I have been lurking around this forum for about a month now, ever since my 14 year old son told me he wanted Garritan Personal Orchestra for Christmas. I am impressed with quality and civility of the posts here.
We received and installed GPO last evening, (I’m not one to make someone wait till Christmas to open a gift like this just so long as it is given in the spirit of Christmas). The install went very well and now I see why all the excitement this product has generated is deserved.
I am a music hobbyist and have dabbled slightly into midi for the past 2 decades. The promise of midi, to me, has been to have the ability to “play” a virtual instrument using an input device such as a midi enabled instrument or computer generated instrument. Not being able to afford high dollar software and hardware my experience with the promise of midi has come up short, now GPO will change that.
Congratulations Gary, in my opinion GPO is a defining moment when the promise of midi is not only affordable to the masses but also bundled in a manner that is usable. I’m sure this is a Christmas you will remember often.
Merry Christmas and God bless you all,
