Composers Edition contains all the same instruments, the same number of velocity layers and alternate samples as the Professional Edition, but the samples are at 24bit 48KHz instead of 96Khz and are in Mono instead of Stereo. This reduces the size to 5.7GB of data, and comes on one DVD instead of 3. The full colour booklet is also included.
Compact Edition ( Download Only) condenses the essential gamelan sound into 3 plug-and-play sets. This means that you get all the tuned instruments ( reduced versions ) - the big gongs, paired metallophones and the kettle gongs, combined and arranged across a chromatic keyboard, ready to play.
This set still weighs in at 2 GB, and, say Soniccouture, is ideal for anyone that wants the essence of gamelan without breaking the bank or the hard drive.
