    I want to say hello!

    Hey guys,

    I've been following this forum quite a few weeks and it's a lovely community that i'm now officially part of! But the real reason why i'm here is that i will be receiving my first real orchestral sample library tommorrow: GPO!

    I can hardly wait and i listened to over a hundred of audio demos of GPO and i still can't believe what you guys can do with this stuff!

    I hope GPO sounds as good as they're saying. I've already set everything up (notation program, midi keyboard and stuff) and all that's missing right now is GPO!

    Enough talk for today! I'm gonna keep waiting till GPO arrives at my house tomorrow so.. guys..

    Till then!

    Welcome to the forum, Jeroen. I'm sure you will have a fun experience in this community. Make sure you work your way through some of the tutorials at:

    http://www.garritan.com/tips_tutorials.html

    These were very helpful to me. Again welcome to the group and enjoy GPO!

    OK, welcome and finally I meet a fellow countryman.
    Next week let's hear something coming from the south of the Netherlands.

    We are all waiting for it....

    Re: I want to say hello!

    Cool! Another one from The Netherlands!

    The first thing i'm gonna do when i receive GPO is jump in the air.. slowly open the box.. do another jump in the air.. and slowly install this (hopefully) awesome piece of software! Then when i get acquainted with the essentials and correctly set everything up.. i'm gonna write a theme for GPO!

    Maybe a bit over-the-top.. but GPO is every composer's wet dream!

    Oh, and RichR: Those tutorials and tips certainly come in handy. They are fantastic! Thank you!

    Don't expect too much. I first must learn to use the program. My 10 years of piano experience may come in handy though. So composition-wise i think it will be alright. But i don't know how it will sound. I will use Finale 2007 in combination with GPO. Now i heard Finale is optimized for GPO with the Human Playback stuff so i don't really know how that will turn out. And i need to add 512 MB extra RAM to my PC. I've got 512 MB RAM right now. So i can do small ensembles but not full-blown orchestral scores. Unless i export every track to audio first. But i'm not sure how that works in Finale.

    Thumbs up Re: I want to say hello!

    Heyyyy Jeroane welcome to the Garritan family where only the insane composers (and by insane I mean their music is quite out of the norm) hide out from the rest of the world learning the great keys to successfully realizing their own compositions AND ALL THROUGH THE USE OF GPO!
    I can surely tell you you are in for the best musical ride of your musical career. This forum is a veritable gold mine of information, knowledge, and learning's from some of the greatest in the field of orchestrational composition!
    So, after having said a mouth full of mumble jumble .... Welcome!

    Thanks Styxx! I'm sure i will have a great time here.

    May i point out that the Online Orchestration Course here at Northern Sound Source is absolutely fantastic! I'm sure it comes in helpful if i need to do some orchestration!

    Welcome, Jeroen!

    It takes a little time and experience to get the best out of
    new tools like this, but I am certain you will be impressed
    and pleased with GPO... it's a fantastic tool.

    My best,
