    I'm changing my plan and i'm going to buy finale 06 instead. here are a few questions.

    1) i'm buying finale 06 from a student descount site because i'm currently a student...is the full version with GPO included?

    2) Does the program come with a manual that tells you exactly how to integrate GPO with finale?

    3) And one more, how did all of you become so good at this stuff haha? Did you just buy it and then fiddle around? I'm very surious.

    2) Does the program come with a manual that tells you exactly how to integrate GPO with finale? Not out of the box - you need to download the latest free Finale update which includes a .pdf Finale/GPO guide

    3) And one more, how did all of you become so good at this stuff haha? Did you just buy it and then fiddle around? I'm very surious. There's a fair amount of experimentation required. But the key to getting good GPo playback from Finale is good writing/scoring with plenty of dynamic and expression markings, and a reasonably fast computer with as much RAM as you can afford.

    Hi n3wman918 and welcome to the forum!

    The version of GPO that comes bundled with Finale 2006 is a lite version. It is quite capable and is integrated well with Finale. There is a 100 page pdf manual written by forum member Thad that is in the Finale 2006d upgrade (you can upgrade online).

    How did the members get so good? There a lot of people here who help each other. That's how

    one more thing, since it's a lite version that comes with Finale...does it download with finale or is it a separate cd?

    Finale is not available as a download.

    The downloadable Finale demo does not include any part of GPO.

    let me rephrase the question, i meant when you INSTALL finale, do you install the GPO lite from a separate disc? Sorry about wording it wrong.

    Finale GPO installs with FInale 2006.

    When you purchase you have the option of 1 DVD or a number (I don't know how many) of CD's.
