I have finally stepped up and purchased several things. 1. Finale 2012. 2. Concert and Marching Band. 3. Jazz and Big Band.
I am planning on using them in a couple of ways.
1. at home with my arrangements on a PC in Finale
2. at work (school) in ProTools attempting to put together live backing tracks for vocal jazz arrangements, marching band demos, jazz band demos, symphonic band demos... and if I get good at it my PhD audition.
So. . . My first question is... Once I am in Finale2012 I can set all of the parts to use the Aria player. I click the "edit" button and Aria pops up. I load the appropriate ensemble. . . Then what?
I will ask more questions when I get this one down.
