    Review of GPO in French - Can someone translate?

    For the FrancoAnglophones out there:

    Below is a review that was sent to us was wondering if someone could let me know what it means. Or at least a summary of it. In the Addams' Family, Gomez loved when Morticia spoke French. Perhaps I can be as lucky

    -----------------------------------------

    GARRITAN PERSONAL ORCHESTRA
    SYMPHONIQUE POUR LE LIVE

    C'est un orchestre symphonique de taille relativement modeste (moins de 2,5 Go) que Gary Garritan a voulu concevoir en privilégiant l'accès aux samples et l'économie de ressources machine, sans négliger la diversité et la qualité des instruments.

    Si vous êtes un compositeur professionnel qui doit produire des maquettes orchestrales, un amateur qui veut créer la grande musique symphonique, ou un étudiant qui s'exerce au métier de l'orchestration, ''GARRITAN PERSONAL ORCHESTRA'' simplifiera votre travail de créateur. Dans le studio, à la maison ou sur la route, l'orchestre personnel est pour chaque musicien.

    Garritan Personal Orchestra contient les samples des instruments majeurs de cordes, cuivres, bois, et percussions aussi bien que des instruments comme un piano de concert Stenway un violon Stradivarius, des harpes de concert Wurlitzer et Venus, des flûtes Haynes, des bassons Heckel, un céleste Mustel, un orgue d'église Rudolf von Beckerath, un clavecin, et plein d'autres instruments. Il contient aussi de multiples instruments solos.

    La philosophie du produit se résume en 3 points :
    Taille raisonnable.
    ''Players'' simple ou multiple très facile d'utilisation
    Prix plus qu'attractif 249 €.

    GPO (Garritan Personal Orchestra) est livré en coffret 4 CD avec mode d'emploi dédié (en anglais), compatible MAC et PC, avec le moteur ''Kontakt'' de ''Native Instrument''. Pour la composition symphonique 4 logiciels sont fournis.
    Tout d'abord : Le GPO Studio Host Application, avec l'interface 8 players, soit la possibilité de jouer 64 instruments simultanément (grosse consommation CPU).
    Cubasis VST 4.0 (OEM) pour ceux qui n'auraient pas Cubase ou autre séquenceur.
    Ouverture SE logiciel de notation très efficace.
    Et enfin la reverb ''Ambience'' de Smartelectronix.

    Kontakt a été adapté au besoin de GPO, simple, rapide, chargement de groupe d'instruments. Garritan Personnal Orchestra vous laisse construire avec la fonction ''Ensemble Maker'' vos propres ensembles et sections de différentes tailles à partir d'instruments solos spécialement enregistrés. Chacun comprenant un ensemble unique de samples. Cette fonctionnalité vous permet de créer des duos, trios, quartets ou des ensembles et section plus large, comme vous le désirez.

    D'autre part GPO vous permet de créer rapidement et facilement de la musique au son réaliste, dans une solution "prête à l'emploi". Pas de liste d'articulations compliquées, pas d'ensemble de contrôles obscurs, et pas de courbe d'apprentissage exponentielle. Chargez juste un instrument et jouez ! Personal Orchestra vous facilite la vie et vous permet d'exprimer vos idées musicales dans un temps record. GPO est tellement compact qu'on peut l'utiliser sur un ordinateur portable pour les musiciens qui vadrouillent.

    Bien sûr il sera difficile de comparer GPO avec les banques de sons d'autres marques qui sont tout simplement énormes (et plus chère), mais GPO propose des outils permettant de jouer en live en misant sur la qualité de l'interprétation et le temps réel. Vous chargez directement votre instrument et jouez dans la foulée, sans avoir a rechercher dans la base de donnés les samples, les multis ou les patches. Si vous avez la possibilité de remplacer la reverb Ambience par une reverb à convolution (gourmande en resources) l'illusion d'un grand orchestre est presque parfaite.

    Les contrôles du Garritan Personal Orchestra sont ergonomiques et standardisés, ce qui vous facilite l'apprentissage de l'interface. Ce système optimisé vous permet de maîtriser tous les instruments avec facilité. Des fonctionnalités avancées, tel que les coups d'archers alternatifs et à variation automatique, vous aident à produire des compositions plus réalistes avec moins de prise de tête. Le niveau sonore de l'instrument dépend de la molette de modulation, d'où une extrême facilité a créer des crescendos sur une note tenue. C'est fondamental et redoutablement simple.

    D'après Gary Garritan, concepteur de GPO, cet outil est avant tout pédagogique et donc pensé pour ceux qui font de la musique ou qui l'étudient. En allant sur les sites qui parlent de GPO, on apprend que certaines universités, dont le fameux ''Berklee College of Music'', ont adopté le pack complet ''GARRITAN PERSONAL ORCHESTRA''. Il faut dire aussi que le rapport qualité, musicalité, prix reste très attrayant.

    ''GARRITAN PERSONAL ORCHESTRA'' l'offre complète :

    Gary Garritan est un pionnier et un musicien avant tout, avec la création de la harpe midi, les premières banques GigaSampler, GigaHarp et Orchestral Strings, il vient de reconsidérer en profondeur l'orchestre symphonique en démocratisant la solution complête ''GARRITAN PERSONAL ORCHESTRA''.

    GPO n'est pas une banque de plus, c'est plutôt une autre voie plus musicale et plus accessible faite pour les musiciens qui ne veulent pas forcément perdre leur énergie créatrice dans les dédales de l'informatique musicale. GPO est fait pour l'apprentissage et pour le professionnel. On charge, on joue. Les banques géantes sont bien sûr beaucoup plus élaborées et étoffées, mais pas de compromis, la qualité est là sans attaquer le portefeuille.

    Here's what Babelfish says:

    I like the idea of an orchestra of "cords, coppers" and a Wurlitzer "toothing-stone"

    Hi Garry,

    My problem is almost the same, I have some problems to translate french into english, but I'll try...
    This article describes how GPO works and insist on the fact that it's a great product:
    - easy to use
    - it's a "small" library (only 2,5 Go) and easily transpotable
    - even it's a small library, it's a good quality
    - every musicien beguiner or pro would be satisfied
    - it's a very low price compare to the others library

    All I can say, this article tells only good things about GPO, and that's what I think too. Where did you find this?

    Regards.

    Re: Review of GPO in French - Can someone translate?

    I have never seen anything more hilarious than automatic translation! More than Buster Keaton and Woody Allen together.

    Anyway, Gary, this is a very positive review, although I think the reviewer hasn't tried the product very much (just my personal impression).

    I have re-translated the translation back to French, and then back to English again, using the same BabelFish:


    SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRATED PERSONAL of GARRITAN FOR OF PHASE

    it is an orchestra of relatively modest symphony of size (less than 2.5 disappear) that this Gary Garritan wanted to conceive by supporting the access to the samples and by saving it in the machine of resources, without neglecting the diversity and the quality of the instruments.

    If you are a professional type-setter which must produce the orchestral models, an amateur who wants to create the symphonic classical music, or a student which is exerted with the trade of the orchestration, ' ' the PERSONAL ORCHESTRA of GARRITAN ' ' will simplify your work of creator. In the studio, at the house or on the road, the personal orchestra is for each musician.

    The personal orchestra of Garritan contains the pilot principal instruments of the cords, coppers, wood, and of the percussions as well as of the instruments like large a Stenway concert a Stradivarius violin, teeth-stone in the concert of Wurlitzer and Venus, Haynes grooves, let us bassoons Heckel, celestial Mustel, a body of von Beckerath de Rudolf of church, a harpsichord, and full of other instruments. It also contains multiple solos of instruments.

    The philosophy of the product is recapitulated in 3 points:
    Reasonable size
    simple or multiple players very easy to employ
    price 249 more than gravity

    GPO (personal of orchestrated Garritan) is delivered out of CD of box 4 with the devoted instructions (in English), the compatible IMPER and PC, with the engine Kontakt of the indigenous instrument. For the symphonic composition 4 the software is given. First of all: The application of host centre of studio of GPO, with players of interface 8, is the possibility of playing 64 instruments simultaneously (great central processing unit of treatment of consumption).
    Cubasis VST 4.0 (OEM) for those which would not have Cubase or a different sequential meter.
    Of opening of very effective software of notation.
    And finally the reverb '' Environment '' of Smartelectronix.

    Kontakt was adapted to the need for GPO, simple, fast, loading of the group of instruments. The orchestra of Garritan Personnal leaves with you construction with the function ' ' manufacturer of unit ' ' your own sets and sections of various sizes starting from the recorded solos of instruments particularly. Each one including/arrangement a simple unit of the samples. This functionality enables you to create duets, trios, bytes or sets of four bits and a broader section, as you wish it.

    Moreover GPO enables you to create quickly and easily the music with the realistic noise, in a solution "prepare with employment". The no list of complicated articulations, not combination of the obscure orders, and not of curve of exponential study. Charge just an instrument and a play! The personal orchestra facilitates the life with you and allows you to express your musical ideas in disc of time. GPO is so compact that one can employ it on a portable computer for the musicians who vadrouillent.

    Naturally it will be difficult to compare GPO with the banks of the noises of other marks which are quite simply enormous (and more expensive), but GPO proposes tools making it possible to play in phase while misant above the quality of interpretation and the real time. You charge your instrument directly and play in the tread, without having must seek in the base of given the samples, the multis or the parts brought back. If you have the possibility of replacing the Environment of reverb by a reverb with the convolution (avid in the resources) the illusion of a full orchestra is almost perfect.

    Orders of the personal orchestra of ergonomic Garritan and are standardized, which facilitates the formation of the interface to you. This optimized system enables you to order all the instruments with the service. The avançées functionalities, such as the blows of the alternate archers and with the automatic variation, help you to produce more realistic compositions with less hook of head. The level of noise of the instrument depends on the notched roller of the modulation, from where an extreme service must create crescendos on a held note. It is fundamental and terribly simple.

    According to Gary Garritan, one thus thinks the creator of GPO, this tool before very teacher and for those what make the music or which study it. While going on the sites which speak about GPO, one learns that certain universities, of which the ' ' university celebrates of Berklee of the music '', complete package adoptee ' ' ORCHESTRA PERSONAL of GARRITAN ' '.

    GPO is not a bank besides, it is a rather other more musical and more accessible manner made for the musicians who do not want to inevitably lose their creative energy in the labyrinths of musical data processing. GPO is made for the formation and the professional. One charges, a cheek. The giant banks naturally are established much and packed, but not of the compromise, quality is there without attacking the small pocket.

    "Advanced functionalities, such as the blows of alternate archers and with automatic variation, help you to produce more realistic compositions with less catch of head."

    That pretty well sums up the reason I bought GPO!
