OT: Virtual Hornline?

Apologies if this has been brought up before in the past, but wouldn't it be nice to have good quality Drum Corps-esque Brass libraries.  Granted GPO marching band sounds are alright and gives you a sense on what it may sound like.  I am just curious if there is any one else out there that might feel the same way...
Hi Dave,

I have Finale 2009b running well however I have not used it much with non Kontakt based libraries yet. In general, I use the EWQL libraries directly in Sonar however I did just verify the following libs load correctly in Finale 2009:

Kompakt; EWQL SO Platinum XP Pro, EWQL SC, Colossus & RA
Play; SO Plat Plus Complete, Stormdrum2, Goliath

I would check that you have the latest Finale 2009 update, followed by the the latest versions of your EW stuff.

There was a known Finale problem similar to the one you describe with their Play based libraries. I believe that was on Play version 1.1.3. After the recent update to 1.1.6, I have not heard of any similar issue.

Know it has been a while.. .but since Finale 2009 came out.. anyone having problems loading East West Sounds.  I am.... I just upgraded and when I choose EW in the VST menu, I just get a tab bar unable to expand it like I can in Finale 2008... weird.
I understand that Finale can only host NI based VST or AU instruments so that counts out East West PLAY, the new VSL  or the new Garritan ARIA engines. I have read of some folks having some limited success with non NI based VST's but would not bank on it.

Rumor has it that  Makemusic will follow the lead of Sibelius and utilize more open hosting of VST's etc in Finale 2009 which should be out anytime soon.

Sample the sound of a rifle/flag/sabre being caught, and I'd say you have the whole thing!

Haha...that be great...

Astonishing indeed.... Perhaps even more extraordinary if we combine VDL with say a VHL and get VDC (Virtual Drum Corps)  ;-)  Just dreaming some....

I may be wrong, but PLAY (the new player by East West) comes in VST and AU formats. It requires an iLok dongle, but if you're using a host that supports VST or AU (which Finale and Sibelius now do), I think you could do this. Granted, these libraries may be a little more geared towards working in a DAW environment, so it's debatable how effective the workflow may be within a notation program. Still, functionality-wise I think it would work. When in doubt, check with the manufacturers first.

if I bought the East West sounds, can I load them into the Kontakt Player 2 that came with VDL2.5? or is it another program that I would have to set up for use with Finale?

The current East West libraries are NI Kompakt Libraries which can't be loaded into KP2. They can however be loaded into Kompakt, or full Kontakt and hosted in Finale. They are in a transition to their new Play platform but these newer libraries are not compatible with NI samplers or being hosted in Finale.

What about with Sibelius 5?

Yea it is pretty sweet to have an awesome brass library to function with the astonishing percussion library of VDL. ;-)
