Garritan’s Personal Orchestra 4 is state-of-the-art software that reproduces the sounds of the musical instruments in a symphony orchestra, right from your computer. This award-winning collection of software instruments includes well over 200 software instruments - delicious strings, joyous brass, intimate woodwinds, powerful percussion, glorious concert organ, Steinway virtual concert piano, heavenly harps and more. You get high quality orchestral instruments, from Steinway, Stradivari, Guarneri, Haynes and others, all at a very reasonable price.

ARIA Advanced Instrument Engine - No Sampler Required
Garritan’s Personal Orchestra 4 now includes the advanced new ARIA engine, Garritan’s highly-optimized sample player featuring efficient performance, fast sample loading, and low CPU demand. The reliable ARIA engine is in use in Microsoft Songsmith, SONY Acid Pro, AKAI EWI USB and Finale 2009/10.

28 Ensemble Presets
In addition to the extensive collection of instruments (see instrument list in the features section), this new version includes 28 pre-arranged Ensemble Presets for various types of orchestras, sections, ensembles, duos, trios, quartets and other instrument combinations.

Integrated Ambience & Stereo Stage
Another enhancement in version 4 is that it now integrates the high-quality Ambience reverb with the ARIA Player and has individual mixing sends for each instrument. Stereo Stage imparts spacious stereo imagery for all the included instruments.

MIDI Playback and Recording Features
The Standalone ARIA Player allows you to load and playback MIDI files. You can also produce audio recordings of the MIDI file or record yourself playing live.

Ensemble Making - Creating Your Own 'Personal' Orchestra
Garritan’s Personal Orchestra 4 provides individual instruments from which you build your own ensembles and sections. Construct solos, duos, trios, quartets, chamber groups, ensembles, sections or a full symphony orchestra - the way you want.

Universal Format
This collection supports all popular formats, Mac and PC, as a standalone program or as a plug-in (VST, RTAS, and OSX Audio Units), works with supported notation programs and works in 64-bit operating systems (Windows only).

Suited for Everybody
Professional film composers can use this collection for quick orchestral sketches and capturing creative ideas. Hobbyists can use it for adding orchestrations to their tracks.
