A complete world instruments collection.
Garritan's World Instruments sound library contains hundreds of high-quality instruments from all corners of the globe. Garritan World Instruments offers more ethnic instruments than any other single library. You can build instrument groupings exactly as you wish. It lets you create solos, various sections and groupings, Ewe ensembles, Taiko ensembles, drumming circles, Oriental orchestras, or any group of your choosing.
No sampler required
The entire World Instruments library is integrated into the ARIA Player and works as a virtual instrument. There's no need to purchase a separate sampler.
The controls in Garritan World Instruments are streamlined and standardized so you can quickly become familiar wiht the library. Advanced functions such as auto-legato, playable tremolos, alternation, tongue/slur, and other controls provide realistic results with minimal effort.
Garritan World Instruments supports all popular formats, both on Mac and PC, as a standalone program or as a plug-in (VST, RTAS and OS X Audio Units), and works with supported notation programs. Garritan World Instruments can transform your computer into an ethnomusicologist's dream.
A unique feature of the Garritan World Instruments is support for Scala files to adjust to different temperaments and tunings. While many ethnic sample libraries are equal temperament, based on Western tuning, Garritan World Instruments supports Scala, a standard file format for musical tunings that supports hundreds of different scales. With Scala support, musicians can play an instrument in its native form.

Comments about Garritan World Instruments Sound Library:
The program installed and operated without the least technical issue. Most of the sounds are too artificial and I will probably never use them. If software could be returned, I would have returned this immediately upon first listening. I use Akai keyboard and EWI MIDI triggering devices, and the YRG Gen2. The various percussion sounds are decent, the strings decent, the wind instruments unusable. No more Garritan for me.
