    Thumbs up GPO Group Buy Final Tally - 1,307 GPOs - Another NS Success Story

    The GPO Group Buy turned out to be more successful than we expected with last minute subscribers pushing the numbers -- a total of 1,307 copies of GPO sold! AFAIK, this is far and away the largest number of people to participate in a sample library/VI group buy.



    I learned a great deal in the process. The important thing is to work with distributors and the relationships developed. Time and Space was wonderful in doing a simulteneous promotion which worked out very well for everyone. In getting the word out I also had the opportunity to know people from some of the other forums which was a real treat. I also experienced first-hand how good things are at Northern Sounds. I wish Michiel Post success in his Group Buy going on now and to other developers who will follow.

    It's great that the number of members at Northern Sounds (and the GPO forum) will be increasing. I am looking forward to the increase in talent and more great music. And it is my hope that as more people enter the world of sampling that they will gravitate to other libraries.

    The number of subscriptions took us by surprise. We never imagined it would be this many (I guess not everybody already owned GPO ). We are working as hard as we can to get all the orders processed. There was a manufacturing glitch that set us back but things are back on track.

    My biggest "thank you" to those who were a part of the Group Buy. I know that many of you spoke to friends and were active in spreading the work and thanks for your help in making this a successful event. And thanks especially to PapaChalk and DeSound for their generosity and for hosting this most successful Group Buy.

    well it's all thanks to you gary, I've never seen a developer and/or owner talking to his own customers and replying to them. I came here simply curious and after seeing you conduct yourself I am now a proud owner of GPO, well not yet anyway but hopefully it arrives soon.

    Wow Gary, this is tremendous.

    I must admit that, at 139 $US, the GPO quality/price ratio is incredible.

    Well done!

    As a dedicated user of GPO, and one that has had success in promoting an orchestra score (Nightwinds)with it, I purchased two more copies in the group buy; one for my computer at the church I work at and another for home.

    This way I can get my install back from the church and I'll have 4 installs for home. I plan on distributing over at least 3 computers and keep one install in reserve.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    WOW!!

    almost 200k in a month, not a bad gig Gary at all!!

    Seriously, you guys deserve it. You have an awesome little library in GPO and at $139, anyone even remotely interested in orchestral samples would be crazy not to pick it up.

    I still am amazed , over a year later ,at the quality and flexibility you have put in the package.Congratulations and further success!

    Now we wait for GPO Advanced...
