It was about a year ago that I found myself laid off and out of a job. With free time on my hands (for a change!), I was lured to the Garritan forum by users (most notably Mike Kelley) requesting specific MFX plugins for GPO.
Gary Garritan, in his inestimable wisdom, seized the opportunity and indoctrinated me into his cult by sending me a complimentary copy of GPO.
I've been hooked ever since. The majority of my plugins in the past year have been for GPO and GOS, and remain 100% free for the Garritan user community. Of all of his skills and virtues, perhaps his most powerful is his foresight in investing in the future well-being and success of his products and users, rather than keeping a myopic eye on current profits.
