    Cool Example Errors - A concern.

    Firstly, may I say what a wonderful achievement this resource is - remarkable!

    I did however notice something that was a little concerning today - Example 25. seems to be at odds with original score:

    The Harp part's notes, bar three on the original score reads F, Ab, Db, F, Ab, Db, Eb, G, C, Eb, G, C ...

    ... on the online version it reads F, G, C, G, C, Eb, Eb, G, C, Eb, G, D.

    Naturally I haven't been through the whole website with a 'fine-toothed comb', but it seems likely that there will be other errors .... problematic for an educational resource.

    I quite understand that it would be big 'ask' to request that the Garritan back-room boys go back and double check all examples for accuracy, but I wonder whether a way forward might be to include an errata submission page via which users could feed back ...

    ... thoughts?

    Re: Example Errors - a concern.

    There's at least one other error - in Example #59 where the clarinet and bassoon play in unison instead of octaves (a little more glaring since it fails to provide the timbre that it supposedly demonstrates). I never mentioned anything but since someone else brought up the subject first...

    There also seem to be some text errors, which would be easier to fix. For quite a few of the examples, the title in the text and the title just above the score do not match. I'm not always sure which one is correct.

    Question Re: Example Errors - a concern.

    Well I'm glad I'm not alone here .... I'm not sure how well these threads are monitored by the people who are in a position to respond ...

    If anyone could suggest a way of taking his forward that would be helpful ....

    ... anyone?

    Re: Example Errors - a concern.

    Okay here's an idea. Why not just post all the errors we find in this thread here and save "the Garritan back-room" boys the trouble?
