I've just ordered the Finale 2009 upgrade. I do classical music. The GPO sounds it comes with are all great and will suit me fine for some time to come, except for just one instrument.
I do a bit of writing for saxophones, in the classical style. Alto, tenor and baritone come with Finale 2009, but unfortunately for me soprano does not. I know I could get soprano sax if I pay for the Jazz & Big Band collection, but that's all I would be using in there. (Granted, one could always become inspired to expand, but I'm looking to keep focus right now, as well as keep costs down.)
The answer's probably no, but can anyone say if there's a way to purchase or find just one instrument? Any other suggestion?
Secondly, if there is no other route to take other than buying whole libraries, would I be able to write, say, a sax quartet SATB and have the ATB playback on the Garritan instruments and the S playback on some kind of Finale standard sound? What features (markings, etc.) would not work in that last scenario?
Thanks for the help
