Garritan's Personal Orchestra 4.0 (Mac/Win; $149.95) orchestral library collection is now available as a download version. Version 4 is powered by the ARIA Instrument Engine and adds new features, instrument sounds and updated programming.
Personal Orchestra 4.0 offers select brass samples from Project SAM, new choir sounds and extended ranges for select instruments and Ensemble Presets. The library's new feature, Auto Legato, detects when you are playing a smooth line with overlapping notes and automatically applies correct legato transitions between notes; this feature simplifies the process of creating realistic phrasing and playable trills.
Furthermore, the library includes integrated ambience reverb and stereo stage, MIDI playback and recording features, tunings and Scala file support, easy program authorization and more.
Users of previous versions may download the upgrade for $49.95. For more information, please visit www.garritan.com.
