    An explosion....something\'s happening here!..Hardy

    Has anyone else noticed this? In recent times, GPO users are really getting to grips with the power of GPO and just as importantly the way to control it with MIDI!!

    Some of the stuff we\'re hearing these days quite belies the fact that Jeep eee Ooh! is a $299 (street price) piece of software (I\'m looking ahead and guessing! )

    This often happens with new software, equipment or whatever......Human ingenuity overcomes all and finds ways around achieving what they want to achieve using the tools they have....

    We are hearing pieces from many users which are quite remarkable. It seems to be the result of a combination of mastering GPO, MIDI and their innate talent. Some of the stuff that is coming out now is quite extraordinary....I think that GPO has let the cat out of the bag......IMHO.....

    I couldn\'t agree more. Well, then again... GPO is one great piece of work in itself. Sometimes it scares me how evolved the users are getting and I believe a lot had to do with the contest. There has been a seriousness in everyones work lately that was somewhat there before but now more dominate since the announcement. But from the heart I tell each and everyone of you. You have lifted my ears and awaken my soul back to the glorious sounds inside. I could never be as well of a musician as anyone of you with or without GPO. It\'s a great tool but you would be just as great if had had the chance to write for a live orchestra before GPO. Not belittling GPO. Just stating what I have heard from all of you. I know what I am talking about. I grew up with the sound of the symphony orchestra and a mother who so loved Opera that she sang and exposed us to such great music every day of my life.
    Yes, something IS happening here and it\'s great! And it all has to do with one mans generous dream. Once again...Thank you Mr. Garritan!
    AND YOU PEOPLE ARE AWESOME COMPOSERS WHO DESERVE MUCH MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE!
    Taking a risk here - A little secret. I say a small prayer every night thanking Him for all of you entering my life with your beautiful music! God you people are getting better!
    Thanks.
    Sorry for getting a little emotional....

    I am amazed by the outpouring of remarkable music being sumbitted by GPO Users. I think some of it has to do with the support of users who help others hone their skills, offer ideas and encouragement and bring out the best in people.

    I think most of it is because of our fearless leader. Guess who?

    Aside from everything else is an unbelievable respect and admiration for one another's skills, desires, dreams, personalities, money - oops, how did that get in there? - talent, compositions, and overall musicianship. A desire to learn from one another to be the best you can be.
    I know there is no better bunch of people I have ever had the pleasure to converse with and learn from. My respect is a proud one that I hold dear to my soul for my fellow musicians of all standings in this forum! I wear my GPO shirt proudly and when someone asks, I simply say...Gee, I don't know? No no no, that was another shirt sorry. I tell them like it is. Garritan Personal Orchestra the one and only orchestra for the composer.

    Wat did he say?

    Stynxx,

    Do you really mean that?

    Do you really say that?

    Could we use those words for a GPO anthem? Those words need to be sung by some stout hearted men (sorry Nicole- you are a woman) with some stirring music to sing them too.

    I don't know how you do it Sal!
