I'm a Finale 2007c.r2 user (no HP, manual MIDI programming) who
upgraded to the new full GPO for K2 (univ. bin) a month or so ago at NI
(for my MacIntel, yes, buggy, but workable for now).
I am importing several slightly older Finale 2007 docs (from my Mac G5) which
had orchestral setups using full GPO and K1.
Things are fine as I (re)assign the GPO instruments in the K2 players, except I notice that the sound/timbre of the full GPO Timpani has changed.
The attack is much stronger (sounds like a harder mallet, even at very low velocities) and the timbre is brighter. I think the Timpani in full GPO with K1 was far more realistic, particularly for quieter dynamics.
Am I mistaken?
(I have bypassed the reverb(s) to confirm the difference).
Any comments/suggestions/observations on this?
Just a small issue, but a disappointment.
Thanks for any feedback.
