adding a synth part to my score?

Hey guys, I am pretty sure this has been talked about before, but I cant find any answers that quite relate to my question. I am just wondering how I would add a synth part to my score to play with my vdl2.5 sounds. I dont know how to set up the midi in finale 07 so that I can access the synth sound from another source (since there isn't one in VDL) without turning off VDL. I hope I was clear enough with my question. Thanks.

I think that about covers it coach. Thanks for the info :) so my only other question would be, what is the cheapest way or place to get the 2008 upgrade that you know of?

If you are a registered user of a previous version of Finale, I believe the only way you can update it to v2008 would be to do so directly from MakeMusic. Doing this should be less expensive than purchasing a brand new license for the Educational Finale 2008. You should be able to find more info at http://www.finalemusic.com
Dan,

See my reply to your bass guitar problem. The steps are the same and there will be a synth staff in the upcoming indoor template.

So there is three options: 1.�� Purchase an upgrade to 2008 and you wil be able to do what you want right away, 2.�� Purchase an additional Synth library which would give you what you want in addition to other sounds for later use, 3.�� Use a program like Bidule which would cost $75 I believe still and that would allow for this from inside of that program after a set up.�� there is actually another option but this will not be any easier.�� The best option is going to be Option 1 then 2...not because you should upgrade, just because it will either be easier in the long rung or because it will allow you the best sounds.�� You will still need an additional synth library with Option 4.

Hello,

I have just upgraded to 2008 along with VDL 2.5.  Can you please provide to me the steps that I would take in order to add a Synth Part to my Finale 2008 Template Score? My OS is Windows Vista if that helps.

Kind Regards,
Dan

Are you an educator of some kind? If so, I've seen it at www.academicsuperstore.com fairly cheap. Thank goodness for teacher discounts!

I got my Sibelius 3 back in the day through them as a competitive upgrade from Finale, it was the best price I could find online at the time and they were really quick with delivery--I'd recommend them as well.
yes I am...I will check it out :)  Thanks Ralph

Sam...

2008 has the opportunity to use the MIDI and AU sounds at the same time, unlike 2007.�� If you are usng Finale 2007 with VDL as a plugin from within Finale, then you would need to have a Synth Library that could be used with FInlae in the same way.�� I use Nostalgia which has its own Kontakt Player.�� Not sure if this is Intel compatible or not,
