Re: Idea For Forum
I would gladly go along with anything that would enhance participation. I more than appreciate the desire to use only Garritan libraries here - after all, were it not for Garritan I would probably have never turned to the computer. My only observation is that with prices for a full EW Diamond Hollywood Symphony library down to just $600, we may have difficulty restricting participation to only Garritan samples. I presented a selection here not long ago that used a combination of Garritan PO and EW Symphonic Choirs and received considerable flack for it.
I believe there are two possible solutions. One would be to allow a variety of sample libraries to be used. The second would be the introduction of new or expanded Garritan libraries to attract new composers.
What kind of flack you had and from whom? It would have been totally unfair, since we are mixing libraries for years here.
Since you are mentioning EW Symphonic Choirs, I have a hell of a time to get it working with the WB. If I would ask on a separate post, describing my problem, would you kindly tell me how you are using it?
