    Finale 2010 Announced

    I just received my yearly "invitation" from Make Music to upgrade to Finale 2010. It mentions new Garritan sounds:

    I guess I'll give them the annual $99 to get the upgrade...

    I don't know... extremely underwhelming, especially compared to Sibelius 6. I think this seals a crossgrade to Sib for me.

    Don't see much of a reason to upgrade from 2009... Maybe next year...

    The only thing I'd like to see is a new tool to add watermarks straight into Finale, since watermarks in PDF files can be very easily taken out... :-/

    I was contemplating a switch to Finale or upgrading to Sibelius 6, so this announcement of 2010's features is quite timely. I think I'll be sticking with Sibelius also.

    One area in Finale 2010 upon which they've made very
    substantial improvements is VST instrument and effects
    management. I'm very pleased to see this, and they've
    done a fine job on it. If that's an area that's important
    to you, you might want to look into it further.

    I should mention I'm one of the Finale 2010 beta testers,
    of course -- but overall, this is looking like a strong new
    release, to me. As always, many of the improvements are
    incremental more than revolutionary, though.

    Best,

    Until you mentioned that I was planning on passing on the upgrade. I think I'll have to consider it now.

    So the new Garritan sounds include handbells in five octaves and overdriven/distorted electric guitars. I don't recognize those! Does it mean something big is in store for JABB Aria?
