1. What program would be the most efficient to compose for GPO harp in and also get a well-notated part? Sibelius, or Finale (or possibly cubase sx or logic!?)
2. Can i use harp-packets in sibelius or finale?
3. How do i get glissandi to play back according to the pedalling in sibelius?
4. How do i get glissandi to play back according to the pedalling in finale?
I can't for the life of me figure out what gary did in this post:
and the .mus file for the tchaikovsky just appears to have its glissandi totally notated when i import it into finale 2007....
Re: Harp Questions
What you're seeing in that file is that magic that Robert Pièchaud has put into Finale's human playback. He's programmed it to respond and play back notation elements the same way a human would.
I'm not sure if graphic harp pedalling diagrams affect playback. I let the harpists put in their own pedalling.
