    I'm considering trading in my Sibelius 4 for Finale 2008. Yet, first, I want to try a demo of Finale 2008 before I switch.

    I don't mean to ask a redundant question, but where is the MB/CB library and the installer for human playback in 2007?

    I have only used the Sibelius demo. I did not like the sound of their insturments samples. Things that are common software command found in Microsoft Office suite function in Finale and I've learned to do things because I knew how to do them from using other software like Microsoft Word. The sound quality of Finales "Softsynth" sounds is excellent. This is really a very good engraver quality notation software. It is really easy to learn.

    Samantha,

    Not to make you change your mind, but the Sounds in the Sibelius Demo aren't the sounds you would get if you purchased Sib 5. the sounds come with the purchase, but would make the Demo enormous in size; what you are hearing is your GM sounds that come with any PC. I realize you are a Finale user, and that '08 is in your future; I just wanted to make certain that you knew that what you heard in the Sib Demo wasn't the real Sib product.

    any idea what they used to create the demos on the Sibelius website?
    I listened to some audio demos using Sibelius on their website, and was NOT impressed.

    Thumbs up Re: Finale 2008 now shipping

    I've been a Sibelius user for just over 2 years now and I've decided to move to Finale. There are several reasons including what is being examined here - Finale's Human Playback just cannot be beat. I see it as not only improving my the quality of my music, I see it doing so and requiring half of the time I now spend tweaking.

    Sibelius is a great product and if I am sure the sounds that will be offered from Garritan will be exactly the same between the two products. I don't have the scoring needs others have, I just want to be able to see a decent score and have the music play back really well. Human Playback will allow this.

    A $200 crossgrade is not cheap, but I think it is going to be worth it.

    Hello Samantha,

    I expect MM are sorting their 'home' orders first. I expect international orders will be sent later so I expect I shall have to wait a while longer.

    Kevin,

    It does look like the instruments are the same set as in Sib 5 from what I can see. I'm sure someone will chip in and correct us if this isn't the case.

    Bill,

    I've probably misunderstood your question but Finale 2007 has no Marching Band and Choir voices. It has instruments from GPO and JABB. Also, Human Playback is installed when you install Finale 2007. I'm not aware that HP can be installed separately but I could be wrong; I've never tried to install HP separately.
