I've come across so many posts from people on other forums, trashing GPO and the other Garritan libraries.
I find this strange and somehow, incredibly unprofessional (a lot of these people deem themselves "professionals" in the world of sampling - in other words, they write music for game mods).
The latest comment was that "GPO isn't highly regarded in the sample industry". Now, how does one respond to something like that?
Obviously, I don't think that the Garritan libraries are THE most SINGLE realistic and PERFECT sample libraries on the market EVER made...
Sure there are some libraries that have better sounding instruments. They also cost a couple grand each... and not to forget, a TINY bit harder to use.
So why this apparent animosity towards the Garritan libraries? Why do people feel this need to lob "in passing" insults at them? (and by implication, those who use them)
It's beyond me.
