I'm new here, but have now gotten Garritan Studio and GPO working with Sibelius and Logic -- though only after switching back to my old Mac PowerBook until there's a universal binary version of GPO based on the brand new version of Kontakt from NI.
I'm working on a string quartet and have a section where several of the instruments play pitches outside the "normally accepted" range for violin or 'cello (i.e., higher, way up past the end of the fingerboard [e.g., 'cello 4 octaves above middle C] -- quite dramatic).
I know these notes are possible, because the piece was premiered by the Minguet Quartet in Cologne Germany earlier this month, and the old Kontakt Silver sample set that shipped with Sibelius played it as well (though the samples sounded like crap, which is why I'm learning GPO). The EXS built-in sounds also play these pitches.
GPO plays silence for these notes.
Does anyone have a work-around that's easier than splicing in the sound from the old Kontakt Silver sample set for these measures?
...any assistance appreciated...
