Hi,

I've been a Finale PrintMusic user for some time, but I've come to understand that there are purchases/downloads available that offer a better audio representation of various instruments than the library that comes with PrintMusic by default. Are most people using Garriton sounds? How do these integrate with Finale? Do you find them to be superior representations of the instruments already available by default in Finale?

Thank you for any help!
Pete
