Hi dear friends,
Wouldn't be interesting to compare two notation programs and a live performance with the same little composition (called "Gratioso")?
Finale is great software to write down and edit notes, pages, layout for printing. Notion is in my opinion better for score performances and sound quality (with its own LSO library or with the supported Garritan libraries and some other well known libraries). I present 3 times the same piece. It's a chamber music composition from the late 18th century, author so far unknown. The arrangement was my work.
It was made in Finale and exported via xml to Notion afterwards. I didn't work out in a detailed way the score in either program. The live performance is interpreted and longer.
I leave the judgement entirely to you.
Gratioso (Finale) (only with GPO-notation + HP Classic)
Gratioso (Notion4) (only with GPO-notation + convolution small orchestra hall and 40% wet reverb)
Gratiose (Live) (flute, 2 violins, viola, double bass, in a small radio studio in Brussels)
Enjoy the listen.
