I already own GOS which I use with GigaStudio and Finale. I am committed to Finale as a sequencer, but I am not totally happy with the sound quality I am getting from GOS and Giga. Probably my fault because I am not technically adept enough to know how to get better sound quality.
Anyway, I was wondering if I should switch to Personal Orchestra. I own a copy of Kontakt, but have never used it and have no idea how to even load an instrument. The interface seems rather primitive and I don't know how to link it up to Finale's MIDI output.
Do you have to know Kontakt to use Personal Orchestra? And will it work with Finale? If so, what components would I have to purchase? Is Personal Orchestra easy (or easier) to use compared to Giga and Kontakt? And what is the secret to getting the kind of sound quality I hear on many of the Demos?
