New Garritan interface

Garritan today debuted a new user interface for sampled and synthesized musical instruments that allows users to select, load, manipulate, and mix software instruments in one single graphical environment. Users need only select a desired instrument icon from a palette, then drag-and-drop the instrument onto a a desired location on a virtual soundstage. The software supports any number of musical instruments on the virtual stage ranging from a soloist act to a grand symphony orchestra, according to Garritan, and users can save various instrument arrangements to recall later. Audio characteristics such as volume, panning, reverb reflections, and spatial cues are also controlled by positioning scalable musical instrument icons on the virtual soundstage.

Instruments placed closer to the front of the stage increase in volume, while those placed farther to the left or right will produce more sound in the left or right audio channel. The new sample engine is compatible with Mac OS X as well as Windows XP and Windows Vista (specific Mac system requirements were unavailable).
