    Garritan CMB, Kontakt 4.1 and Finale 2010

    I think I'm in the right area of the forums to ask this.

    When Kontakt upgraded to 4.1, the cool thing was: 64 bit operation...yeah!
    The uncool thing is, I can't edit it as a plug-in in Finale 2010 any more. Make Music is aware of the situation and is working on it.

    In the meantime, I have to keep working and I need to be able to edit my Kontakt 4 multis on the fly, so I've tried something that I've not done before:
    I'm running Finale outputs through midi using the IAC busses. (I'm on a Mac, by the way, I think the current details are in my signature below.)

    Now I think I'm going to like this better, ultimately. Here's the one tricky issue that I'd like help on:

    What is the best setting for Human Playback (Standard) when I'm using my Concert and Marching Band instruments in K4 standalone? Should I use the non-notation versions of the instruments? If so, how should I direct Finale's Human Playback to address them?

    Thanks for any help you can give...

    I can't think of the implications of using the plugin "outside" the application, but I think you'll still need to use the notation set of instruments if for no other reason than where the keyswitches are located. The fact that the keyswitches are in a unified location across all the samples for notation software purposes tells me you'll need to use those. Plus I think sustain is a different controller by default as well.

    Those are the two things I can think of off the top of my head.
