    GPO editions: 2nd vs. 3rd; & upgrading from 2nd

    I was very excited when GPO 4th edition was announced, and I await its release anxiously. Right now I own GPO 2nd edition, and I'll admit I was definitely surprised at the new "4th edition" as I was completely unaware that a 3rd edition even existed. I do consider myself pretty aware and up-to-date on the latest in available sound libraries, so I did find it odd that I hadn't heard of the 3rd edition before -- more so that Garritan never sent any promotional emails about it (at least I never got any). I did a ton of Googling and couldn't find any documentation whatsoever on exactly what the differences between the 2nd and 3rd editions are. More instruments? Better control?

    Also, I fully intend to purchase GPO 4th edition when it comes out, and I know of the $50 upgrade, which is really awesome. However, I'm concerned about which versions of GPO qualify for the upgrade. Would it only apply to its predecessor -- the 3rd edition -- or is the upgrade available to users of the 2nd edition? I'll be honest, I would feel a bit cheated if the former is only true, considering the lack of information and promotion of GPO 3rd edition. I'd appreciate the help!

    You qualify. The third edition signifies that the product ships with Kontakt Player 2, so if you've made that upgrade, you're on Version 3.

    Aha! Yes, I did make the upgrade to KP2, so that's good to hear. Thank you!
