"GPO 4 was released around 2010, so thats not a decade. Would you say that CineSymphony Lite is the best for the money? Rodney Carlyle Money said:
I completely disagree with you. Garritan doesn't even sound remotely like real instruments. The…"

"I completely disagree with you. Garritan doesn't even sound remotely like real instruments. The strings are horrible, the percussion sounds not noticeable, you can almost tell what the woodwinds are suppose to be, and as a brass player the brass…"

"Hi guys,
I'm trying out Sibelius to see if i will end up buying it but i can't get Garriton Personal Orchestra to work with Sibelius 7.5. I tried downloading the sound set for it but that didn't work."

"Hi Gilbert:
I'd be interested. I currently use Sibelius for writing and playback and would be interested in any tips and tricks you might have to make playback sound better. I use East-West with Sibelius but am considering others like VSL and Berlin…"

"This is an issue which seems to pop up all the time. I see it in the following way: The purpose of film music is that it is  used interactively in a film ( or am I wrong?) When I hear film music, I always wonder for which film it is composed, and I…"
