    stradivari and gofriller in GPO...

    I'm seriously considering purchasing the Garritan Personal Orchestra, and I have a little question. I noticed that on the instrument list there is a Stradivari solo violin and a Gofriller solo cello. Are these the same instrument samplings that are being sold seperately? There's a Stradivarius violin pack and a Gofriller cello pack, are these included within GPO? If not, how does the quality compare between the GPO versions and the stand-alone versions?

    i thought the GPO solo violins were really good, then i got the strad and gofriller. they are absolutely the most amazing virtual instruments i have ever played. if you search the internet you can find them for about 150-160 each, but thats still a lot of money. i'd say you should try out GPO first, then if you feel like you need an incredible violin and cello go for it. i promise that you won't be disappointed.

    The Stradivari and Gofriller in GPO is a small subset of an extensive recording of these instruments. A more extensive set of these recordings were used in the Stradivari Solo Violin and the Gofriller Cello which used more samples of the same recordings and, of course, a great deal of real-time control using Giorgio's and Stefano's processes. The we have many more recorded samples of these instruments which may be used in the future.
