I am about to buy one of the Orchestral libraries, but I am torn between the two I have it narrowed down to. GPO is one.
The site says 2G of space is needed. Are the samples compressed in some way to fit all the samples in that space? Or is it really 2G of samples total?
16 or 24 bit?
I am using Pro Tools (have both HD Accel and PT LE systems in my home). I also own Kontakt, have latest ver (1.5.x). Running WIn XP Pro on both systems. Currently, Kontakt suffers from a bug that ALL RTAS by NI suffer from that I have tried, or others I have spoken have tried/own: Only one MIDI channel per instance will appear in the MIDI out selection menu on a MIDI track in Pro Tools (LE and TDM, version 6.x.x, as appropriate per system). While this does not bother me much when using a single patch per instance, and I prefer to have a single instrument per track, I am getting a picture of *needing* more than one channel (or instrument, or patch) to \"use GPO correctly.\" Does the NI player provided with GPO suffer from this as well? Has the update for the player been released yet that allows DFD? (I have this with Kontakt, and use it regularly without issue).
Will GPO \"grow\" over time? Or is it \"stagnant\" in sample content, and simply receive new \"programming\" over time?
In stock? (looking to make my choice and purchase this week [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] )
Does anyone have an example of using GPO in a pop/rock/metal context/mix? I will be using it (primarily) in a large project I am doing, with strong ties to prog-rock/metal, notable influences being Pink FLoyd, Yes, Rush, Queensryche, King Diamond. VOTA and WHite Grand already decided, this is the last major decision to be made (for now!).
FInally, GOS- will similar releases be forthcoming? By that, maybe GOH, GOP, etc? (horns, perc, etc)
Replies greatly appreciated!
(BTW- thx for all the demos. this has helped ALOT with the decision making so far)
