Waiting for VDL 2.5 -- My Quest

Posted: Thu Nov 05, 2009 7:30 pm



So, I've been wanting to get back into composing battery scores again -- I truly do miss it. Being a little *cough* much older, my toys get bigger. So, here's my little thread about the trials and tribulations of getting things purchased and setup so I can efficiently run Finale 2009 with VDL 2.5.

Step 1: USB Midi Controller and Keyboard are in. VDL 2.5 was on backorder from two different locations, but I finally found a place called Software Express who had two copies left in their Mid-West warehouse, but I'm on the East coast, so it'll take a few days to get here. The good news is that, since my real-life job consists of teaching at a college, I get the academic price. Huzzah.

Here's the midi hardware all set to go:

Oh, wound up getting VDL the VERY NEXT DAY even though it was halfway across the country -- I was pretty shocked to see it arrive so soon.

I thought I'd pass this along as well, my director for the Eagles Drumline has started a blog to get Finale and VDL to play nicely: http://finalevirtualdrumline.blogspot.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
