    Uninstall Original GPO Library?

    All of y'all,

    Since it appears that the GPO4 duplicates all of the original GPO library, would it be safe for me to uninstall the original GPO in its entirety in order to reclaim some disk space?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Thanks,

    Larry, yes you can safely do that if you need to save space.

    I would keep the old library to load older sequences in if needed. There are some differences in programming between the 2 libraries including differences in volume, panning, etc. So to be compatible with your older stuff, just hold on to the older Kontakt version for now.

    Good thinking, Mister Jim! I am glad that you brought that to my attention. I will let it stay where it is.

    Actually, I always loaded the GPO instruments directly into the full-scale Kontakt 3, not the Kontakt player.

    Thanks very much.

    Just one question:
    Is the GPO4 upgrade a full version, so I can uninstall all previous GPO versions (incl. libraries) before I install GPO4 ?
    In my case there's no need to go back to a previous version.

    yes, it is a complete GPO library with additional SAM brass sounds.

    A note to my fellow Finale users on this general theme...

    For sake of heritage .mus files, you may want to hold
    onto your older versions of GPO, space permitting.

    While it's not a major task to "re-instrument" an older
    .mus file with GPO 4 -- something I did quite success-
    fully during beta of GPO 4 -- it does take some time
    and tinkering to get everything balanced.

    If and when you do choose to update older .mus files
    to GPO 4 instruments and the Aria player, though, I
    believe you'll be quite pleased with the results.

    Best,



    David
