I have to make a serious decision - in order to maximize my spending dollar I have to get the very most out of every purchase. Here's the big question:
How complete is the GPO bundled with Finale 2007?
Why? If it's quite complete - very comparable.... I may have to consider selling GPO (and a few other things) and just buy Finale 2007 and use its "internal" GPO.
However, if the included stuff is no comparison to the full GPO (such as missing instruments or lacking quality) then I'll have to consider another option.
I'm rather hoping Finale's bundled GPO is at least 75% as good as the full GPO...... but then, if it is - why would they even sell a "CODA GPO" addon? (The full GPO we know and love.)
I see that the Finale page says it has 100+ GPO instruments bundled....
...the GPO page doesn't list how many instruments there are by a specific number....
If I do this quick enough - I might even get the Christmas tune finished for the CD and get a couple bucks back!
