    GARRITAN RELEASES PERSONAL ORCHESTRA 4 – Download Version!

    This may not be news to those here but it's time to make this official.... (I like this release, then announce approach)
    ------------------------


    GARRITAN RELEASES PERSONAL ORCHESTRA® 4.0 – Download Version
    Now featuring the new ARIA Sample Player and select Project SAM Brass Instruments.

    Orcas Island, USA (August 11, 2009)Garritan has announced that the new 4th edition of its Personal Orchestra® collection is available in a download version. The world’s most popular orchestral library just got better! Garritan Personal Orchestra 4 is now powered by the ARIA Instrument Engine and adds new features, new instrument sounds and updated programming at a lower price. Existing users of previous versions of Personal Orchestra can download the upgrade for only $49.95. New customers can purchase and get it for $149.95.

    What's New in GPO 4.0
    New ARIA Advanced Instrument Engine – ARIA, a new and highly-optimized instrument engine, developed in collaboration with Plogue Art et Technologie Inc, goes beyond ordinary samplers. ARIA is intuitive, efficient and versatile, loads instruments quickly, and places very low demand on your computer’s processor.
    New Price - Instant Download! - GPO4 is affordable, eco-friendly, and available on demand. Simply download and play. The entire GPO4 sample collection can be downloaded with a fast internet connection, dramatically reducing the product’s environmental impact and eliminating the waiting time associated with shipping.
    Additional Sounds, Project SAM Brass & Ensemble Presets - GPO4 includes select brass samples from Project SAM that strengthen the brass section of Personal Orchestra by adding punch and excitement to your musical compositions. GPO4 also includes choir sounds, extended ranges for select instruments and Ensemble Presets.
    Auto Legato - GPO4's new Auto Legato intelligently detects when you are playing a smooth line with overlapping notes and automatically applies correct legato transitions between notes. Creating realistic phrasing has never been easier. Auto Legato also makes playable trills extremely easy.
    Integrated Ambience Reverb & Stereo Stage - GPO4 now integrates the high quality Ambience reverb with the ARIA Player with individual mixing sends for each instrument. Stereo Stage imparts spacious stereo imagery for GPO4 instruments.
    MIDI Playback and Recording Features -The Standalone ARIA Player allows you to load and playback MIDI files. You can also produce audio recordings of the MIDI file or record yourself playing live.
    Designed for Compatibility - GPO4 runs on both Macintosh and Windows and a variety of formats to fit your workstation and your workflow (VST, Pro Tools RTAS, and OSX Audio Units). It natively supports 64-bit platforms, works in Windows 7, and is programmed for Steinberg's new VST Expression, which simplifies the use of musical articulations. GPO4 is further optimized for use with the AKAI EWI Wind Controllers and integrates with popular notation programs such as Finale 2010.
    Tunings and Scala File Support - Put GPO4 exactly in tune with your ideas. The ARIA Instrument Engine supports control over individual instrument tuning, the frequency serving as the overall pitch standard, and Scala definition files, a standardized format for scale degree tunings.
    Graceful & Easy Authorization - ARIA authorization employs a personalized digital keycard. Simply drag and drop the personalized graphic card onto the ARIA Instrument Engine to authorize it and get playing in seconds.
    Garritan Personal Orchestra is an award-winning high-quality orchestral library that has become the industry standard. It has developed an enthusiastic following for its versatility and ability to create realistic sounding orchestral music quickly and easily.

    The new version features the ARIA Instrument Engine, Garritan's powerful new 64-bit Sampler/Synthesis Engine, developed in collaboration with Plogue. The ARIA engine and Garritan soundware have been rigorously tested and are widely used in products by Microsoft, SONY, AKAI, MakeMusic (Finale) and other industry leaders.

    Gary some people come into this world to imporve the human condition. What you have given the world of music and its present and future composers is the greatest gift any would be composer could ever dream of. What you may not know is that I was at the end of my ropes with life and all the pain and suffering I had endured. I actually wanted no more part of this life then I found MakeMusic's Print Music which led me to Finale. I can not remember when or why I was intruduced to Garritan Personal Orchestra, but when I discovered it, I discovered a reason to live. When I heard the sample instruments and realized I could compose something on the computer using notation software and then hear what it would sound like with a real orchestral sound I knew that life would be better than the death I was contemplating.

    Thank you Mr. Gary Garritan for following your dream so that the rest of us could follow ours. You are a giant among men. In the fullness of time history will look back on this time and say that Gary Garritan was truly a great man of vision.

    A real winner, Gary. Thank you for making this possible.

    Now, anyone can compose for full orchestra and many can
    make it happen on just ONE computer. Your dream is
    being realized and your contribution to making music is
    unparalled.

    Samantha,

    Your words touched me very deeply. It's not often I am speechless. This is one of those times. Thank you.

    It is people like you that make it all the more worthwhile. Music truly is one of the greatest gifts in life.

    All my best,

    Gary
