    GPO, FinMac 2005b, and MIDI device playback?

    Seasons Greetings All!

    I'm getting ready to fire up my new scoring rig: a new iMac G5 (Mac OS Tiger) running Finale 2005b and GPO . I'm also looking at purchasing a new Kurzweil PC161 keyboard to serve as a master controller, input keyboard, and sound generator. I thought it might be a good idea to use some of the Kurz sounds for playback...they're supposed to be rather good and I thought it might take some of the digital "heavy lifting" off of the CPU in terms of sound generation.

    I haven't used GPO with Finale yet, but have been monitoring all of the discussions on this list and NorthernSounds.com. I'm looking forward to diving in, but...can I work on a Finale project and route some of the sounds to GPO and others to MIDI playback via the Kurzweil?

    Thanks in advance and best wishes for 2006,

    You can only use GPO and midi if you use GPO studio.

    If you use GPO as a VST within Finale, you are limited to Finale (and other NI VST's).
