I am thinking of buying Garritan to work with Sonar 6XL I have.
The other products I am looking at are EastWest Gold.
GPO looks more interesting to me because of the price, but I am put off a bit because someone told me that I have to use the mod-wheel for volume control and not go off key-velocity. Is this right?
(I like to play two-handed!)
Also, one other question is: how much work do I have to do "in post"? Eg: add reverb, work with panning etc etc to get it to sound really good.
Has anyone got any comments? (I don't know yet how to manipulate panning etc to achieve higher quality, other the other post effects I have to add)
(ps: I am a video editor really (!) with some music knowledge and don't consider myself more than intermediate skill level. I'd like to produce good soundtracks for my videos.)
