I had used Garritan in conjunction with Finale and the quality of the sounds was so enjoyable and helpful I decided to purchase the full personal orchestra, a midi controller, and upgraded to the latest version of Sonar (I work in a PC environment).
My Goal: to make CD-quality orchestrations/ensembles for accompaniment to sacred vocal music.
My Challenge: I am NOT a good book learner...I need someone to teach me HANDS ON!
My timeline: I would like IMMEDIATE help and am willing to PAY for it.
My Location: I live in the Raleigh area of North Carolina (Garner). Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be willing to teach me...thanks!
