I am totally new to GPO. I splurged and picked up a copy of GPO so that I could fiddle around at composing some music and see what I could do. This is how newbie I am -- I did not know until after I installed it that I needed another program to record my work, mix it, save it, etc. After some further digging, I picked up a copy of Sonar LE -- not the newest and best, but something that I thought would get the job done.
I've now installed Sonar LE, and I can't find a way of recording anything out of GPO into Sonar. What am I missing? I'm sure it's either absurdly simple or massively complicated, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
You may need to have Sonar rescan the plugin folder in order to see that GPO is there.
Is GPO in the same folder that Triangle and the other instrument is in?
Sonar needs to know where to find the instruments.
I don't use Sonar so I don't know the particulars.
OK. I've gone into Sonar's plugin manager. I can add new locations to it. I use Windows Vista; looking in c:/program files/x86/ I found "gpo kp2 library" with several subfolders, including "instruments". I selected "instruments" and did a new vst scan, but I still can't "insert/soft synth/ GPO". I'm relatively experienced in using computers, but this one has me scratching my head.
BTW -- thanks in advance for the help, everyone. I can't wait to get this all up and running so I can get to work!
Meanwhile -- while trying to fiddle around in GPO Kontakt Player 2, somehow I got it so that instruments are all playing together just within GPO. I add a trumpet to a piano, and somehow they're all playing together. Er... Now what have I gone and done?! Remember, I am a total newbie... I feel rather dull-witted right now!
I don't use Sonar either, but I am trying to help you if I can....
what you need to do is look at the extension of drop zone and triangle II, see if you can find them with .dll after the name, once you find the folder that contains those .dll files, you need to find the Kontakt 2 player .dll then copy it, and paste it into the same folder that contains drop zone.dll and TriangleII.dll.
Then rescan, or close Sonar, reboot Vista, and then see if Sonar finds KP2/GPO.
Also, it is a little confusing, but GPO is not listed as GPO, but rather "Kontakt Player 2" or KP2 or something like that. That is because Kontakt2 Player is the name of the sample player (made by Native Instruments).
