Many of you have been patient in waiting for new releases and updates and I thought I would let you know where we're at with various projects.
GPO, JABB and Stradivari Updates to MacIntel and Kontakt 2 Player...
Gofriller Cello, Marching Band and General MIDI...
The K2 version with Universal Binary compatibility has been delayed
and Native Instruments states
that they now expect Mac Intel Compatibility November 2006. On their forum NI posted
: "We realize that we scheduled this release for October, and while we do have an in-house version of 2.2 that is running quite well, a couple of important bugs cropped up at the last minute and we feel it is very important to make sure they are fixed before release to make sure they don't interfere with your work."
After all the bugs are fixed and it is released (sometime in the next few weeks, I believe) we plan to port to K2 both GPO and JABB. We can't proceed to that step until we have the working version in our hands. Once we have completed the port (shouldn't take too long - the preliminary work is already done) we will need to do some testing and then they will be released to our users. The Universal Binary version will be a free downloadable update
to existing GPO and JABB and Stradivari 2.0 users.
 As Robert points out, Finale 2007 compatibility with the Stradivari 2 (and Gofriller) is expected.
Likewise we are also waiting for the MacIntel compatible version If all goes well, we hope to have these available by the holidays. The finishing touches are being put on these libraries. Of course more player bugs, unexpected surprises or Murphy's Law can destroy these best laid plans.GPO Christmas Album 2006
Pollata Viola, Amati Bass (solo string quartet), GOS2, The Authorized Steinway Piano ...
DP Dan is working very hard on this album and it's going to be fantastic. Last year's album was a huge success and this year's may be even better. Thanks to those who are contributing and sharing their music. We'll have some CD's pressed and send them out so you can enjoy the holidays with music from our forum friends.
These will hopefully be available early in the new year. Hopefully most, if not all, will be shown at NAMM. We may have some surprises at NAMM as well. GPO Advanced and the Super Secret Projects - early to mid 2007
So that's the latest right now. Thanks for your patience. Let me know if you have any questions and I will answer what I can.
