Now available for free download is a [i]Quick Start[/i] PDF document which quickly outlines all the steps for configuring VDL:2 to Sibelius or Finale. This document is now included in every VDL:2 package, however this may be helpful if you're still trying to figure out how all this stuff works together.

Regaurding that statement in your FAQ; Do they have any Virtual Midi Cables for mac? I checked out both of those, and those are both for PC.[/quote]

I will get this updated to be a little more clear in regards to how this fits in with Macintosh.  Thanks for pointing this out so that we can make this better.

Thank you. I should have figured that out, but I thought Printmusic setup was different than the normal Finale listed in the quickstart guide.
Download and read the Quickstart guide.  A VMC is not needed for Mac.

Dean - good eyes. Thanks for catching that! We'll get it fixed in the next printing, and will have the updated version on the site asap.
small errata here. . .

The last line on page 7 should say Finale instad of Sibelius. Like the bottom of page 8.

I know it's small, but to the easily confused user (sometimes me) it could be confusing.
