We’ve teamed up with our friends at Garritan to bring you a special offer on the new version of the world’s favourite orchestral sound library this holiday season.
Garritan Personal Orchestra 4.0 is the latest version of Garritan’s award-winning orchestral sound library, and Sibelius users in the UK, US and Australia can buy it at a special 25% discount direct from the Sibelius web store until 31 December.
GPO4 includes a number of new features, not least the high-performance ARIA sample player engine, developed for Garritan by our good friends Plogue Art et Technologie, as well as improved built-in effects, a new Auto Legato feature, and, last but not least, a whole bunch of new sounds, including brass sounds from Project SAM, as well as vocal sounds, and a number of other goodies.
If you’re already using Sibelius 6, then GPO4 is the ideal companion for your new version of Sibelius: GPO4 is tightly integrated, with automatic loading of sounds that happens in the background while you edit your score, and special handling of the ARIA player. Make sure you’re running Sibelius 6.1 or later for best results with GPO4: choose Help > Check For Updates from within Sibelius itself to make sure you’re fully up-to-date. If you’re using Sibelius 5 or earlier, now’s the perfect time to consider upgrading to the multi award-winning Sibelius 6.
If you already own an earlier version of Garritan Personal Orchestra, you can buy an upgrade direct from Garritan for $49. Make sure you have your serial number handy — it must be for the Kontakt Player 2 version of GPO — and then head along to Garritan’s online store to purchase your upgrade.
