So I have used Finale to write my percussion scores since 2001. I have used VDL ever since it first came out. But I have just started learning Sibelius (I bought Sibelius 5 last year, just didn't use it then b/c I was already in the middle of a few projects) -- I have to say, it is amazing. How did I ever go this long without using it!! It works seamlessly with VDL 2.5, and man, the Sibelius 5.2.5 template is awesome. I am loving life right now haha.
