    Question about Finale/Sibelius

    with Finale and Sibelius, they both include limited versions of GPO. If I have GPO already, and if I don't care about the other free sounds included with finale and Sibelius, is it ok to not install the sounds that come with them? Will Finale/Sibelous work completely as well with the full version of GPO? the templates open, etc.?

    Yes, you can skip installing the Sibelius Sounds Essential, however you will be missing some sounds. GPO is only orchestral/keyboard - no guitars, for example. Also, as the samples are little less cpu intensive, they are good for some larger scores. I use GPO all the time, and it works very well in Sibelius, but I still to use the sounds that come with GPO. If you have room on your hard drive for them, I'd install them.

    Hope that helps.
