Re: Finale 2006a maintenance updater has been released
May I also add a very hearty Thank You! to all at Finale.
I've been using Finale for many years (since 1998, if my memory hasn't slipped a cog somewhere). As a software developer I've always understood the great difficulties behind an application like this -- and the stunning achievement that it is. But as a composer, I had always found myself in a difficult relationship with the software, always wanting it to bring the score and its realization in sound closer together.
Then out came Finale 2006 with GPO integration.
While there's always room for improvement -- and Finale has an unparalleled record of pursuing it -- Finale 2006 w/GPO is a composer's dream. That orchestral score I put on the page... plays as writ!
To all at Finale -- and most assuredly, at Garritan, too -- my hat is off to you. Please be aware of my sincere gratitude for your many years of hard work.
