Re: GPO5 Overlay?

The overlay instruments are meant to be used in conjunction with a regular instrument of the same type. They are sampled at f and ff levels to add to the massiveness of a group sound. According to the GPO4 manual they're intended to: "Add 'body', increase contrast from soft to loud, give an imp...

Re: What does SAM in GPO5 stand for

Hello Jack, Needless to say, I'm very impressed with your background, and wish that life had allowed me to do more in the sphere of music. But, no regrets. My contributions in the field of music have come much later in life, creating some rehearsal and backing tracks for my wife who's a semi-profess...

Re: What does SAM in GPO5 stand for

Hello Jack (my father's name was Jack), Aha! A close neighbour. I'm thinking of moving (concerns about imminent supernova). Techniques, yes indeed, getting the best from any of the Garritan libraries is about learning control, literally MIDI control. As a starter, if you can, play in musical phrases...

Re: What does SAM in GPO5 stand for

Welcome Jack, You say you're looking at GPO5. Given your background, have you taken a look at another Garritan product known as CoMB (or CaMB), Concert and Marching Band? I had GPO4, and now 5, but I bought CoMB too because it has some extras, combinations and drums that aren't really orchestral, mo...

Re: Extending that range of an instrument

Hmmm! Could it, I wonder, be something to do with the 'rules' files that need to be loaded with into Finale to make it work correctly? I'm no expert with this but there's a support article that describes what to do. (There's also been some discussion over at the Finale forum on a similar problem.) T...

Re: Extending that range of an instrument

Thanks for jumping in here, Keith. I knew about the "transposing instrument" bit of your post, but not the nice little (?) quirks that Finale introduces just to make notation entry that little bit more exciting (!). Transposing an octave is, of course, easy peasy. Where I frequently get st...

Re: Aria Multi Outs  <SOLVED>

Hi Grant,

Have you checked out the on-line user manual over here: User manuals (DAW)?

You'll find a set up procedure for ARIA within SONAR there.
I know it works because others are using the multi-out ARIA and have been for many years.

Regards,
John.

Re: Extending that range of an instrument

You're quite right in saying that the lowest note for the tuba is a low Bb. It's so for all the Tubas in the library, including the contra-tuba. There is a way of extending the range of an instrument by editing the SFZ file that describes how the samples are played back. I made such a modification r...

Re: Sonar Sonar Track setup for Aria using Akai MPK49 contro

Sorry I can't help you myself, and Randy Bowser has moved on to doing much more with his composition and creating and producing musicals. We haven't seen him around for a year or more. One could say he "got a life!" But here are some suggestions. Randy wrote a goodly number of tutorials ov...

Re: Sticking Notes In Reaper

Sounds eminently sensible to me Michael.

The time for new programs is not when you have projects to complete, IMHO.

Just as long as Sonar Artist has the notation you need.

John.
