    Any chance of a Lute instrument?

    Is there any chance of a Lute being added to GPO Advanced?

    I believe the Lute is an old renaissance instrument, it's a guitar but with a different body, sort of egg-shaped and elongated.

    This would be an awesome instrument when composing classical guitar parts. I love the sound of the Lute, I've got dozens of Lute music pieces, my favourite piece is "My Lord Willoughby's Welcome Home" by Dowland. Absoutely wonderful, the Lute is really great for lullaby music. It's a softer timbre than your typical acoustic guitar, if one were to play the Lute along with a whole heap of acoustic guitars I could pick out the Lute easily.

    So, Garritan, does this instrument sound great to you?

    It might be a bit esoteric to do as part of GPO but it sure would be a cool thing to have, I agree with you!

    Bolder Sounds has some nice renaissance and baroque lutes in the "Best of Bolder" collection...it's giga format but will load into the full version of Kontakt.
