    Thumbs up GPO receives 'Association of Independent Feature Film Producers' Distinction

    GPO has received the 'Association of Independent Feature Film Producers' RECOMMENDED distinction!


    The Association of Independent Feature Film Producers (AIFFP) is a Hollywood, California based Non-Profit Educational and Advocacy Organization that is dedicated to the advancement of the independent feature film industry.

    Barry C. Collin, President of the Association of Independent Feature Film Producers states: "From the vast array of products we reviewed, GPO was a clear leader".

    Here are some excerpts from an AIFFP special feature "Music For Film": (http://www.aiffp.org/filmmusic02.html)


    "As filmmakers, we are so often looking through the lens at what our audience will see that we neglect that which our audience will hear. So many of our members have produced great films, only to subjugate the soundtrack to second-tier status. Whether that is due to oversight or simply not budgeting enough for the music, the result is the same: a film with far less impact and salability...The problem historically has been the cost of creating a custom soundtrack. A studio full of musicians is no small expense. And that expense generally is out of range for an independent production. Fortunately, that problem truly became history with the advent of inexpensive, great-sounding software-based synthesizers and sound packages...


    We looked at an endless number of packages, and while there are many options, we decided to present the ones we feel will best serve the filmmaker, and can provide you with some extraordinary results. One note of caution: most all of these packages require Windows XP, and there are other minimum and suggested requirements. Be certain to check each package's requirements before buying to make certain you have what you need to make these packages work.

    First and foremost, we have to recommend the Garritan Personal Orchestra (GPO). Probably the most amazing value ever, GPO brings you the true sound of a full orchestra -- not the cheesey, electronic sound that just about every other sythesizer (software or hardware based) puts out. It will absolutely blow you away in its quality. If you can't have a full real orchestra, GPO is definitely the next best thing.

    You'll need a keyboard that has a Modulation controller, like the MK-449C above for the unique user interface of GPO. You can see and hear an interactive demo of GPO by clicking here.

    The truly greatest part, besides the sound, is the introductory price of only $249. This is a no-compromise solution for any film music maker."

    Well Done!

    Once other sample add ons, like the 'big band,' celtic, etc... are released, I wouldn't be surprised to see many more film and tv makers picking it up.
