I am using Finale 25 in macOS Mojave and this post involves questions re exporting Finale files as MIDI to use with VSTs in Logic X 10.4.5
I want to move beyond Garritan instruments and in to "post-producing" orchestral music that I have composed in Finale in Logic using a variety of other VSTs. The Garritan instruments do some nice stuff with keyswitching in situ, but other (larger, more expensive, of course) libraries have more potential for "realism". I am considering and will likely invest in the Babylon Waves "Art Conductor" package - https://www.babylonwaves.com/logic-pro/ - to lessen the pain of the keyswitching learning curve in Logic.
I am interested in more experienced users' protocols/process for moving from our venerable notation app in to a DAW environment. I am sure that I will make every dumb mistake that somebody new to this process can make, so any advice about how you do it and what you have learned will be most welcome. I am interested in both exporting scores that I plan to eventually print for users and scores that can be butt-ugly but might playback better if I do more articulation work, etc. in Finale before exporting MIDI.
I thank you all for all the wonderful answers I have browsed over the years! (It's been a while since I participated: I will try to come around and give some back when I can!)
