Elsewhere in this forum, Gary stated that we would not be able to play our Full GPO directly through Finale 2007 because it isn't coded yet for the new Kontakt 2 player used within Finale.
So now that Finale is shipping, here is my concern:
1. Will we be able to play Full GPO out through midi into Studio 2 *and* be able to take advantage of *all* of HP's new bells and whistles?
2. If not, have basic, yet essential instruments (i.e., muted brass and percussion toys) been added to Finale GPO so that we can at least continue doing basic scoring until such time as the Full GPO is coded for Kontakt 2?
Finale 2007 ships with the new Kontakt 2 player and the Finale version of GPO encoded for it. When Gary encodes the full GPO for the Kontakt 2 player, you'll be able to load that into Finale 2007's new player.
In the meantime though, you can still load the current full GPO using it's existing Kontakt 1 player into Finale 2007 with no problem at all. You can use it with Garritan studio being chosen in the midi setup, or directly from Finale's NI interface.
