" austere and a bit dated but still relevant"

Installation and implementation: ok

Failure to me is the use of Kontakt player, which to me is always a problem ... I would probably take my time to learn, but I've never found intuitive. That said, it's a classic that "everyone uses" so the pb comes perhaps from me :-)

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

no bp, lightweight software

OVERALL OPINION

Where it is fishing a little sound, it is not flattering or very large as in some banks where current when playing a single note was already in the emotion that flows alone ... meaning there is a bit austere software .. and it must be said, a bit overwhelmed. The sound alone is certainly fairly realistic, but not necessarily sexy.

In my opinion......

OVERALL OPINION

Where it is fishing a little sound, it is not flattering or very large as in some banks where current when playing a single note was already in the emotion that flows alone ... meaning there is a bit austere software .. and it must be said, a bit overwhelmed. The sound alone is certainly fairly realistic, but not necessarily sexy.

In my opinion this is a plus for the composition as it is not fooled by the sound and you have to get in writing how to make it sound, which I think is a very good thing if we want to play music by real instruments.

on the other hand, if you want to do a complete and final prod, it may sound a bit small. If that's the intimate, it may stick, but if you want the Hollywood's going to be just.

Against by the sounds, as I said above, are realistic and tasteful, and joints, and many relevant.

Personally, what I do, is to use GPO sounds of "front" in the mix by re-inflating the set when needed by doubling sounds with more realistic and less than I otherwise , like tablecloths ... I noticed that even synthetic sounds mixed far behind can give an overall sound very acoustique.Je also sometimes amused myself with doubling sounds mélotrons and the result is very interesting, "organic".

So it's usable, including the final, provided they are willing to spend some time and have no other "strings" to his bow to overcome the shortcomings. That said, when comparing the price of GPO to the banks orchestral inordinate you are doing today, we say that this little software is not necessarily so beyond that.

If not in the same genre, with perhaps a little more scope but within a reasonable price range it there's also home Philarmonik IK Multimedia. I also, and with those two, I'm pretty shielded to face anything orchestral.

The installation does not pose a particular problem: there are three DVD copy on the hard drive is everything. Must then register on the site of Native. I deprecated, however, install the player "stand alone" if you work with a squence (Cubase in my case), it seems to me that this cre of problem (but I'm not s r, it seemed that the use of silent living memory more important then ...)

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I work with Cubase SX which I use the effect "surround" for spatialized sounds: it effectively trs. (Map Hoontech DSP 24). Trs everything works well, I can quietly work for long hours without my music conductor failure. This gives the conductor a trs trs homogne and fun (see......

The sounds of soloists are pretty trs, trs expressive and enjoyable play.

OVERALL OPINION

I use GPO for a year. It is a sound bank a little particulire: you must read the instructions (in English) to properly use it. All sounds have characteristics, the use of the Mod Wheel or Sustain pedals produce sound effects DIFFERENT following. Which is very well with this sound library is the trs homognt great conductor of sound obtained. I think all have taken t make a sound recording of the whole. As the oboe does not sound like an organ playing the snare drum as the explosion of 10 kg of TNT, but all sounds like an orchestra homogne trs. Sounds "all" are played by configuring two or three patch on the same MIDI channel, giving the big brass sounds, or sounds of strings chamber orchestra. Compar other sound banks, the GPO is very easy in this mix, you just know (and love) for orchestrating ring.

Very simple as that either GPO or EWQSL

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Hyperthreading Pentium 4 3GHz - 1GB RAM
Runs flawlessly

OVERALL OPINION

Here is the big test that took me some time on GPO vs EWQSL basically the reality of a band against that of hollywood!

What I noticed right away (I am not a professional plug-ins or orchestral orchestral writing): GPO in several sections contain a very small volume (for my part I had to put the volume to almost 0db to hear properly, it is often to 13db)
EWQSL sounds very sharp, metal (as if everything was filtered with a slight resonance)
EWQSL can make a sound very grandiose only work if all effects turned on .. it sounds too gross and......

What I noticed right away (I am not a professional plug-ins or orchestral orchestral writing): GPO in several sections contain a very small volume (for my part I had to put the volume to almost 0db to hear properly, it is often to 13db)
EWQSL sounds very sharp, metal (as if everything was filtered with a slight resonance)
EWQSL can make a sound very grandiose only work if all effects turned on .. it sounds too gross and finishes sound are not unlike GPO bcp more subtle but over and for once sorely lacking punch

TEST the instrument by instrument:

TRUMPET ** **
EWQSL: unrealistic, 4 variations
GPO: realistic, 15 variations

** ** FRENCH HORN
EWQSL: qqs less realistic but very convincing and impressive effects
GPO: more realistic, but difficult to master

** ** TROMBONE
EQSL: three variations, but the quality is great bcp lower and breath is present in the higher octaves
GPO: 11 variations, better quality of sample (very regular on the extended keyboard)

TUBA ** **
EWQSL: three variations, is doing well, still very great,
GPO: 4 variations, more realistic, softer

** ** HARP
EWQSL: a variation, but too pretty gross, with effects (delay) but it is remarkable distance from the realism
GPO: 8 variations, should win big, very good for two harps

** ** CELESTA
EWQSL I have not seen
GPO: pretty (but somewhat difficult to virtualize anyway)

** ** HARPSICHORD
EWQSL I have not seen
GPO: pretty but not exceptional either (without reverb sounds pretty bad)

** PIANO **
EWQSL: three variations, the piano is more regular and in my opinion the best bill
GPO: 4 variations, I was disappointed in the sense or capture sound leaves too reflected the recording of a grand piano in particular (mechanical noise when it plays the note increases the sensation of the sample)

** ** PERCUSSION
EWQSL: a superb range of drums!
GPO: only two drums: (

** ** CROTALE
EWQSL: unbearable and screaming
GPO: quality and subtlety

** ** MARIMBA
EWQSL: no marimba
GPO: very nice and realistic (including a large symphonic marimba)

** ** Timpani
EWQSL: grandiose!
GPO: superb

** ** XYLOPHONE
EWQSL: criada and so tiring and disappointing
GPO: pretty and realistic

ORGANS ** **
EWQSL: very pretty (reverb on) but GPO is a notch more variety and quality
GPO: more realistic

** LOW **
EWQSL: EWQSL we feel that is more comfortable in this kind of raw sound, the bass is certainly more "sampling" sound they make their effect! Hollywood here I am
GPO: more realistic but too "soft" in this category, the bass lacks depth and this

** ** VIOLAS & VIOLINS
EWQSL: its strength lies in this type of sound, we really do in a band just after having loaded the bank settled without
GPO: despite the presence of combos, the sound is rather flat for a class like this one, it requires some work to get sound (if you wish) made a more "efficient"

CHOIR ** **
GPO does not propose changes EWQSL 5 but that does not cover a range wide enough for a choir not really usable

** ** BASSOON
EWQSL & GPO: both hold sound but different

** ** CLARINET
EWQSL: pretty grim
GPO: realistic
FLUTE ** **
both are pretty bad, GPO fare better overall, against special mention by the "thrill" in EWQSL very nice but a little "dirty"! and the concert flute also quite qualitative (tjs Hollywood certainly in the spirit)

FRANÇAIS ** HORN **
EWQSL: they have one but it was useless!
GPO: realistic

OBOE ** **
both hold, for the benefit of tjs GPO

Same low

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Ditto

OVERALL OPINION

I do not really understand the bad reviews of GPO.
I think also that those who find that does not ring a do not know or use it did not try to push a little trick. The final rendering dpend essentially more thing:
- Use the wheel well: if we play such a line of super mcanique violin fawn on his midi keyboard without using the scroll wheel will "humanize" qq in so the game was going to do in the end . So for each instrument: thinking VLOC wheel or change on this or that note
No-click game (with exceptions). An orchestra is NEVER mtronomique.C is trs important (and harder too)
Any dial-in "dry" which is sometimes Drout......

Any dial-in "dry" which is sometimes Drout beginners to the cost (especially for winds that may at first put off). Add a final overall reverb to realize rendering.

In short it is a job = crazy on each line of composition but it is what will make the final rendering. I dfie frankly a bunch of people make the difference between a conductor and a component vritable chiade the GPO (except of course the individual volumes in the world of conservative and traditional of course, be not DCON).
Please Arrtez to swing opinion ngatifs always like, is not sound, is sounds wrong, etc ... then you just fiddle your software for 2 hours only.
It's been several months for me and I'm still learning qq trick for a ring (and also ancessite any work costing a CD of classical music to understand some subtleties cot)
So I say: GPO, a demand but the fact taf! Point bar
