For Immediate Release:
Garritan Announces the GOFRILLER SOLO Cello
Created by Giorgio Tommasini, Stefano Lucato and Gary Garritan
Groundbreaking Sonic Morphing Technology Provides Monumental Realism and Expression
NAMM, Anaheim, CA (January 18, 2007) — Garritan today showed the Gofriller Solo Cello, the latest software instrument using the revolutionary ‘sonic morphing’ process. This Solo Cello software instrument, created by an Italian team in collaboration with Garritan, expands the company’s solo instrument series following the release of the Stradivari Solo Violin.
The Gofriller Solo Cello represents a major step forward in software musical instrument technology and provides a level of realism and expression in the industry. “Following the success of the Stradivari Solo Violin, there has been great interest in other instruments using the Sonic Morphing Technology”, says Gary Garritan.
This new instrument integrates the Native Instruments Kontakt 2 sample player and can be used as a standalone instrument, as a VST, DXi, RTAS or Audio Units plug-in, and can be used with supported notation programs like Finale 2007.
Gofriller Cellos (made nearly three hundred years ago) are among the finest cellos ever made and are known for the rich and beautiful tone. Thanks to the exclusive "Sonic Morphing" technology, this sampled Gofriller Cello lets you seamlessly crossfade among dynamics (pp to ff), continuously control the onset, rate and speed of the vibrato, and shape articulations in real time. The result of these technologies is extraordinary levels of realism, expressiveness and virtuosic performance capabilities in a way that preserves the natural characteristics of the Gofriller Cello. This instrument leaps to life beneath your fingertips!
The Gofriller is priced at $199 and available sonn after the NAMM show.
