    Finale 2010 and kontakt 4

    Is there a way that i can use kontakt 4 as a vst in Finale 2010b. i am using windows 7. when put the kontakt4.dll file in the vst plugin folder of finale, i actually end up finding kontakt among the fx.

    am i doing something wrong?

    Thanks a lot,
    Roberto

    There is a way to create your own Human Playback set for the VSL instruments in K4 using Finale. Unlike Sibelius which we basically have to rely on Jon Loving for (God bless ya John!), Finale has an open architecture that allows you to assign control changes, KS, etc for each instrument, much like the way GPO has been preset for Finale users of 2008 and beyond. It will take some time. As far as where to put the DLL, I have to pass on this as I'm a Mac guy....

    Re: Finale 2010 and kontakt 4

    Hope you get a lot of helpful responses on this, Roberto, because I too would love to know the answer to your question. In a few weeks, I'm going to be installing Kontakt on the computer of an elderly friend, and while he is somewhat knowledgeable about using Finale, he knows very little about using VSTi(s) other than the ones that come with Finale. I know nothing about Finale and don't use it, but was wondering too if VSTi(s) can be accessed from Finale. The spec sheet for the program provides little if any useful info on the subject, and while some folks have asked this type of question on both the Finale and Kontakt forums, the few responses don't appear to provide a definitive answer or better still, provide information on how to set up Finale so that Kontakt could be used. One person suggested renaming some files, but then someone else reported it didn't work. One might think that the answer is either "yes you can" or "no you can't" use the full version of Kontakt or other separately purchased VSTi(s) in Finale, but even that type of answer seems to be missing Hopefully some knowledgeable Finale users can assist Roberto (and me)?.............frank

    i really cannot figure this thing out.

    i mean with windows xp was very straightforward!

    kontakt 4 appears in finale 2010b in the list of FX... but not in the list of vst instruments

    Ciao Roberto,

    provba a verificare di avere il plug in giusto (64bit o 32bit)

    mi pare che Finale usi solo il 32bit...o viceversa.

    Ionltre se usi quello sbagliato (es 8 out o 16 out), lo riconosce solo come effetto, se usi quello giusto (il principale insomma) compare nei VSTi e funziona.

    Any chance we could have that in English? My Italian is not very good, but I think you said something like " if you use the wrong one (eg 8 out or 16 out), recognizes only the effect, if you use the right one (the main "word"??) appears in the VSTi and it works. Ciao............frank

    ho provato fabio ma nessuno dei due funziona. li vede entrambi nella lista degli effetti.

    non so che diavolo sia... ma ho voglia di ricominciare a scrivere musica e ne ho bisogno!!!

    Frank sorry so fabio told me that i need to put eitherway the 64 or the 32bit plugin in the vst folder of finale and not the 16 or 8. those would be recognized by finale as effects.


    hope this help for u.

    for me as i wrote above in italian it does not make a difference though.

    I thought Finale will recognize a VST folder.
