Features and Benefits

You can produce breathtaking orchestral music

Garritan Personal Orchestra democratized the creation of orchestral music by making a comprehensive collection of virtual orchestral instruments both accessible and affordable. GPO 5 continues in this tradition by vastly expanding the number of included instruments and offering new techniques, performance spaces and reverbs, and instrument body resonances. The result empowers you to produce truly inspiring symphonic sounds with a much higher level of realism.

Create ensembles of varying sizes with individual instruments

  • Enjoy the highest quality collection of orchestral instruments ever sampled. All of the major instruments of the orchestra are included: strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and keyboards.
  • Build your orchestra one instrument at a time, exactly as you wish. Create solos, duos, trios, quartets, chamber groups, ensembles, sections or a full symphony orchestra.
  • Play divisi and separate lines for each instrument; be free from fixed-size section samples.
  • Experience each instrument’s own individual character and nuance; they are individually expressive and can interact with each other just like genuine players.
  • Select from a collection of pre-configured instrumental combinations for your convenience.
