    Thumbs up GPO Group Buy Final Tally - 1,307 GPOs - Another NS Success Story

    The GPO Group Buy turned out to be more successful than we expected with last minute subscribers pushing the numbers -- a total of 1,307 copies of GPO sold! AFAIK, this is far and away the largest number of people to participate in a sample library/virtual instrument group buy.



    I learned a great deal in the process. The important thing is to work with distributors and the relationships developed. Time and Space was wonderful in doing a simultaneous promotion which worked out very well for everyone. In getting the word out I also had the opportunity to know people from some of the other forums which was a real treat. I also experienced first-hand how good things are at Northern Sounds. I wish Michiel Post success in his Group Buy going on now and to other developers who will follow.

    It's great that the number of members at Northern Sounds (and the GPO forum) will be increasing. I am looking forward to the increase in talent and more great music. And it is my hope that as more people enter the world of sampling that they will gravitate to other libraries.

    The number of subscriptions took us by surprise. We never imagined it would be this many (I guess not everybody already owned GPO ). We are working as hard as we can to get all the orders processed. There was a manufacturing glitch that set us back but things are back on track.

    My biggest "thank you" to those who were a part of the Group Buy. I know that many of you spoke to friends and were active in spreading the work and thanks for your help in making this a successful event. And thanks especially to PapaChalk and DeSound for their generosity and for hosting this most successful Group Buy.

    Hi Gary,
    Fantastic result and very well deserved.

    This result shows us how important the internet has become in doing large scale promotions, indeed getting much more people into buying music software than we imagined. I experienced the same amazement during our first group buy: it is the most effective and user-friendly way to reach your customers.
    Good luck with your new libraries and shipping this bulk!
    Best regards,
    Michiel Post
