Dear Mr. Garritan: First of all I want to thank you for creating such wonderful and useful tools as GPO and JABB (I have both). I use them in a daily basis as a professional arranger and musical producer.
I am sending you this email after reading at Garritan's webpage the information regarding Los Angeles Ballet production of The Nutcracker, where live players are combined with GPO.
As I am facing a similar situation with a musical production that needs more musicians than an orchestra pit can accomodate, I would like to know -if possible- how this task was technically approached in terms of sound reinforcement?, were the conductor and any other musicians following a click track?, how was the GPO monitored at pit itself?, how has the sound routed from the DAW (in this case Cakewalk)?, and any other information than could be useful.
Many thanks in advance and best wishes.
