How to create Dynamic change between 1st/2nd endings

Postby willB1919 » Fri Jun 16, 2017 1:14 pm

I am currently working on a march. Traditionally in a march the first time a through a passage it is played mp and the second time through it is played f.

How do I mark it so that Finale plays it back correctly?


Thanks

Layout and playback are two different beasts.

Layout:
Usually the notation at the beginning of the repeat is
mp - f

Playback:
Use expressions with playback effect only on Pass 1, and only on Pass 2.
I can not be more specific since I do not know, what playback device you are using.

Take a look in the MIDI/Audio menu

Is the menu item {Play Finale Through MIDI} selected?

Peter Thomsen thanks for the reply

A couple of questions

I know how to create dynamics, but where do I find/create the "hyphen" in Finale ?

Forgive me, but I didn't understand the "pass 1" "pass 2 " stuff at all (I am using standard garritan/aria sounds)

Create a duplicate of the expression, edit it, and via the Playback thumbnail, define a volume using Key Velocity or Controller -> Volume.
Then Apply to the appropriate pass.

I am afraid I do not understand your question.

Finale is a computer program.

A hyphen is a font character.

But take a look at the attached Finale document.
Does my Finale document answer your question?
