GPO5 woodwinds don’t have a staccato articulation. I’ve fooled around with notes of short duration, velocity, and the “length” control but nothing sounds like a true staccato, which is tongued.. Any ideas?
Thanks, I expected as much. I’d love to see a GPO6 with additional articulations. The Garritan samples are second to none in my opinion. I have the BBC “Discover” orchestra, and prefer the Garritan by far.
Also, I've just come across the "Virtual Playing Orchestra", which is a free library that works in ARIA. It's not bad for the money, and the samples work well as complements to GPO -e.g. layering both together. It has staccato Wind samples, so that's something.
It uses different key switches from GPO, but the sfz instrument definitions can be edited.
I used VPO before buying GPO5. Great starting platform, but the GPO samples and dynamics are much better. It is an option for the occasional part though. Other Garritan libraries are a possibility.. I’ll check them out. Thanks for the input... always appreciated.
