Here are the links to articulation files for Reduced RAM versions of GOS.

These articulation files were prepared for Andy Brick for a composition he wrote. This composition was written for string orchestra and was originally premiered live in Europe with the Prague Symphony Orchestra. To hear Andy\'s composition using GOS go here (\"http://www.andybrick.com/projects/garritan/abrickm201.mp3\")

These files create instruments that use considerably less RAM but without sacrificing any of the advanced features like 4 layer EXP, LEG, ALT, REL, etc. The only thing lost is chromatic sampling. Generally speaking, the RAM version maps samples at the major 2nd while the 1/3 RAM version maps the samples at the minor 3rd. In neither case are any samples stretched more than a minor 2nd in either direction. This keeps the sonic impact minimal while supplying large savings in RAM.

Please note that application of these files will eliminate all instruments in the .gig files beyond the ones that have been modified. This is a \"stripped down\" version. If you ever wish to return to the standard list of instruments use the \"revert\" files included with the last update - also you can download it here. (\"http://www.garritan.com/support/Revert_to_Standard_Update.exe\")

The articulation files are contained in a self-extracting zip file. Once you download it, double click on the file. Follow the on-screen prompts to extract the articulation files. As with earlier articulation updates, once the articulation files are extracted load each GOS .gig file, in turn, into the Instrument Editor and apply the corresponding articulation file to each .gig file. For more detailed instructions refer to the documentation included with the last update discs, or go to http://www.garritan.com/Installing_Articulation_Files.html.
