I\'m guessing Gary won\'t mind my talking out of school on this.
I sent him an email a week ago or so and said, \"Do you realize if you had created GPO in Giga and Akai formats -- and nothing more -- you\'d be finished with your work by now and hailed as a hero?\"
He wrote back. \"You know, sometines I think the same thing. Usually every night before I go to sleep.\"
Thing is, I don\'t believe anybody really blames Garritan for any of the glitches we\'ve had to incur. Hey, he messed up. He trusted software developers. As we all have.
Look. I\'ve got a full orchestral program called GPO for way, way less than I\'d pay anywhere else. And a real one, not that SampleCell jive.
Besides, I use Pro Tools. Sure, I can only get three or four sounds at once on GPO. But that\'s pretty much what I\'m used to -- it\'s the same scenario on Unity, SampleCell and any other softsynth I\'ve tried.
What can I say? I\'m a Pro Tools guy, an audio guy. Give me one good track, I\'ll print it to audio and then move on.
I should probably post a demo soon from the pop-rock-Americana point of view.
