I recently purchased GPO4 from Cakewalk's site to see if I could get more expression from my orchestral pieces. I like what I hear so far, but I'm afraid a few things seem to be amiss.
I guess I was disappointed when I noticed there weren't as many patches as I thought. I remember seeing a demo video on ZREO (can't remember which post; wish I could find it again), showcasing some sort of string patch(es), and I was wondering if that was part of this program.
In any case, I guess I was wondering: is it possible to make any of the horns "growl" on a specific note? I'd really like to add this aggressive touch to a few pieces.
Also, why isn't the percussion kit mapped to General MIDI standards? That would make it easier to listen to select MIDIs in the ARIA player. It wouldn't hurt to have this as a separate patch, anyway; is there any way that I can stick this map in manually?
Thanks for any info you can give... I hope to master this software soon, so that I can produce some really impressive orchestral sounds!
