New Garritan Sound Library Wins Industry Awards

Stocks in this article: MMUS

MakeMusic, Inc. (NASDAQ: MMUS) today announced that MusicTech Magazine has awarded Garritan Instant Orchestra with both their Choice and Value Awards. Received by the industry with numerous high profile reviews, Instant Orchestra is a completely new type of orchestral software library that makes the creation of orchestral music quick and easy.

Industry publications have recognized how Instant Orchestra is changing the landscape of virtual sound libraries. Computer Music said, “Instant Orchestra is absurdly simple to use and sounds a lot more expensive than it is,” and Sound On Sound remarked: “Garritan has consistently demonstrated that he is on the side of the musician, and his latest library looks set to keep the musical community on board, on budget and creatively engaged.” Several reviewers have remarked that by facilitating the quick creation of orchestral music, Instant Orchestra is ideal for scoring video and games.

Part of Instant Orchestra’s secret lies in its wide variety of pre-configured instrument collections, which are organized by mood. These collections take the guesswork out of what combination of instruments should be used to create the desired atmosphere, whether the musician’s goal is intimate or massive, spooky or sublime, natural or other-worldly.

“With traditional orchestral software libraries, musicians create scores by writing music for each individual member of the orchestra, one instrument at a time,” said Gary Garritan, MakeMusic director of instrumental sciences. “Instant Orchestra empowers musicians to quickly create Hollywood-style orchestrations, in a wide variety of moods, by writing just a few staves of music.”

“Gary Garritan has done it again,” said Karen van Lith, MakeMusic CEO. “Just as Garritan Personal Orchestra revolutionized the sound of software instruments, Instant Orchestra reinvents the way orchestral music is created, by simplifying and streamlining the process. What’s more, by empowering more musicians to create orchestral music, Instant Orchestra expands the market for software instrument libraries.”
