffice. I understand that GPO is meant for mock ups and is portable etc. I want to make sure I get the best sounds even if it costs a little (or a lot) more. As they say \"The poor man pays twice\". I\'d love to hear from some of the beta testers on how the individual sounds compare to say Sam horns or Garritan orch strings. I agree with one member who thought that the Beethhoven demo was a little synth sounding at the intro. I guess I will wait for more demos before I make the leap.
