Despite a lack of popularity when compared to Finale and Sibelius, Overture still blows them out of the water. I simply can not believe how frustrating it is to try to write good mock-ups in Sibelius 4. You can not edit midi data, select things with filters and change their playback, alter the effect of an articulation, etc.
Overture must come out on top. Everybody pull for Don to get Mac version out and start fresh with marketing.
My online music demo is done entirely in Overture. With Finale or Sibelius, I could have only done the sheet music for these pieces! With Overture I did both simultaneously, and I could set notes to any of Kontakt 2 parameters based on articulation or velocity. Humanization was also a cinch.
Now I love Sibelius' video Window, and Overture does have a few bugs. But I have been looking for other software I could use in case Overture no longer updated and there is nothing as versatile. Even Cubase doesn't actually have good enough notation interactivity to matter to me.
