Put these files inside the "FinaleAU" folder in your "Finale " folder. Do the following if you intend to use Garritan instruments in a score that was previously configured for another instrument set for instance, Finale's SoftSynth. These instructions pertain to the Aria Player included with Finale and the full Garritan. You may want to reserve Channel 10 for unpitched percussion - although this is not necessary when using Garritan instruments, it can be helpful if you want to preserve the ability to switch back and forth between Garritan instrument playback and SoftSynth or General MIDI playback.

Bowers Jr. PhotoScore 6,7,8 Ultimate 7 is better. Finale b,b,c, d, I think we've discussed this before and the bottom line is this.
I hope that I'm wrong on 1 above. However, when Garritan World Instruments was released, I reviewed it and asked Daniel if a soundset was on the way. The reply was non-committal at first and negative a short while later when I pressed him on it prior to publication of the review.
I can't see anything changing. Shame, as I'd happily pay a reasonable amount for one. Win 7. Sib 6. Web: www. I know what you mean, Rob, but I think they'd have done something about it before now. I'm sure they'd rather get Sibelius users to switch to Finale. If not, it shouldn't take much tweaking to 'make it so'. To get the soundset up to date, I'm speculating that it'll mostly be a matter of simply adding the "Orchestral Strings" category of instruments, the new Pianos and Harps, the new SAM brass stuff, and perhaps taking out some things left over from GPO4 that aren't properly implemented in GPO5 the sfz files and samples are there for things like the old GPO4 pianos and a few others Not sure how helpful it would be, but I've attempted to demonstrate quickly how to do a manual sound set in this thread at the makemusic forums.
Eventually I'll make an xml soundworld file that takes advantage of the key-switches. It's not that hard to do if you want to try your hand at it.
Avid looses nothing if Sibelius customers can use GPO5. It's doubtful that access to Garritan products would sway many people trying to decide between Sibelius and Finale, but why take a chance? There is also the matter of maintaining customer good will, but that doesn't seem to be of overwhelming importance to Avid. They've said they will. We're just enquiring how they're getting on. Sitting down and plugging in the 'spec sheet' values for a Sibelius sound-set is easy enough OK, I don't know of a spec sheet for GPO5 we users can get, but we can open the XML and SFZ files, look at them, and compare , but that doesn't mean it will sound good when one actually tries to use them.
When it comes to integrating the 'new patches' for Score Translation They can have 5 or 6 parameters that can be jogged around during playback to emulate natural timber changes, detuning, articulations, and on and on.
Getting all that where it's doing the instrument justice takes a lot of trial and error. It's a really busy time of year for 'just getting scores and parts' delivered and massaging client needs though so That will probably "work" in the sense that it will give exactly the same results as GPO4 - i. Getting the new string samples working will need some work. Yes, but if it works with the GPO4 soundset, that much is a great start. It would also mean that a brand new GPO owner who doesn't have version 4 to fall back on, at least has a great foundation to get plug and play use out of the Library in Sibelius.
Plenty of grunt work, but also scads of TIME trying the stuff with a variety of scores as to tweak everything out so it actually does the instrument justice, and having others do the same. Actually, these days I don't think Avid worry much about losing customers, period. Ethically speaking, I definitely want permission before sharing it. I have NO interest in trying to sell or charge anything This much did require running some scripts to change BankIDs and rename some of the instruments in the soundset.
Also, it's just rough placement of the instruments and switches at this time. To get every instrument to really sound good and offer variations of the instruments for different styles and characters will require many hours of playing scores and adding tweaks to real time controllers. That will require permission to distribute some copies for 'feedback' from Sibelius users who are willing to load it up and try it. Here is what should be working so far: Legacy GPO4 content should be working.
GPO5's new Choirs should be working. Still need to play some scores with mutes and stuff to confirm it works well enough. GPO5 Pianos should be working. I've not even implemented the new Solo Violins yet. Adding all the new string stuff is going to take a day or two all by itself.
New GPO5 Harps. Hopefully the Legacy harps already work, but there are still some to add. New Organs. Again, legacy Organs should be working I haven't even peeked at percussion instruments yet, so some of the instruments in this version of the soundset may be broken. This will require some time and studying Given proper permission to get a few copies of this out there for testing, I should be able to get all the new content added over the next week or two.
I bought GPO5 without thinking about the soundset. This sounds marvellous! I have asked Avid when we can hope they produce a soundset but they are busy with other things right now.
If you contact Joe Pearson att Avid joe. I would be glad to help with testing. Lennart Christianson Back to top All threads. Hide picture. Quick reply To add a reply to the end of this thread, type it below, then click Reply. Back to top All threads.
