I have a Powermac G5 dual 2 Ghz machine with 1 gig ram which I bought specifically to run GPO/Sibelius.

My question: given that my system should be quite fast and the program is supposed to fit handily in 1 gig of RAM, what else can I do to allow more voices? I\'m using my G5\'s audio card for playback - might this be slowing things down? I also tried setting the audio buffer to 512, but this didn\'t seem to help. Would there be any advantage in more RAM?
Any suggestions would be most welcome, as it would be distressing if this is as good as its going to get :-)...
