Garritan Personal Software available for Sibelius 4.

Sibelius USA, Inc., 1407 Oakland Blvd., Ste. 103, Walnut Creek, CA 94596; (925) 280-0600;;; $219.

Sibelius Software has announced the release of Garritan Personal Orchestra Sibelius Edition, a complete version of the acclaimed sample library for use with Sibelius 4. This integrated set of orchestral sounds will provide composers with a "plug-and-play" solution for achieving top quality playback within Sibelius.

The Garritan Personal Orchestra (GPO) is one of the most popular, quality collections of all major orchestral instruments ever assembled. The Sibelius Edition of the library includes the complete instrument set featured in the original GPO collection, and is integrated with Sibelius' existing sample Kontakt Player, developed with Native Instruments.

The new release adds a huge range of new sounds that can be used on their own or with other Sibelius Sounds. This release also features functional enhancements to the recently released Sibelius 4 and, coupled with GPO's own programming, allows for powerful and sensitive rendition of articulation and expression markings (including slurs, bowing and tremolo indications, hairpins and other dynamics, as well as all standard articulations) during playback. The library provides unparalleled playback capabilities, all from within Sibelius itself. Users can also export an audio file to create a CD or an MP3 file of their music.
