    OvertureSE

    Hi, im posting here about this program, since it is so related to GPO. Weeks ago user "BlueMax" post asking about OvertureSE, he wanted to upgrade from v3.61SE to v4SE. He asked in the Overture forum, but no luck from lot of time...
    Today, the developer answer him. Since im OvertureSE user too, i felt concerned and point some things, too. Well, the thread was simply deleted, instantly.
    Really, i feel bad about this, since from more than two months im asking about some ugly bugs in OvertureSE (and in the full version) too, that make it unusable in some cases (transcribed large notes dont work).
    You can read about that bugs, if they dont become deleted, in the OvertureSE forum, bugs from more than one year old, and here the thread that the Overture guy deleted about upgrade from 3.61 to 4 from BlueMax:

    Hey, that's a rude answer man! The guy ask you about to pay an upgrade from 3 to 4 and you simply put SE users out of your "paying customers"... and probably that`s the reason i spent a month wainting an answer from developer in the SE forum, so, we are "second class" users...
    Maybe if you solve some of the impressive list of bugs it have, some of us will be glad to upgrade to the Overture full version. Meanwhile, maybe you can be a little more kind with people.
    And yep, GPO worst the buy anyway, maybe i understand now why this proggie is not more bundled with GPO in their home page.
    BTW, if you can give a detailed list of SE limitations in your purchase page, users will be glad, i guess.

    Well, really disapointed about this program, i really hope it was the solution for the "sequencer-notation" dilema, but not, lots of bugs and a bad attitude for the customers of SE version.

    You're kidding!

    I'm glad you caught that before it was deleted!

    Wow.... I would have expected a better response than that! Anything would have been better....

    Fine! Finale 2007 it is! An extra $100 well spent for a company that can actually care about its customers! (And obviously has a good relationship with Gary G!)

    I'll bet this was another reason Overture SE was removed from GPO.... Gary probably got hassled too. He's probably not allowed to comment.

    i believe that the Sibelius offer for crossgrade is still valid

    and can be a good option too.

    Bluemax,

    That's a good way to look at it. And you can also feel confident that Finale is going to be around for a long time. There are many music publishers, film composers, major symphony orchestras, etc..., that all use Finale for their livelihood because they think it's the best tool for the job.

    The message I got from them in email was almost as nasty. Definately not a good way to do business.

    No. It may have been a "slip of the tongue", but it still reveals, how he thinks of his customers. I think potential new customers have an interest in knowing this.

    I think it's much ruder for a forum administrator to delete a post simply because he didn't like the question being asked.

    Sorry, but the entire thread was deleted, with all the posts, including my answer, that also was deleted. You cant found it anymore in the geniesoft forum. If he feels his answer was wrong, simply edit it, or apologize was enough.
