    Standard - Notation

    Could anybody give me an explanation
    what kind of difference is there between
    the Standard and the Notation instruments
    I have been told already that there is one
    but I could not find anything so far.

    Hey Robert. Welcome to the forum.

    Can you elaborate on your question? I can't tell exactly what you mean by "Standard" and "Notation" instruments.

    Thanks,

    "Notation" instruments have been programmed in a way that lets them work effectively with notation programs, such as Finale or Sibelius. The main difference is that they use CC68 instead of CC64 to activate legato.

    LOL. I was thinking (or arguably not thinking) more academically.

    Thanks Dan and Michael for answering Robert's question.

    Hello Robert,

    The Notation set of instruments in Garritan libraries is for use in the notation Editor Finale whereas the standard set is for use in the stand-alone version or in sequencers such as Sonar.

    The reason Finale requires its own set (the 'Notation' set) is that Finale saves all Key Switches as MIDI notes 0-11 and the Notation set's legato CC is CC#68, which is Finale's standard GPO legato CC. Only the Notation set will respond to these.

    Unless you are using Finale, you need to use the 'Standard' set.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Standard - Notation

    thank you all
    that clears things up to me
    I am just beginning to use GPO4 and so far its amazing ...
    The seq I'm using is Cubase 5 and at the moment I''m setting
    up its VST Expression to my needs.
    If I understood everything correctly I should use
    the 'standard'-instrument list.

    That's great, glad it's explained things for you. Ohhh .. there's one or two of us in the community who also find GPO4 and Aria amazing.

    Hello Alex BG,

    I have never used Notation so I'm not sure. At a guess I would say use the 'Standard' set but I'll try and found out for certain.

    In the meantime, it would be good if one of our Notation user members could clarify.
