Two Brand New Songs and Buying Finale

Posted by MusicMyOxygen - June 6th, 2009

Hello everyone, or at least the few fans who may be reading this. And to all of you, thank you for listening to my music.

Just yesterday I submitted to the audio portal two songs, both of which I worked very hard on and am proud of. These two are:

Farewell and Into the Unknown.

I truly hope everyone who listens to them enjoys them. And if you have a chance, please leave a review. I really appreciate getting feedback.

Now, I have been in search of a music program, and as of right now my mind is set on Finale. Both of my recently submitted songs were made on Finale, and i have become familiar with the program through a Music Tech./Theory class I am in. Sadly, that class is ending as school will soon be over, and when it does I will not have acess to the music lab there. So, as soon as I aquire enough money i will be buying Finale. If you have any other suggestions on a different music program I should purchase, please tell me before I go spending my money.

Also, an offer I made in my previous news post to create anyone who like me to a song for their movie or game is still good, so go to my previous news post for details if you are interested. Which is here.

Finale is ok to get used to notation programs, and use it only for that. But if you really want something that is not only for notation, get Sibelius 6.
You can load videos so you can sync your music on movies; you can rewire it to any DAW or sequencer so you no longer need to export midis to use FL, etc.

You could also ask this guy about it, since his copy just arrived:

Thank you for your input. And just in time too, I haven't purchased Finale yet!

From what I see it does, but I could use some clarification: this Sibelius program allows use of notation to compose, similar to that of Finale? Because I currently have acces to Sibelius Compass, which uses only piano roll and hinders my composing.

And what do you think of Finale's Garriton sound? Is the sound produced by Sibelius superior in your opinion?

I will pm these questions as well in case you do not check here. Thank you for your help.
