    Garritan and other leading developers to support Steinberg's new VST Expression

    Garritan, Vienna Symphonic Library and Sonic Reality to support VST Expression

    Hamburg/Anaheim, NAMM Show -
    Steinberg has announced that leading sample content and instrument manufacturers have committed to support for its new VST Expression technology. Already integrated into the new Cubase 5, VST Expression is a new system that dramatically simplifies composing with large sample libraries within Cubase, streamlining the way today's massive virtual orchestras and highly detailed instrument libraries are used in the context of creative composition for scores and songs.

    Arnd Kaiser, Steinberg's Product Planning Manager for Music Technology, had this to say, "With virtual and hardware instruments becoming more and more expressive it has been time to provide a more flexible and more elegant solution for recording and editing sounds with multiple articulations. This is what VST Expression is all about. But it's not only a great way to record, edit and score orchestral instrument sounds. It's a powerful tool for any sound generator and a new creative platform for more expressive instruments we might see in the future."

    VST Expression drastically simplifies handling of articulations and expressions for advanced virtual instruments, large sample libraries and hardware sound generators. The new technology[COLOR=darkgreen ! important][/color] makes recording and editing articulation commands much easier, with all articulation data displayed separately in both track inspector and editor windows. VST Expression is part of the new Cubase 5, the latest version of Steinberg's Advanced Music Production System and is compatible with any VST or MIDI instrument. Steinberg's premium orchestral sample instrument HALion Symphonic Orchestra also supports VST Expression. Garritan, Vienna Symphonic Library and Sonic Reality to support VST Expression

    Hi

    As a Cubase user and soon to be Garritan GPO ARIA user...this is great news.

    VST Expression looks set to be an exciting/useful concept.

    When Cubase 5 becomes available shortly, we'll be able to experiment with VST Expression using the included HALion One Sound set and the bundled demo of HALion Symphonic Orchestra.

    The burning question is I guess, how difficult is it to make a VST Instrument "VST Expression ready" and how far down the track will we see this feature being part of the Garritan GPO ARIA ?

    Cheers

    When is the ARIA-based GPO 4 with Cubase 5 Expression sets expected to arrive?

    I'm really excited about this - can't wait to put it to use in Cubase 5.

    Yes, this is excellent news. As a GPO and JABB user, VST Expression is going to save me a lot of time, so thanks to Garritan for giving support so quickly.

    Hey Gary,
    The press release just says Garritan. I'm hoping that means that more than GPO will be supported. Will products like GOS2 be supported also?
