Re: playback doesn't work after changes to audio settings

Just by chance, I've managed to solve this problem. It turns out that my microphone was switched off in Windows privacy settings!! Maybe this solution will be of use to other users, seeing as the same issue is apparently experienced by a number of people.

playback doesn't work after changes to audio settings

I have a brand new laptop, and used Finale (14.5) on it for the first time yesterday. Everything was going okay, except for the volume which was very low. I started experimenting with the various audio settings and, lo and behold, Finale no longer starts playback; the green cursor remains above the ...

Hello RO_GTR, just wondering if you have solved your problem, since I am having the same issue; I thought I would ask you if you had made progress before starting a new thread.

unable to hide measure numbers

I'm editing a piece of music for a single melody instrument. I've inserted rehearsal numbers, but cannot remove or hide measure numbers. I've tried just about everything, from editing measure number regions to changing staff attributes, but nothing seems to solve the problem, and the measure numbers...

Default dynamic

Does anyone know what the default dynamic is for playback if no dynamic symbol is actually present? Is it f, mf, mp, mf ? And what key velocity does that correspond to?

Thanks for your reply, Michel. Do you happen to know if any such libraries are readily available?

possibility of playing notes outside standard range?

Is it possibile to get Finale (Aria Player) to play notes outside the standard range of an instrument? In my case I'm referring to the bass extension of the harpsichord. Many French 18th century harpsichords had a bass range descending as low as G1 with Finale any notes below C will not play. Is the...

Re: bar numbers missing

I thought I had solved the problem, but now the bar numbers are showing for every bar, and I cannot seem to remove them (I only want them at the beginning of each system).

bar numbers missing

I've just noticed that the first movement of a three-movement work (prepared as single file with Finale) lacks bar numbers, whereas the numbers are present in the second and third movements. Does anyone know what the cause could be, and how to fix it?

Garritan Ambience

I'm trying out Finale 25, and have noticed that Garritan Ambience is missing, or at least no longer included with the Aria player. Can this be fixed by downloading the Garritan Ambience driver, which I've seen is available online?

Re: anacrusis not playing on repeat

I now seem to have solved the problem, miker, or at least to have got around it. I copied and pasted the first section rather than using the repeat sign, and I also updated the layout.

Thanks for your interest. :)

anacrusis not playing on repeat

I have a piece in binary form, 6/8 metre, with a quaver upbeat. Upon playback, the opening is fine until the first section is repeated, when the quaver upbeat is for some reason just not heard.No problems with the second section which also has a quaver upbeat; this plays without problems also when r...

Re: substituting ornament symbols...

Thank you everyone for your replies. Let's see if I've understood what I should do: My best bet is to substitute the plus sign that is currently in my score with the standard trill symbol, then hide the trill symbol, and finally reinsert the plus sign (even using a metatool), but setting HP to stand...

Re: substituting ornament symbols...

Well, it could be no. 43 (U+F02B) or otherwise no. 246 (U+F0F6). They look the same, and it is not clear which one appears in the Articulation Selection pane.

Re: substituting ornament symbols...

As far as I can see, the plus sign is Maestro font, Shift + =. I can't see any ASCII code number. On my PC, In the standard Articulation Selection pane it is no. 23.

Re: substituting ornament symbols...

Thanks motet. The trill still plays even when hidden, but the plus sign plays a type of mordent in HP, and this evidently overrides the trill symbol if the latter is hidden. I could probably insert the plus sign as text, but this would become more time consuming. I'm wondering if there is not a way ...

Re: substituting ornament symbols...

I'll give that a try, thank you. The problem is that the plus sign actually produces a sort of weak mordent when I use 'Human Playback', even if the 'playback effect' in the 'Articulation Designer' pane is set to 'none'.
