Big disappointment ...
I use Finale 2006 exclusively with my full GPO for my compositions. The moment came to record my 'masterpiece' to a .wav file. In Finale I went to File/Save Special/Save as audio file .. and then .. I got this;
'Finale 2006 does not yet use Native Instrument VST Sounds when saving as audio. Instead Smart Music SoftSynth sounds will be used. ....................... Keep watching www.finalemusic.com for a free product update which will allow you to save your audio files using Native Instruments VST sounds'.
Does anyone know of any other way of saving GPO sounds through Finale other than connecting up an external recorder? Gary, I have read the manual and found a reference to 'Record' using the Studio but I don't know if this can be done with Finale.
I do have a small Boss 8-track Digital Studio (BR-864) connected and I can record the music. The problem is that the recording is coloured' and 'muffled'. Even when just listening to the music using the front jack on the unit the music is muffled. If I disconnect the unit and then plug my earphones back into the computer the sound is fine. I have tried disabling all effects on the unit but still no improvement. I am presently waiting for Roland to call me back.
Sooooo .. until Make Music provide the update, does anyone have any suggestions.
