Ok... for a little lively debate. Some time has passed now since Oveture4 came out, and also since FinaleGPO came out. Which setup do you guys prefer, including if you use other sample libraries in addition to GPO? Which setup and why? if you use one or the other and have not worked with both, please don't respond with all the reasons why you love the one you have unless you've also worked with the other. I'm looking for a real objective comparison between the two.
Also, all the obvious points about Finale being a standard, being perhaps superior for typesetting purposes, etc.. Those discussions have been had many times and don't need to be repeated.
I'm mainly interested in the CURRENT state of affairs in terms of ease of input, ease of editing, ease of setup, humanization of playback, interrpretation of dynamics and other markings during playback, compatability with the important VST plugins and sample libraries, etc.. In other words, if you're a composer and you want to compose with one of these tools and produce audio with them..which do you prefer and why? Overture claims this to be their forte. But Finale has made big strides in this direction in recent years.
