Have you tried playback in Finale to any sound libraries (GPO and Noteperformer and ? I think ?) just for testing during writing ? If so, how are they ? GREAT tutorial and piece. Thanks for taking the time ! Rare to see one covering notation, orchestration, DAW, etc. all in one Vid !

Hi Bob,

I just replied to you on the youtube video. Here's what I wrote:

Really appreciate your kind words. You brought up a good point I forgot to mention: in Finale, I play things back with the built in Garritan orchestra. I've never bothered trying to get my VSL or other instruments to work with Finale, because it's kind of a "reward" the first time I pop the midi in to Cubase and get to hear the initial sounds with the VSL instruments (even before keyswitches, etc.) It's kind of like a delayed gratification thing :)

Understood. Reason I asked is GPO always sounded crummy in Finale but the newer sounds are much much better at following articulation marks, etc. (I think Noteperformer in particular). Hope you keep your tutorials coming, and best of luck with your cello work's success. Really nice work.
