Could somebody please tell me a few of the important <fundamental> distinctions between the way GS3 works with Vienna etc. samples versus the way the sample player (Kontakt ?) bundled in Garritan Personal Orchestra works with GPO samples. And what are the resultant implications making one "better" - more polyphony, less latency, better quality samples, etc., etc.
I'm considering GS3 and GPO and what the extra $250 buys you in terms of just the sample player and samples that is hearable or makes usability, versatility with more samples or whatever (e.g. not simply that one has midi notation, one doesn't, or more VST plugins, etc.).
Does GS3 do true hard disk streaming of huge samples but GPO relies more on real memory, does one have higher quality or longer samples, or what ? I don't get it.
