GARRITAN Personal Orchestra 5

Garritan Personal Orchestra has always been about democratic orchestral-music making for all, at an affordable price. Does GPO5 continue the tradition? Keith Gemmell conducts the investigation…

Garritan’s highly successful Personal Orchestra has been selling steadily since 2004. It first appeared as a Kontakt Player instrument, but was updated in 2009 as GPO4, with its own built-in ARIA Player developed by Plogue Art Et Technologie. Since then, updates have been few and far between and as good as it is, it was beginning to look and sound a little long in the tooth compared to its competitors – the strings in particular needed updating. The long wait is now over, though, and GPO5’s instrument list has 70 per cent more patches overall; the addition of Garritan Orchestral Strings; updated ProjectSAM brass patches; an expanded choir; new Steinway pianos; a new harp and a custom organ console. 16 new impulse presets have also been added to the convolution reverb.
