    Garritan Personal Orchestra Demos posted!

    I am pleased to present the first GPO demos! Thanks to Duncan Brinsmead, Jim Ortner, Frank Spitznagel and Tom Hopkins for preparing these demos.

    These demos will give you an idea of some of the capabilities of Personal Orchestra right \"out-of-the-box\". The instrumentation in these demos ranges from large symphony orchestrations, to a small ragtime band, to an concert pipe organ solo.

    Everything you hear in these demos is from Garritan Personal Orchestra. No other libraries were used and no EQ nor external processing was applied Everything was loaded, played, sequenced and mixed on each of the performer\'s personal computer. The integrated Kontakt player by Native Instruments was used as a plug-in the performer\'s sequencer (Sonar, Cubasis, Logic). The Ambience reverb plug-in that is bundled with Personal Orchestra was used in the mix for all these demos. These demos also show many of the expressive controls available such as Mod Wheel expression/dynamics, alternating up and down bows, the legato feature, tongued and slurred choices in the winds, and portamento.

    Here are the links:

    Here is the link to the demo section of my website where you can find out the instrumentation and more information about the demos.

    These are the first of many demos that will be posted. We will be also posting the accompanying MIDI files and templates.

    Shameless Plug: GPO gives you a full orchestra of sounds, the Kontakt player, Overture notation, Cubasis VST 4.0 and the Ambience reverb plug-in - all this for $249. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hope you enjoy!

    Wow Gary! I\'m listening to the Magic Flute as we speak. Those of you who want to get this without a glitch should be sure to \"right-click\" and save to your hard drive before playing. For some odd reason, my browser tried to stream it, and at 192Kbps it choked. Playing after download was smooth as silk. Thanks for giving the demos to us at a good resolution.

    Listen to the turns in the Mozart! The flute and bassons in the question and answer section starting about two minutes are AMAZING!

    I defy anyone to do this with a library costing four times as much (Hell, make that ten times as much - I\'ve not heard a demo to match these).

    There are some live orchestras that are going to be shaking in their boots, and rightfully so.

    Can\'t wait to download and listen to the rest.

    Can\'t wait for my copy to arrive! Sounds great, Gary. I can\'t wait to hear more contemporary demos.

    I guess you\'ll sell thousands of these - you deserve a total success! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    \"I guess you\'ll sell thousands of these....\"

    Something tells me he\'s shooting for more than just 4 digit sales with this thing. And for good reason, this could quite possibly represent the turning point in quality/pricing in sample products. Sooo.. who\'s still in line to spend thousands on another orch library? Not me...
