It's safe to say the future of the GOS2 project is very unclear. I doubt if anyone here has any info more definite than that. My impression is that Gary wants to re-release it at some point, but there's nothing scheduled in its development that I'm aware of.
His priority is moving all his current libraries into Aria, and that process is getting near to completion. That means that following in the steps of GPO and JABB, soon you'll have the Aria-ized COMB and the all-new Garritan World library.
I recall Gary addressing the issue of GOS 2 many months ago. He mentioned that with the release of LASS, the planned release of EW's new Hollywood Strings, among others (CS), it was simply not the right time to release yet another new string library. The field was simply far too crowded for yet another new release.
I would guess that any new strings library is now quite a long ways off.
No, I use the term 'user' in a fairly loose sense - I haven't used it for a few years now, hence the enquiry about GOS2. I always particularly liked the feel and tone of GOS 1 and miss it, even though I now have newer libraries (VSL, LASS and EWQL).
There was a kind of intimacy and realism to the GOS library that I feel has been a little lost (LASS comes closest IMO) in newer libraries.
Oh well. I wish Gary luck with his other products and will hope for GOS2 one fine day.
To be honest, I think the companies time would be better spent doing a different type of library. I think it would be kind of pointless to try and compete with HollyWood strings, as I just can't see a Garritan product sounding like that. (maybe that's just the impression I got from using the somewhat synthy strings in the finale garritan bundle)
On the other hand, while I don't feel that strings are Garritans strong point, I am a HUGE fan of their woodwinds. Now... if they would just make a orchestral woodwinds complete with hyper realistic sections (while the solo instruments are great, I've always felt the sections sounded a little synthy), I don't think I could resist.
