As many of you know we have a unique demo page for GPO that includes over 1,000 user demos.
Personally I like showcasing the music of users. To hear all the terrific music made with this library gives me a sense of personal satisfaction. Also, it's honest and gives people a proper perspective of what the library can do (rather than the practice of hiring pros to make super-polished demos).
Lately I have been receiving comments that people are getting overwhelmed and confused when visiting the demo page because there's so much there. (Could this be like Mozart's too many notes, I wonder?).
We are working on updating the Garritan website and we are faced with a choice. Should we:
Simplify or limit the demos on the GPO Demo Page
Continue to showcase all the GPO Artists and continue to add more Demos
Is there another solution? Or even a better way the demos can be presented.
Was the fact that we showcase user demos a factor in your deciding to get GPO and to be part of this forum? Or does the Listening Room serve the purpose of showcasing your work instead of the Demo page on the Garritan website?
JABB, Strad and the Cello have a small selection demos on the product page itself mostly because they are more niche products and have not been out as long as GPO. Therefore there are not as many demos but less to choose from.
I thought it would be a good time to consider the direction of the Demo Page and get your input.
Thanks in advance for your help.
