    Finale vs. Sibelius for GPO integration

    Call me a big ol' dummy if you will, but I just prefer simplicity! I love how Finale 2007 has that GPO "lite" built right in, making it SUPER easy to score a project, simply telling it to use French Horn and *BAM* there it is. No assigning MIDI channels, no going to external software or devices - just totally self-contained and invisible to the user.

    So - will the Kontact2 version of GPO be just as seamless in Finale 2007, or would Sibelius with its GPO addon be more streamlined in that regard?


    I'm after "easy."

    Not to start a war - seriously - but the Sibelius GPO crossgrade works the same way: select your instrument when you set up your score, and it loads.
    Simple enough to change it - if you want a different solo violin, etc...

    Just to keep the record straight...

    Sounds good to me!

    I'll have to seriously consider that option.

    The downside is that Sibelius apparently is no good for Intel Macs. Not that I have one, but I still plan to make the switch when possible.

    Oh well - by the time I can afford the Mac and some new studio bits, Sibelius will be Intel Mac ready.
