    Finale 2007c and Kontakt 2 player full gpo

    OK, I'm just thoroughly confused. Is it safe to go in the waters of windows xp Finale 2007c and the NI Kontakt 2 player for Full GPO. Depending on where I look: here or MakeMusic forum, I just can't figure out what the story is. Any geniuses out there have this figured out?

    The latest that I understand is that it works except that human playback crashes or doesn't understand the KP 2 instruments, thus there is a beta of the Finale VST dll. Is this hear-say or fact?

    Ever so puzzled,
    Bill

    It is fact, but not the whole fact.

    There is a version (1.1.0.18) of FinaleVSTHost.dll, that is said to be more stable than the standard version (1.1.0.19). You can obtain 1.1.0.18 from Finale Support. You may, however, get more stability by routing Finale's MIDI Output to KP2 stand alone. That is what I do now with Kontakt 2 - I started using this approach yesterday and there were no crashes all day long. Playback with HP starts much faster and saving is much faster.

    It is not HP, that crashes, it is said .dll. HP itself is stable, and although it doesn't yet recognize GPO KP2 by default, you can edit the Instrument Techniques to make it do so.

    can you "save special" -> "save as audio" by doing as you have?

    Not directly, but I could use Audacity to record the output of Kontakt.

    I have now

    This is what I get: excerpt from Claude Debussy: Six Épigraphes Antiques I

    There is a slight distortion, that I could have avoided by turning the Master control down.

    Very Nice - How did you get Audacity to open the sound card with K2 loaded?

    I didn't do anything. I just started Audacity.
