Instant Orchestra vs. Personal Orchestra?
Instant Orchestra is for those who do not want to spend time building orchestrations with one instrument or section at a time. It provides pre- packaged groups of instruments, combined sections, orchestral effects, and mood-based presets. Instant Orchestra is designed for those who know little about orchestration or do not have the time to build them. The idea is to provide a large variety of lush, playable orchestrations with the least time and effort.
Garritan Personal Orchestra's focus is on individual solo instruments and some sections of instruments in order to build orchestrations. Usually knowledge of orchestration is required. Instant Orchestra can be a perfect complement to Garritan Personal Orchestra.
