Just joined the forum to seek some advice/expertise from fellow GPO users on a Finale-related problem.
While working on a fairly large orchestral project (25-30 GPO and JBB instruments)
I have been experiencing frequent crashes. (Sometimes every 3-4 minutes.)
The crashes are associated with playback (i.e., crashes occur after some editing then an attempt at playback using Finale's standard "play" button on the transport).
This occured on my older Power Mac G5(2.5GB RAM) and is now still occuring on my brand-new Intel Mac Pro (two 3GHz dualcore Xeon, 4GB RAM---a rocket). I am currently running Finale 2007a in Rosetta mode in order to use GPO and JABB (NI Kontakt Player1).
I have been in touch with Finale Tech Support and have had extensive back-and-forthing to no avail. (I have been a Finale user since the 1980's, just starting using Garritan products in the last year.)
Given the fact that the problem involves playback and GPO/Kontakt-Player, I am wondering if anyone has any insight or similar experience with such a problem. Right now I am "partially-paralyzed" as I have to relaunch Finale 6-8 times an hour while working (this involves a 2 minute GPO JBB reload each time!).
Thanks for any feedback.
