    I already have the original GPO as well the GPO Pocket Orchestra that is part of Dimension Pro. I purchased the refill a couple of days ago and I have to say that this is my favorite incarnation of this sample material.

    The most obvious differences; the mod wheel volume control is the opposite of the behavior of the plugin version ('loud" is with the wheel in the down position). No longer does the plugin start in silence after you've loaded an instrument. Also, there are versions of the solo patches that have round-robin programming. This adds to the realism. There are also 'velocity' versions of the patches for existing sequences.

    I would suggest that Gary make the manual available online so that people can make a more informed purchase, though at $79 it's the most incredible value you'll get for an 'impulse buy'.

    A side note; this material works wonderfully when it's combined with the Miroslav Ensemble Strings and Percussion refills as well as the Orkester refill. Reason is now a very viable platform for orchestral work.
