    New With GPO

    Hello Forum,

    Just got GPO yesterday 9/14/06. Using Logic and opened well as AU. Nothing to report as far as the way it functions yet as being anything abnormal or not working. My question is: I'm very much into the string arranging of Claus Ogerman, Don Sebesky, even Jimmy Webb's string arranging all the classic jazz/pop arrangers. Suggestion for the sounds (strings-solo or section) to use to reproduce these types of string arrangements? I know this is a very broad question, just hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have a lot of older arrangements that I would like to edit into PO string sounds. So.......looking forward to using the program. Awesome! Tim Jennens

    Welcome to the family!
    There is a list of tutorials on the Garritan home page. Here's a link to ensemble building for strings that may help.

    Or, you can scan the tutorials and decide for yourself.

    Hi Tim,


    I saw your mention of Claus Ogerman and immediately brought SYMBIOSIS. He did that with Bill Evans. My favorite album.CD ever! While I don't have any specific answers to your question, I suggest starting out small. Work on something simple, and learn GPO just as you would learn a musical instrument. Experiment with all of the controllers, try the ensemble building, just did in and get your feet wet. Have fun.

    Tim,

    welcome to the forum. If there is ever a question don't hesitate to ask. There are quite some specialists for strings around here.

    Welcome aboard,Tim!

    Just a side comment, but I found it helpful when I first
    got GPO to spend several hours simply reviewing and
    exercising each and every instrument... so I had some
    feel for what each could do.

    Best,
