Default a couple VIs, new (to me)

Always eager to report, review, and share.
here's my latest purchases:

GForce ImpOSCar: Cool little synth, well worth it's 89.00 pricetag. Love it.

Garritan Personal Orchestra: I'm sure everyone in the world has this, but heres my .02.
After using MOTU's Symphonic Instrument, I find this to be quite a letdown.
Some OK sounds, but none are as true sounding as those in the MOTU library.
I may use a few violins from this collection along with the MOTU stuff, but that's about the extent of it. Adds nothing to what I already had.

Garritan Jazz and Big Band: Some decent sounding stuff, like the (especially the muted) trumpets, trombones, and some of the saxophones (which is what I bought it for). Also a lot of disc space wasting clutter, like the drumsets, the guitars, and most of the basses.
It'll serve it's purpose (I suppose). I'm not a huge fan of Garritan after these two purchases, but YMMV

I find it is dissapointing that they don't tell clearly that Garritian is 16-bit.
