    Full GOS Library fully converted files for EXS

    The existing GOS string library has been converted to EXS. Here is the link to the GOS EXS files.

    http://www.garritan.com/support/GOS-EXSfiles.sitx

    A few details about the translated files:

    1. All short bow instruments (except for detache) have a default envelope sustain setting of 0. This can be adjusted to vary the length of the samples, similar to Giga's GPC 8 controller.
    2. Long bow instrument's envelope attack and release settings may also be easily adjusted to whatever feels good to the user. Depending on the material being performed, I recommend settings between 88 - 498 ms for long bow attacks and 221 - 498 ms for long bow releases. All envelope attack settings for the long bow LEG instruments should be left alone as they were specifically programmed for Maestro Tools.
    3. EXS cannot translate Giga multi layered instruments that use the mod wheel and velocity to Crossfade between layers. Therefore, the Sus NV/V EXP instruments did not translate well. Attempts to duplicate this Giga feature were made, but it's not perfect.
    4. Warm instruments are not included. Users can program their own WARM instruments by implementing the EXS filter by assigning any controller to modify the filter cutoff in real time.
    5. MaestroTools functionality (Legato Tool, Alternating Bows, Variability) are available in the Logic Environment Maestro Tools that Roman Beilharz programmed and is avilable in the library. These functions should work directly within Logic.

    Many thanks for Sean McCoy for doing this and to Kevin Rix for advanced and additional programming. Please note this is the existing GOS library and not the 24 bit GOS2.

    This should make Bocher happy!

    Cool thing Gary, hope EXS users fine this valuable.

    That's great news! One question: as a recent purchaser of the full Kontakt, which program - Kontakt (when used as a plug-in from within Logic 6.4 for Mac and it's ability to import gig files) or Logic's EXS (using your newly-converted GOS files), imports GOS more accurately/successfully?
    Thanks for any info -

    Congrats! Sounds like a winner.

    Kontakt, by far. It has the capabilities to reproduce GOS very accurately, in many cases a parameter-by-parameter conversion.

    The Kontakt conversion is pretty good, and it's being consistantly improved. A Third-party conversion program should do a better job.

    There's nothing stopping anyone from tweaking to taste either. That's what Sean did.

    I agree with Garth (the world's leading expert on sample conversions and all-around good guy). Kontakt will import GOS giga files better than GOS files converted from Giga to EXS to Kontakt.
