Ah, for some reason I figured you were using a full version of Finale... I understand how that can be a little difficult. I personally don't like ANY of the Garritan library or Finale sounds... but I never really do my mockups in Finale.Jacktheawesome wrote:Anton! I was hoping you'd show up. Thanks! Unfortunately, as Rew said, that's only with Finale 2012, which is a bit above my budget. I have Printmusic 2011, which is short a few features. Funnily enough, I still prefer the Finale strings to the Garritan strings. The rest of the sounds seem to be pretty good, though. Do you use Finale in your work? It seems like I usually see you using Ableton Live in your demo videos.
But yes, I use Finale all the time, it's my main notation software. I rarely do notation while streaming, because it's not the kind of music that usually needs to be notated. But, I certainly wrote out part of the Receiver soundtrack in Finale while I was working, so people could see how I wrote the melody, and derived the harmony. (Mostly on the track "I Am Listening") And I know you guys see me using Ableton Live a lot, but it's almost always streaming inside of Digital Performer, as kinda a plugin... but that's a whole different topic...
I have been enjoying it so far... will continue listening later this evening...Rewjeo wrote:
