I just saw the instrument list in Garritan World, and I must say I'm terribly impressed. The number of celtic instruments alone is enough for me to want to purchase this library, but the inclusion of taiko drums makes it irresistable. I've been wanting to play with those for a while, now...
But I have two basic questions.
1) I noticed that World includes a fiddle. I have GPO 3, and I know that the difference between a fiddle and a violin in the REAL world is how it is played. What makes the fiddle samples different from the violin samples in GPO?
2) My second question probably has more to do with Aria. As I said, I have GPO 3, so I still use the old player. Not Aria. Is it easier, harder, or more difficult to make the instruments sound realistic when using the Aira player? As those of you who've heard my past attempts know, I find achieving that realism difficult, and am hoping that the Aria player helps with that.
Thanks, in advance, for any responses.
