My girlfriend just ordered what she believes is a woodwind library from garritan, as a gift for my birthday. It will be here in about a week. I wasn't at the store when the salesman gave his pitch, and she's not exactly savvy with this stuff, so I have a couple of questions about it that garritan.com has failed to answer:
What is it??? I can't find a woodwind collection by garritan anywhere on the site. Is it a seperately available chunk of GPO??
Is it really giga 3 compatible, as the salesguy told her? Nobody in my corner of the world is using sampling (midi, even) at the level possible with current soft-samplers, so even the music store "specialists" tend to talk through theire a-holes about the stuff. They don't have any demand for the stuff, so they don't really know just what these products are or what they do.
I have no dout that whatever this product is, it is of great quality. The name of garritan carries an undeniable degree of esteem. But I am worried that my poor girlfriend got duped by a know-nothing into ordering a library that may not be that useful to me.
Is there a "Garritan Woodwinds" library? Is it giga-compatible? If so, where can I find out what it contains? I'm both exited about this and worried.
