    String Harmonics

    Can string harmonics be accomplished in GPO4? I thought they would be done via keyswitch, but I don't see that option.

    GPO doesn't have string harmonics, but Instant Orchestra does.

    String Harmonics
    String Harmonic Octaves
    String Harmonics Slow

    The problem is it's a full strings patch right? In other words you can't really separate out the different string sections as I understand.

    I could be wrong though.

    Yes you're right - they are full ensembles. There can be some separation due to which octave you play, but there's probably overlap into the different string families.

    I don't know for sure of course - but from listening to them I think they are done that way. I wouldn't buy any library based on the hope that 3 patches might be what I was looking for - FossMaNo1 would have to see if the library is right for him as a whole.

    The string harmonics do have section overlaps. The only way to get individual section harmonics is to purchase other libraries at a minimum of $500.

    sadly, string harmonics (and col legno) are one of the major sticking points with GPO, and the reason many of us are so impatient for Garritan to release his "advanced" string library.

    Re: String Harmonics

    Is it official that an advanced string library is in the works?
