Re: Lyrics: 'phrase-end dash' over double barline

Having thought about exactly what it is that a extension line conveys, I've come up with the following: An extension tells you not to 'close' the syllable (e.g. final consonants or vowel modification) on the current notehead, but keep going to the next notehead. Once you're on a notehead with no lin...

Re: Lyrics: 'phrase-end dash' over double barline

I abandoned word extensions long ago and have never had a complaint, even from tenors. As a tenor, I'd certainly complain. :lol: Word extensions explicitly convey the information that the next notehead is also to be sung to the same syllable. Maybe that is now to be expected -- what else are you li...

Finale 26 articulation chaos

Well, finally been bitten by articulation madness in v26. Working on an old document that I started in 25, and my articulations are all over the place. Of course, I only discovered this on the printout. It's a custom font character (yes, FAN), and all the upstem artics are off to the left. No amount...

Re: Catalina 26.2 MIDI Note Entry

There are two problems. The first is the physical issue of your Mac having USB ports but no MIDI ports, and your Kurzweil having MIDI ports but no USB ports. As a result, you need some hardware that connects your Mac to your keyboard. The second problem is whether that hardware needs additional soft...

Re: Minimal laptop requirements to avoid total frustration

Finale's requirements are still pretty light (given that it's essentially software designed years ago). MM's System Requirements page state a computer with 4Gb of RAM and Core 2 Duo CPU, which is average for a computer built more than 10 years ago. :lol: https://makemusic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articl...

Re: Finale 26.2 - Catalina and MIDI Keyboard Entry

Yes, it all works fine on Catalina and Mojave. The installer updates the engine and the player, so there should be no problems.

Partitura or Spartito are generally used for a score. Both can be used for a part, as can parte.

Partitura vocale; la parte della viola, etc, etc.
