Anyone using NotePerformer add-on for Sibelius?

Been seeing ads for this in my FB feed quite a lot recently and decided to investigate. Sound demo comparisons on its website sound quite impressive (though not VSL level) and it's pretty cheap at $129. Any Sib users here using it?

Possibly the world's dumbest query for this one hour moment in history:

I have Sib 7- Doesn't it come with a load of sounds? Why $129 for more.. what is Mr Tee missing ? I warned you !

Huge difference... Beethoven's 9th - I've never heard Sibelius sound so great, really amazing editing...I have to wonder if they really used the exact same scores with the exact same dynamic markings and tempo changes... they don't appear to state that they did or that they didn't... seems like somebody did a whole lot of fine tuning editing...

Yeah, Jazz, that kind of concerns me too. The fact that it doesn't specifically say is slightly worrying. But then again it's not a huge amount of money to take a risk on.

 

Tee, go back to the page and scroll down to the bottom. Both comparison clips and entire Soundcloud uploads. Heaven forfend that I should waste your time, obviously...

Noteperformer has received quite good feedback on the Sibelius forum http://www.sibelius.com/cgi-bin/helpcenter/chat/chat.pl?groupid=3

 

note that sibelius 7.5 promises some of the same features in playback as Noteperformer, though I would personally prefer to pay 129 to NP than 50 to Avid, but I am definitely in the anti-Avid camp.

I guess a new career as air traffic controller, is pretty much out for me! How did I miss it? As one more side note: I have not listened to this particularly superb music from the Masters of previous centuries in a long while- mistake. The musicality that comes from these exceedingly rare, and gifted people is truly awe inspiring.

 

I am guessing it's the smart move, to acquire NotePerformer . Thank you for hipping us to it.

For advanced users who need to make high quality audio demos. It doesn't really benefit chart makers.

The tempo changes and dynamics I am hearing are very detailed and realistic... A whole lot of editing went into it ... I doubt basic notation entry would produce those sort of results.
