If anyone is interested in the following, I can attempt to create a kind of workshop for using Finale and GPO4 for playback.
When I say workshop, I kind of mean just allowing access to one of my score files, perhaps with notes on how I adjusted it for playback and set it up - and of course the accompanying MP3 so you can hear the results.
Maybe we can turn the thread into a useful resource for Finale users.
I work with a DAW now, but Finale and GPO4 really got me started - and it's perfectly fine to remain in Finale - and if that is your goal then I think I can offer useful information to some of you.
Here's the MP3 to which I am thinking of sharing the score file to
Let me know your thoughts - ideally I'd feel its worthwhile if there is a few people interested.
Note - my version of Finale is 2011 - so you may need this version and later.
