    GPO Update (July 2005) Now Available for Download

    The latest update for the player and the library is now available on the Native Instruments site. It will soon be up on the Garritan site as well. The player and the library are both updated by the installation process. Here’s the easiest way to install the update (assuming the user has a connection to the internet):

    Open the player, click on the Kontakt Player logo, click the Update tab, click Check for Software Update, Login with your User Name and Password, Select Garritan Personal Orchestra and your computer platform from the list, Download the 1.1.8.3 Update, Unzip, and install by double clicking on the Garritan Personal Orchestra Setup.exe file. Follow the installation instructions. If you install in the same location(s) as before, that should complete the process. While you are at the NI site there is also a “What’s this?” file that will show changes to the player itself.

    Changes to the library include:

    1.A change in the folder hierarchy. You will now see the instrument folders directly when you click on the player’s “Load” button. These folders contain the “dry” instruments in their latest form. We have made the decision to eliminate the “wet audition” folder in this and future versions. The “wet” instruments have proven to be a source of confusion when people failed to understand that they were not intended to be used for anything except quick auditioning of instruments. They are too processor intensive to be practical otherwise. Having said this, the older “wet” folder will not be removed by this Update installation. You will find all older folders at the bottom of the instrument list. You may delete them manually, if you like, by going to the Garritan installation folder and deleting the older folders from the Instruments folder. Or they can remain for your use.

    2.The latest instrument folders incorporate all the changes from last fall’s update plus some small additional changes. See last fall’s update documentation for details: http://www.garritan.com/support/GPOUpdate.pdf The additional changes include some bug fixes and an occasional additional instrument (like the second vibraphone designed to work in pedal mode 1.) A few instruments, like Bassoon 1, have had their range extended. Most additional changes are rather minor.

    3.During the installation process you will also have a choice to install the Finale 2006 upgrade folder. This gives previous GPO owners who use Finale 2006 (which contains a Lite version of GPO) a direct upgrade path to the full version of GPO at no additional cost. Note that not all standard GPO features are available in the full Finale notation version due to differences in instrument construction necessary for compatibility with Finale. Those who do not have Finale 2006 can download the notation folders here: http://www.garritan.com/GPO_Files/9.Notation.zip

    Please note that this installation does not include an update to the Multis. The Multis may be updated at a later time. If the Multis folder is empty in your installation you can download the Multis here: http://www.garritan.com/GPO_Files/Multis.zip

    I followed the instructions but only got a version 1.1.8.003.

    The corresponding file was GPO108U_Win_Setup.zip, which is the same I downloaded and installed some time ago.

    Do I already have already the new one? Or should I install a second time?

    Hi Hajo,

    The previous version did not have the latest GPO Library imbedded (just the player update). This download has both. Just to be on the safe side it may be best to install the version that's posted.

    Hajo,

    version 1.1.8.003 = version 1.1.8.3. If the zip file you downloaded and installed previously is significantly less than 17MB, you should reinstall. The original v1.1.8.3 didn't include the updated library v2.0.

    As Gary said, if in doubt, reinstall with the version that is posted now. Nickie is correct about version numbers.

    I think i am safe. Took the player update from one release. and the library from the previous release. Hopefully no other changes were in the build.

    There are some minor changes since the previous release, as I mentioned above.

    Note for everyone using the updater:

    You will have to manually copy the Personal Orchestra dll from the plug in folder you choose during the update and paste it in any other location where it is needed.

    For example, I installed the dll file to my Cubase LE VST plugin folder. I had to manually copy and paste it into GPO Studio's VST plugin folder as well as the default VST folder in the Garritan Personal Orchestra program directory (Windows.)

    Just FYI. If anyone needs any specific help. I'm always online. If you don't believe me, look at the pics of me from NAMM. THE EYES! THE EYES! BEWARE THE RACOON EYES!

    Hello Gary,

    this was really a fast one. Thank you. The file has about 17 MB so it seems as it is the new one. But it would be a good idea to give the Update file the appropriate version number. It helps to minimize confusion ;-)

    Have a nice day
