 Evrey now and then, like most old guys, I fell victim to the "Walldorf&Stedtler" syndrom and rant. But - hey! -  we are old guys and we are entitled to rant. 

And every other now and then, you have to admit, that you where not exactly right - you guys at VSL are just catering well to your community.

I am always amazed, diving into my VSL SE , about the sound and the power you can unleash when you spend the time and effort to work with VSL and VE. Track for track, bringing a VSL SE orchestra to sound, is always amazing. Not to diminish the other libraries (I have Garritan as well and they can serve well), but VSL adds a twist of well engineered magic to it.

This easter weekend, I spent the time doing something interesting (leaving the eggs to the kids and the bad weather to the outside) and worked in my Studio. As a passionate user of Geniesoft "Overture" , I was always kind of sad, that Don did not continue developing his software.

Recently, there was some new activity at Geniesoft, and a series of patches was released. I took the chance and worked the weekend with VSL and the new patch within Overture 4.1. By no means I am Pro or good at notation. Maybe it will be not your product for score submitting to Hollywood. Overture was just my size and I have to say, it is again. I could make articulation and keyswitch to work with VE (running VE outside of Overture) and it works like a charm with some tweaking. 

I can just say, for everybody who has a copy around somewhere and is on a budget or just not into learning a new trick: Take the dust off. install the new patch and give it a spin. When I have some more time, I can eventually share my mapping.

Cheers to everybody

 I am halfway through mapping - works great. If someone is interested in WIP and wants to adapt it himself, just pm me.

Hello,
i have ben trying to get Overture to work with VLS for months, and had no luck making it work. I just found our post that tells me that you are able to use the Overture and VSL together and would love to get some help in possibly making it work on my set -up.
Are you a PC or a MAC user?
I am using Overture 4 and MAX os 10.4.11
I have been using Overture for 15 years, and would like to continue using it, but am now thinking to switching to Sibelius (which is not without problems with VSL either), so any help is appreciated.
Thanks.
Philip
