    I live in GPO

    I don't know about y'all, but I live in GPO. I have other libraries, but I consistently choose GPO.

    I LOVE GPO!

    Thank God it exists!!!!!!!!

    Now, if I could only afford Altverb DPDAN keeps bragging about! (#&*($&!@^#) :-)

    ROFL!

    My sentiments exactly.

    And undoubtedly an enormous clan of others.

    People quickly become very devoted to GPO, and
    with many good reasons.

    My best,

    There are other libraries available with a far greater selection of articulations, but I don't have a month to dedicate to auditioning just the right pieces of cellos to put it all together. I agree GPO has been a real blessing for me.

    Quite so. You have just nailed down one of the great virtues of GPO.

    Good thread topic, I live there too, whenever I'm not doing something else. I start off with good intentions, a page open in Finale, inputing notes for each instrument, frequently clicking playback to judge the results and then tweek or make changes. Then to take a break, I'll click on GPO and load Steinway or Steinway light, hours go by and I'm still playing with Steinway, having forgot all about the Finale file I was supposed to be working on... and I'm not even a piano player... but i think i probably soon will be at this rate.

    not sure if I follow the logic of this which would suggest that that less is better! Surely the ideal situation is a library that has the sounds and articulations that are genuinely useful and properly differentiated, clearly organised so that the hunting around is kept to a minimum. Part of the object of larger libraries is surely to give a greater choice of expressive possibilities for different projects and also different ways of recording --eg velocity v mod wheel for dynamics to give a simple example (the mod wheel approach of GPO has pros and cons but it is awkward for exisiting projects recorded in a different way).
