I've been using GPO3, and latterly GPO4, with Finale 2009 and Sonar 8 for just over a year now. In that time I have not been able to solve the problems I am experiencing in producing a decent legato from the strings (both section and solo). Rather than a smooth transition from note to note I am often only able to achieve phrases full of detached and accented notes. Even more bizarre is the inconsistent nature of these problems. Some Finale scores will start out with a decent legato and then stop producing it part way through. Some sections will play with a legato in one editing session and then not in another. Some scores just will not yield any legato at all. I am having similar problems when using Sonar as the host.
In the case of Finale I am using the notation samples together with the appropriate expressions and smartshapes. In Sonar, I am using the standard samples, and have made sure that controller 68 is active. All to no avail.
If I can't solve this soon, I am going to have to ditch GPO in favour of an alternative product. I really don't want to have to do this as it will be expensive, and - this problem aside - I have been extremely happy with GPO.
Any and all suggestions gratefully received.
