    "The Gofriller Cello" by Giorgio Tommasini, Stefano Lucato & Gary Garritan

    I am pleased to present this Gofriller Solo Cello demo that was composed and performed by Giorgio Tommasini.

    It was played entirely in real-time using controllers. It was not assembled or pieced together the way traditional samples are usually done or edited after the fact.

    Here is the first demo of the upcoming Gofriller Solo Cello:

    Ambient Version:

    MP3: http://www.garritan.com/Strad/Cell-demoBastyr.mp3

    WAV file: http://www.garritan.com/Strad/Cell-demoBastyr.wav
    (Using a Bastyr impulse from the Upcoming Real Spaces)

    Intimate and Close Version:

    MP3: http://www.garritan.com/Strad/Cell-demo05012006-dry.mp3

    WAV: http://www.garritan.com/Strad/Cell-demo05012006-dry.wav


    What is remarkable about this demo was that it was played in real-time.

    The dynamics, the changings in playing techniques, the onset,speed and intensity of vibrato were all performed on-the-fly. Like the Stradivari it uses exclusive Sonic Morphing technologies to allow real-time performance.

    Gofriller cellos are regarded as one of the best cellos ever made, and are highly sought after. Many of the most famous cellists have preferred cellos by Mateo Gofriller, a renowned Italian cello maker form the early 1700's.

    This is a work in progress and we're getting close to completion. We'll be posting more demos (including videos) soon.


    Enjoy!

    Gary Garritan

    Very, very, veeeeeery GOOD!!!!!

    As always. Another excelent product to add to the Garritan catalogue. I can't wait to hear the Garritan Real Spaces, the K2 player versions of Strad and this one, and, of course, what you all know.

    I'm saving money for all those sonic gadgets which will improve greatly our music.

    Thanks for all Gary!

    I think the vibrato is really fast. I assume the vibrato speed will be controllable like the Strad, and that the speed we have heard here is pedal to the metal.

    Sounds excellent Gary and Georgio!

    as a notation-programme user, I have only two things to say:
    1. the demo sounds wonderful.
    2. unless it's usable in a notation programme I have no reason to get excited.


    (I see no reason to "learn to perform" a virtual single instrument in my work. maybe there are others for whom this is a valid option, but it isn't for me. unless the Stradivari and Gofriller are usable from a notation platform they are of absolutely no use to me ... despite sounding wonderful)

    OK, the run down. Correct me where I am wrong.
    GOS
    GOS lite (less filling sounds great)
    GPO
    JABB
    SSV
    SGC
    Next:
    GPOA
    GPC (Garritan Personal Choir)
    S?DB (double bass)
    SSF (Solo Styxx Flexatone)
    SSTH (Solo Styxx Taxi Horn)
    GPPPP (Garritan Personal Pilates Percussion Pack)
    GVDIAB (Garritan Virtual DAN IN A BOX)
    That should about cover it, yes? If I missed anything please add to the list but if not add to the wish list and if it is already on the list or the wish list then maybe you should reconsider your wish of wishing this list never existed.
    By the way, does this come with chocolate milk?

    HINT - He may be building up to what you can use in chamber. Violin, Viola, Cello, DBass? You mean you wouldn't find room in your work for any one or all once the collection is completed? Why, Hey, there's always room for "Cello"!
