Glad to be here. I am an aspiring composer of news theme music, and the program I currently use for composing is Finale Notepad, a program I downloaded for free because money is tight and because I have had trouble with other programs. I looked on Musician's Friend and I saw the pay version of Finale, but I don't know how it works. While the pre-existing horns and percussion are okay, I don't have a very good sounding string section because the samples are the solo instruments and not a full string orchestra. Does anyone know how the pay version of Finale works? Also, does anyone have any suggestions as to better sounding orchestral sample libraries that can simulate a full orchestra and let you point and click to write the music rather than play it on a keyboard?
