    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.

    Hello Gary,

    Well, huge congratulations on a very special achievement.

    This must be a landmark in the Garritan company and it can only go from strength to strength.

    Well done.

    Do you need to have your current version of Garritan Personal Orchestra installed for the upgrade to work, or is this a completely new install?

    Peace

    I was looking at the GPo4 sounds list and see Stradivari solo violin and Gofriller Cello in there. Are these the same as those standalone versions that use to be around?

    I have GP02 that I bought a few years back but never use. GP04 may be a cool deal, especially with the upgrade price.

    The Strad and Gofriller are not the same as the standalone versions. They are the original scaled down ones from the original GPO.

    If are looking for something like the original stand-alone versions of Stradivari solo violin and Gofriller cello, look for Garritan Orchestral Strings 2 when they're released. In the announcement it said they will include solo strings and I believe these are something that are at least on par with the original (now discontinued) stand-alone versions (and probably even better).
