next february my financial situation gets a new impulse (a saving deposite is paying off).
At the moment I am working with Mozart Notation and I am very pleased about the ease of inputting notes, editing, hairpin assigments, and a lot of other things..... but it has its limitations. To summarize in a few sentences: when using the score in Sonar (midi import) and for a decent playback according to GPO standards I have to do a lot of work twice.
Some of you are working with Sibelius and others have Finale, which has its limitations also when working together with GPO (as I understood).
- Mozart only knows velocity as a volume control
- Mozart cannot work together with MidiOX/-yoke like situations
- Mozart has pedal markings (controls) but not suitable for GPO legato as layed out in several tutorials
- Mozart is strictly Midi channel based
But to get faster "raw" working material I am thinking of buying another notation program.
Which one is suitable for me? And now there are thousands of answers possible. That's why I have this as the subject. Please tell me something about it, why or why not. I don't have friends in "music". Maybe more important: I don't want to spend months and months learning how to use this new program.
Yes, I already downloaded the demo versions and tried them, but I found out that they aren't the latest versions, at least they refused to work with GPO somehow. So they were useless for me.
