Hi Gillespie,

I gave up on trying to tame GPO5 strings and use GPO4 string samples instead. I do use the other GPO5 instruments. When I complained to MakeMusic about the behaviour of GPO5 strings that was their "solution."

Rules are for people who have no understanding of music, so they invent something to mask their ignorance.

Thanks, Ron.  I no longer feel alone.  I love the GPO5 Marcato, col legno, and sul tasto samples.  But their initial legato attacks are a deal breaker.

Well back in 2000 I tired demos for both Finale and Sibelius.  Sibelius seem to fit better for the way I think and work, thus I went with Sibelius.  I have been happy with it as it meets my modest needs.
