    Tips for making Garritan Personal Orchestra 5 sound better

    For years, Garritan Personal Orchestra was my only sample library. When I upgraded to GPO 5 with Finale 25, I was shocked by how bad it sounded out of the box. They had removed the direct reverb option. Reviewers bragged that the library was mixed dry, but that is nothing to brag about if you...

    Finale student pricing

    It's such a shame that the special pricing for students is available only within the US :( I was going just yesterday to purchase the v26, and I found out that living in Europe, my only option is to go for a full retail. 99$ vs 600$ is not a neglectable difference… I really hope MakeMusic...

    Your opinion on Noteperformer 3

    Is Sibelius more user - and key command - friendly than Finale?

    I like to use key commands, and with some crucial exceptions, Logic is quite good at offering ket commands (and menu commands, and contextual menus) for it's important functions. But Logic has stopped developing as a score app, and Dorico is still too far away from being usable for me (plus...

    Hi, Just about to look at a new MBP. I primarily use my iMac 27 5K for composing, recording, mixing, creating large scores, but for working on the road and general portability, will a 13 inch MBP i5 suffice? What's everyone using?
