In the big Sweetwater catalogue that came in the mail before Christmas, I'm surprised to see display ads for both the General MIDI and Marching Band libraries. There's no indication anywhere in the ads that the programs aren't released yet--The impression is that they are available along with the rest of the Garritan program family also advertised on the same page.

I thought maybe I'd snoozed and missed the release dates!

When the two libraries Do come out, I'm looking forward to hearing from users. In the best of all worlds, I'd own every Garritan product and pick new ones up without having to be sold--because using GPO and JABB has me easily convinced that I've never used better MIDI instruments.

Hope to hear from GM and Marching Band users asap so I can share in their excitement.
