GARRITAN 13-GPO5DCO overview

  • 1Description

Personal Orchestra 5 from Garritan is an orchestral sample library that delivers the complete range of orchestral instruments, including strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and keyboards. The library is designed to allow the creation of numerous instrument combinations, each capable of playing a separate part. Sections or a complete orchestra can be built one instrument at a time, or pre-configured instrumental combinations can be accessed via the Ensemble Manager.

This new edition continues in the tradition of past versions but with vastly expanded instruments and the offering of new techniques, performance spaces and reverbs, and instrument body resonances. The sampled sound library integrates the high-performance ARIA Player.

Includes all the major instruments of the orchestra – strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and keyboards
Build an orchestra one instrument at a time, exactly as required – create solos, duos, trios, quartets, chamber groups, ensembles, sections or a full symphony orchestra
Play divisi and separate lines for each instrument, free from fixed-size section samples
Each instrument has its own individual character and nuance that can interact with each other just like real players
Ensemble Manager makes it easy to load pre-configured instrumental combinations

Personal Orchestra 5 - Virtual Instrument (Download) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cost for something so amazin I was blown away with how versatile and professional this instrument pack was. I now don't even know how I would function without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds good for the money I bought this to accompany my copy of Garritan Instant Orchestra. If you have both you have quite a selection to compose with. I started with free programs such as Edriol HQ and loved that and bought a couple of low end libraries from Digital Sound Factory. I bought Instant Orchestra first and loved it so much I bought the Personal Orchestra. Points to remember is that Personal Orchestra 5 is a major upgrade from 4 make sure you get 5. It sounds great and I have seamlessly merged it into my new work and is now my preferred library. Technical concerns are that Instant Orchestra is a far lower volume almost half so when mixing the two libraries it is a bit of work to balance it. They both use the same Aria player so it is clearly in the library. The included Aria player is very light on the CPU as well as the libraries but the combination settings can eat up CPU power quickly. It was trouble free to install and activate. The only other issue I experienced was that Instant Orchestra uses the modulation wheel to control sounds and mine defaulted to a lower position that resulted in no sound and it was frustration until I found that solution. Bottom line it is clearly the next step up on the orchestral ladder from where I started and if carefully used it is very realistic and enjoyable. You can pay 5 times the price for what you are getting.
