I thought it would be fun to generate a discussion of the difference or similarity of the two engines in Finale '09 that can realize a piece of music using the Garritan samples. Here are two versions of a piece I wrote for my wife right after I met her 6 years ago (boy, it's hard to believe 6 years have gone by but anyway...)
One was realized through Finale '09 using the Kontakt Player 2 and one was realized with the Aria engine available inFinale '09. The only difference is the solo instrument - one is a flugal and one is a trumpet.
Listen and see if you can detect difference or similarities. Reverb was created with convolution in the KP2 version and with the Ambience reverb in the Aria engine.

Have fun and enjoy.
