Today I used the audio units setup to switch the sounds in my Finale score from EWQL Platinum to GPO notation. I will use the Platinum sounds when I do final rendering in Digital Performer -they are so much better/deeper, BUT the GPO sounds hang in there pretty well - thanks Gary!
I was already getting low memory warnings with Platinum - will I run into that issue easily with the GPO notation instruments?
From what I have surmised, I should be able to do rather full orchestrations with GPO. I am talking my full GPO, not the sounds included in Finale 2008.
You can see my system specs in my signature.
Thanks for any advice - the composing is going well - I am having a ball. Much of the symphony/soundtrack is based on melodies from my musical "Indiana, That's Where I Belong" - so it is fun reworking them and extending them orchestrally. It really is remarkable what we are able to do today by ourselves and with a decent computer and not spending unbelievable amounts of money.
