    Intuitive Controls— The Garritan World Instruments Library is designed with playability and expressive control in mind. It features controls for dynamics, vibrato, keyswitched bends and tremolos, rolls, arpeggios, airflow noises, legato, auto-variability, auto-portamento, trills and more that make these samples realistic and expressive. Many of the controls in Garritan World Instruments are streamlined and standardized so that users can quickly become familiar with the library.

    Ensembles and Groups—Access various sections and groupings, from traditional Chinese orchestras, Gamelan ensembles, Taiko groups, drumming circles to eclectic Bollywood bands, folk bands, or create any group of your choosing. The Ensemble Manager makes it easy to load pre-configured and user-created templates.

    Sample Player Included—The World Instruments library comes integrated with the ARIA Player and works as a virtual instrument. There is no need to purchase a separate sampler. The ARIA Player uses Graceful Copy Protection and does not need a dongle to operate. Simply drag and drop the personalized graphic card onto the ARIA Instrument Engine to authorize it and get playing in seconds.

    Instantly Downloadable! - Garritan World Instruments is affordable, eco-friendly, and available on demand. Simply download and play. There's no shipping, no waiting, and no box to discard. Downloadable instruments represent a small step toward a better earth – but a giant step for creativity.

    Suited for Every Musician—Professional composers can use this collection for quickly sketching parts involving ethnic instruments and to capture creative ideas. Hobbyists can use it to explore the world of world instrumentation. Students can use it to score projects and to study world music and ethnomusicology.

    Congratulations! This is a fantastic addition to the Garritan arsenal!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Wow, looking at the pdf files and listening to the demos seems you've out done yourself once again! Looking over the instrument list and comparing to other libraries, the value on this is just stunning

    Just bought and downloaded, can't wait to get it loaded and play with it

    Mr. etLux,

    I believe there is a basic flaw in your math...

    Correction: the true cost per instrument in the World Instruments library is

    42.843 cents


    In Life, the Universe and Everything, it has been confirmed that 42 (+- 0.843) is indeed the Ultimate Answer.

    Further Proof
    Take x and multiply by 42.843 then divide by x you end up with 42.843
    42.843 = x*42.843/x.

    Prof. Garritan

    Prof. Garritan:

    I stand corrected.

    I can only plead a horrible calculator accident for my error;
    and duly beg forgiveness from the mathematical community.

    Sincerely,
