Yes, I am an utter nuby. The extent of my familiarity with Garritan is that I use Sibelius through it, although I will say that I did master keyswitching before Sibelius automated the process. Anyway, here's my question. I just got a midi keyboard to see if inputting into Sibelius is faster that way. I thought it might be fun to be able to play the keyboard through Garritan, so, for example, now I am writing a string quartet - wouldn't it be neat to improvise on the keyboard and have the Garritan violin, viola, and cello sounding? Perhaps I could assign each instrument to a certain octave or something. I would like there to be 8 voice polyphony. If someone can help get me going with that I would be much obliged.
