    Difference between GPO v3 and the original GPO (from 2005 Group Buy)?

    This question may seem obvious to many of you... but I have not been following all the updates on the GPO for the last two years or so.

    I have the GPO "Group Buy" edition from 2005 - which is essentially the full GPO minus Kontakt player. I am now seeing the current GPO being referred as "v3". What is the main upgrade or update to this new "version 3" comparing to the GPO version I have? BTW, does that make my GPO "v2"? (I didn't even know that )

    I have tried searching the forum but could not find any good answer. Sorry if this question has been covered (maybe long time) before.

    Hi Noteship,

    Here's the breakdown:
    Version 1 comes on 4 CDs and has KP1.
    Version 2 comes on 1 DVD and has KP1.
    Version 3 comes on 1 DVD and has KP2.

    The 2005 Group Buy did include the Kontakt Player. What it did not include were the extras (Overture SE and Cubasis VST). These extras were removed by Version 2 anyhow.

    As you can see, version 3 is the first to run on Kontakt Player 2. This is a free upgrade for all registered users of GPO. If you haven't yet updated to KP2, you can do so by following the instructions through your login accounts on the NI website and Service Center application. Basically, you request a new serial number for KP2, download the installer, get the serial by email, and you're good to go.

    Best,
    Reegs

    No, V2 still had KP1. V3 is the KP2 update.

    You are correct. That was a typo on my part. I know it was, and that's what I was thinking, but my finger must have hit 2 by mistake (it was late). I have edited the original post. Thanks for pointing that out, Craig.

    Didn't 'version 2' also introduce all these?
    - new AG patches
    - different cc codes for timbre/pitch variation
    - full strings patches
    - playable tremeloes and trills
    - playable 'rolls'
    - vibrato and portamento controls....

    Or were all those part of a 1.x update - I don't remember.
