As a Sibelius user, I am very interested in exploring GPO. I realize that there are some hurdles to getting GPO to be the playback device in Sibelius - that's not really my issue. I want to use Sibelius as the composing/arranging/notation program, then use GPO to work on playback. So my question is this (and forgive me if this is so obvious as to not warrant mentioning): is is possible to import MIDI files into GPO, and tweak/modify etc.? In other words, save my Sibelius file as a .mid file, import it into GPO, and work form there.
I know the whole integration of the two is a.) possible, and b.) at times difficult. Until they are, could I do what I am asking above?
Also, as a practical matter, I have a Mac G4, 700 Mhz, 256 Ram. I suspect the memory is much too small, but is the processor fast enough?
Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions. I have been reading the board for a few weeks, and have been very impressed by both the helpfulness and civility.
