I have used Finale now since 1999. Sometimes I love her, and sometimes I want to toss her out the window, but I've learned over the years that I can get a decent enough recording for my live performers if I work diligently enough on the sound project. I have always created two different files within each work: the final score and the way it sounds. Trust me though, the sound files are not readable except for me and the readable scores are easily ready to be sent off to a publisher with confidence. I know that I am missing a lot by not using a DAW as of right now, but I am still willing to push the boundaries of my notation software as long as live performers are performing my works or as long as I trust my music to live performers. So with that, will anyone else care to share a sound file rendered only with their notation software? Here is my submission. Many of you have heard this before. It is called "Wrath of Fire" and is scored for orchestra featuring the contrabassoon. The rendering is from Finale and only uses Garritan.
