I'm getting all my gear updated finally. In December, I upgraded to Lion finally. I had to simultaneously buy the upgrade to Snow Leopard. I waited because I was putting off downloading VDL compatibility updates. I am downloading Finale 2012, Kontakt 5 Player, and VDL 2.5.2. Do I still need to download any driver updates for compatibility with Lion or is that somehow built into the upgrade? If I have more updating to do, can I be pointed in that direction?
Depending on whether or not you were using an older Finale template (and what previous version you may have been using), you might consider getting a more current template for Finale 2012. Check [url=http://www.thewritescore.com]The Write Score[/url] for info about that.
If you're using any other audio/midi hardware (audio interface, midi keyboard), you may want to check with the manufacturers to see if those devices require driver updates of any sort.
Other than that, it sounds like you're on the right track. Good luck with the updates!
