I\'d like to pick up GPO but the website is really vague on some things that should be mentioned. I did get an e-mail answer about chromatically sampled (solo) instruments. Now that I find out the whole library fits into memory (new info to me), I guess I can assume mono samples and relatively short loops. But there are a few questions still open.
What about running on a machine with less than 1GB of memory (I have 640MB on my Mac so I\'m not too bad off). The site seems to suggest maybe it can be done but gives no details. Not everybody needs to run a full orchestra at once. I just need one thing at a time, like the pipe organ, or brass section for example. Can just certain catagories of instruments be loaded?
Can the version of Konkatk that is included load other samples from other libraries other than GPO or does one have to upgrade to the full version of Kontatk for that?
Likewise, can the GPO library be used in Gigastudio?
Here we have a new library that can\'t even be bought yet (next question) and already I\'m seeing mention of bugs and updates and new add-ons. Quite frankly it already sounds like a mess (which is why I hate software). Will these current fixes and additions be in the shipping version so one doesn\'t need to immediately go to the Garritan and NI websites to download a bunch of fixes?
Also, every place I\'ve visited online says \"coming soon\" or \"pre-order\", yet many people seem to have it already. I can\'t figure out whether it\'s a current or future product. Any idea?
Thanks for the info.
