    Question Classical guitar

    Hello,

    knowing that this has been discussed before but finding no real solution:

    It seems as if GPOA is still not insight and there may be doubts whether a nylon guitar will be included. But I need one in combination with GPO + Finale.

    Could somebody give me a hint which Library to buy (although I would prefere to spend the money for GPOA

    The Vienna Horizon Concert Guitar + Kontakt 2 is one fine, but rather expensive, option.

    XSample offers a nice sounding classical guitar. It's in volume 2 of their series.

    This thread on the Geniesoft forum gives one of the best comparisons of leading guitar programs that I have seen. http://geniesoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2353

    Re: Classical guitar

    Hello

    and thanks for the interesting answers.

    I listened to all the examples and had a look to the functionality of the libraries and ..

    ... was afraid that I had to deal more with software technique as with music. For example Real Guitar seemed to be very complex and I am used to work more or less only with Finale and have Samplitude and no Kontakt 2.

    The most interesting hint was the thread in the other forum.

    And as someone said: You can't beat a real guitar.
    But I stumbled over a library Pampelmedia SF 2006 http://www.papelmedia.de , which costs only 30 Euro. So I will try that, if it doesnt work I will try Pure Guitar or better wait until GG is making another announcement: GPOA exclusivly with classical guitar is released

    it seems as if I have to look for another program. Papelmedia will be used on my little laptop which has not enough power to run GPO. I exchanged the original soundfond with the papelmedia gm-compatible soundfond. And as advertised it is at least for the classical instruments really good. (I didnt have a look at the other instruments and there is also a chorus.)

    So with a notation program you can use the standard "midi-instruments" without changing the whole setup. In comparison to GPO - No! One should not compare apples with oranges or a soundfont with an orchestral library: GPO is another class.

    On the bottom-line: The Papelmedia-guitar is for my music not usable. Solution: Have a look at the quote or in the meantime I use as a subsitute the GPO-Harp

    Re: Classical guitar

    Hello,
    another question for the experts:

    I had a look at YT-Pure Guitar and read, that the samples exist in three formats: AKAI S1000/S3000, EXS24 and Gigasampler. And that it can be "imported" to Kontakt.

    As far as I understood that is somekind of conversion.

    Can I use the updated Kontaktplayer (1.x) for GPO for this import?

    And can I import one guitar additional to the GPO instruments into Kontakt and use Finale 2006 as my normal working environment for creating and playingback music?
