    I use GPO with sibelius: symphonic movement

    this is the finale to a symphony in G minor I composed a couple of years ago. I have it on my site. I compose at the piano then orchestrate with sibelius with GPO coupled. I only have sib 3. I am wary about getting sib 4 because I know the GPO is coupled into that and I am wondering how crescendi and dynamics will work there.
    here is the link to the symphony uploaded at my site. I hope this works as I havent done this before.

    whoops I noticed it cuts off: I guess there is a bandwidth limit!

    Well, Sib 4 is available with or without the GPO included. You ought to be able to download a demo and see first hand what problems you might have. You might also find good information on the Sibelius Technical Chat page.

    Hi and welcome to the forum. This is a lovely work that you have composed and rendered. It's great to hear such works of others presented as you have here. I hope to hear more from you in the future.

    A warm welcome to the forum, Stephen!

    Beautifully composed (and conducted), this is an oustanding
    introduction of your work to us.

    I've listened through this finely crafted movement several
    times with much pleasure, and with admiration.

    Compelling, mature work, Stephen, that not only has much
    to say, but which also says it well.

    Bravo!

    A member since 2004, what took you so long to let everybody hear some of your work.
    I enjoyed this piece very much indeed. The call - reply sequences between the various sections are great. Please don't take so long before your next post.

    Thanks,

    Ray

    Better late than never and it is one of the better pieces I've heard on this forum.

    You did a wonderful job and let us hear from you again, soon.

    Very nice - the opening is quite entrancing. The use of many small solo passages is quite effective, and the progression/development of ideas is clear and assured. This feels like a very solid, well crafted work. It reminded me of some of Walton's work (first symphony) - and I mean that as a compliment!

    As to Sibelius 4 - if you get the crossgrade ($49), you do not have to get a different version of GPO. As to dynamics, hairpins: they work very well. In essence a dynamic marking is given a Mod wheel value (which you now insert by hand), that can be adjusted, and hairpins are manipulated in the properties panel - no plug-in to run. I used GPO with Sib 3, and I find Sib 4/GPO integration much easier to use.

    Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to future posts.

    Welcome Stephen.

    This is indeed a wonderful introduction to yourself and work.

    I will agree with comments on being well written.
    I really liked the delicacy involved... The conversation between voices, dances between playful and serious.


    Truly well done!

    Stephen,
    Welcome to the forum and bravo on an excellent symphony movement. The development of themes was handled quite well. I enjoyed this immensely.
