Garritan Personal Orchestra 5 is officially here - offering a major update to its award-winning predecessors.

The Garritan Personal Orchestra 5 contains more than 70% more patches compared with the previous version. There are also even more strings sounds including section, small section and solo with a wide variety of bowing techniques - the latter feature really helping set this sound library apart and providing an authentic orchestral feel.

GPO 5 also incorporates Sonic Morphing, an innovative technology that produces seamless dynamics ranging from the very quietest pianissimo to the loudest, most audacious forte sounds – with a continuous variety of timbre changes along the way.

Whilst it is a new launch product, it has already made waves in the music industry. MusicTech awarded Garritan's latest software offering 9/10.

Sound on Sound added: ''... Garritan Personal Orchestra offers everything you need to get started with computer-based orchestration straight right out of the box… A thoroughly comprehensive orchestral library which omits no instruments of note, and throws in some rare ones… despite its modest price, this library features some of the best sampled woodwinds I have heard… its samples are well chosen, versatile and expressive.''
