Re: VST Effects - only with DAW?

No, no need for a DAW.

Did the VST you downloaded have both 32 and 64bit versions? If so, make sure you're pointing to the right one.

Re: Spitfire BBC Symphony Orchestra

They provide their own player, and it will work with Finale like any other VSTi. No, Aria won't play it.

Re: ARIA engine update (un)available

Keep in mind that the Engine is not backwards compatible so if you save a Finale file with instruments using this engine, the computer that the file is being opened on ...

Re: E-MU audio interface and Windows 10

I think it's unlikely that a feature update would affect a driver that's been working. You can always try it, and roll back Windows if there's an issue.

BTW, ASIO4ALL is not a Steinberg product, and is a choice of last resort. A Card's native ASIO is always to be preferred.

>> It looks like the staves are produced by a rubber stamp. Interesting.

It's a 5 lines ruling pen. You can see it in the middle picture on the right.

Re: Halion from Cubase and Kontakt library in Finale V26

OK, let's go step by step. I don't have Halion installed, so we'll look at Kontakt.

Open Native Access
Click on the Installed Products tab on the left
Find and click on Kontakt
Click on Installation Path in the detail pane on the right
Write down the VST64 Location

Re: Halion from Cubase and Kontakt library in Finale V26

First you need to let Finale know where the plugins located. Go to MIDI/Audio, Device setup, Manage VST Plugin Directories and add the locations. Where are the locations you might ask? That's the rub. You would have seen the default locations during setup. I create my own VST folders, so can't help ...

Re: EWQLSO Issue strikes again

I's difficult to help with the information you've given. Try to go step by step to where the "crash" happens. Also, what do you mean by crash?

How much RAM? What version of Play?

Rest assured that it does work once everything is setup properly.

Fin25 is 64bit, so your plugin would need to be also.

Re: Code 7

Have you run a ReWire enabled application in the mean time? That will generate the Error code 7, and you need to go to Audio/MIDI - Device setup and reset ReWire.

Re: MIDI playback not working

That's true of the wider world of VSTi instruments. But the SmartMusic SoftSynth you play through MIDI is the same as the SmartMusic SoftSynth you play through VST; both synthisized instrument sounds. Garritan is sampled sounds, though RAM usage there is also minuscule.

Re: MIDI playback not working

I don't think there's any functional difference between the MIDI SoftSynth and the VST SoftSynth , so if that works I'd just go with it.
