Online activation is irritating: Only on two computers to Sibelius.
Windows XP, Celeron 1.8GHz, 2GB RAM, sound card external USB.
The VSTi bgaient for large groups.
I try both since Finale 2000 and Sibelius 1.1 for Exceeds limits MusicTime (Windows 3.1) and Win95 again (disquettes!) I bought Finale 2003 and Sibelius 4 (Win 98se).
I made partitions choral keyboard with 2 Software: trs rsultats are similar.
* In final, I have to consult the manual labyrinthine 5 or 6 times a page, in Sibelius 5 or 6 times a month!
* To add a say, Final, 7 plays,, Sibelius, two clicks.
* To add and edit text: Finale gives a migraine, the Sibelius enlve!
* Ditto for the layout.
* When j'fface a note, Sibelius put a silent place; Finale DCAL following notes left in my dmolissant ligatures etc..
I find Sibelius 3 times faster for the same result.
And I'd like to know what Finale is "more powerful"?
Since I took the upgrade to Sibelius 6 (WinXP) (130) and the Magnetic Layout j'apprcie, the Panoramic (Final thank you!), Use VST etc..
The trs 2 are expensive but j'eu for Sibelius 4 a price of 230 (instead of 600) showing (and keeping!) My final CD.
