I have a Powerbook G4 1Ghz, 1Gb, OS 10.2.8, and I'm using Sibelius routed through to ProTools, which hosts a GPO player. I've finally realized that ProTools' performance truly sucks. Tracktion appears to handle GPO like a dream. Just one thing that I'm missing is the ability to route Sibelius to Tracktion, for real time playback. How can one do this? Are there software midi routers available that can achieve this? If anyone has used Sibelius and Tracktion in this way, or found an even better solution with possibly a different DAW, please let me know. I guess the overall question is: What options are available for routing Sibelius through to GPO? I really don't want to use the GPO Studio - on my hardware I get similar performance to ProTools. Why is it that Tracktion can achieve such good results??
Do a search on this site for `Bidule'. It is a virtual MIDI router that Joseph Burell highly recommends. I'm betting this would be the answer for you.
