    Double stops and multiphonics impossible? (using Finale 2006 and GPO)

    I have several pieces I have on Finale 2006 and all double stops and multi phonics only play one note on those certain instruments.

    I tried looking up the "double stop" tutorial but it seems far more suited to a sampler program than Finale. Is there some setting or plug in that allows instruments to play double stops/multiphonics on Finale?

    Thanks for any help,
    Wesley

    To play double stops, make sure polyphony > 1 in the Kontakt Player. It is the rightmost small box below CPU usage.

    Thanks (tak?) - that was what I needed to know. It was set to 4 (like it should be for strings) but wasn't playing 2 notes in SOME cases, but it was in most cases - so it means the problem is in Finale.

    A question for Moogie: How are you notating the 'multiphonics'?

    I have used this technique when writing for 'real' instruments, but was not aware that it was possible in Finale. I am curious.

    Are you trying to write multiphonics for woodwinds or brass? I'm not sure those are even implemented in GPO (not to mention Finale)...
