    Marching Band Comparison (Not Garritan Marching Band)

    Hey everyone,

    While working on a project, I decided to compare the different tools in my arsenal. So, I made recordings of the same tune played with four different "instruments"; GPO, Kontakt Gold (Sibelius), Native Instruments Bandstand, and Sound Blaster Audigy 2.

    I thought it was pretty neat to compare them.

    Here they are if anyone wants to listen;

    I vote for GPO. The others sounded very much like something I would hear on a cartoon show

    I love hearing head-on comparisons like this, Jonny;
    it really tells one a great deal, I think. Thank you
    for posting these.

    All the various sound resources have their uses and
    strong points, certainly.

    With Gary, though -- I'd definitely go for the GPO
    on this one... hands down!
