Finale Winds with VDL 2.5

Hey,

I know this has been addressed, but I am still confused.  THis question is mainly to Coach. 

Can you tell me specifically how to setup finale so that I can use VDL 2.5 with the finale wind sounds

I am using Finale 2006 with VDL as a plugin.

thanks!!

I had to get an update from finale, so now I have GPO, but can you check my other topic called ";GPO setup";

thanks!!!

You will want to contact Finale Tech support for help with this issue.  Since this issue is regarding Finale and Finale GPO directly, MakeMusic will be your best source for answers for these issues.

Hey coach,

finale 2006 should've come with Garritan Personal Orchestra samples, correct?

Mine is not showing up in the setup wizard under
";instument set"; under ";select instruments"; and there is no sign of GPO in my finale.

All I see under ";instrument set"; is SmartSynth Soft synth

Is there somewhere where I can update my finale or find the missing GPO?

thanks!!!!
Finale GPO started to be included with Finale 2006.  This would be the only way to do VDL sounds inside as a plugin with band sounds at the same time.  MIDI and VST at the same time was not possible until 2008.  I would recommend using the FInale GPO sounds to setup your wind sounds.  I am not at a location where I have all my archive answers from when I worked at MakeMusic, but I can get you something tonight.  You also might want to check out Finale's Knowledge Base as there should be an article there that would help with the loading of those sounds.

You can do MIDI and VDL but youd have to have VDL outside of Finale and I would not recommend that as it takes a bit more to setup and wont sound as good.  It will also take more processing power.
Hi Coach,

What I was trying to do was use the VDL sounds and get some kind of sound for the woodwinds and brass.  I don't think Garritan came with my version of Finale 2006.  I want to try to use the sounds that came with finale if possible.  If there is a sound library you would recommend that would be good.

I am using Finale 2006, VDL 2.5 as a plugin, I'm using an Asus Laptop, 4 GB ram, Intel Core Duo 2.26 gHz, 320 gb ram.

I just want to have some sound for the brass and woodwinds, I am willing to pay for software, but if I can use what came with Finale, that would be preferred

thanks!

I'm not really familiar with those two, but recognize Smart music soft synth.  I just want to set up finale so that I can write and hear both vdl sounds and the brass and woodwind sounds that came with finale

thanks!!!

Can you please post your system specs?  Are you wanting the winds to be a MIDI generated sound or the more realistic Garritan sounds?  You will not be able to use MIDI and VDL together at the same time from within the program but you would be able to do Garritan and VDL.  I would suggest the latter.

Let us know what you are looking for.

By 'Finale Winds', do you mean the SmartMusic Softsynth or the GPO sounds?
