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

Re: ARIA engine update (un)available

Thanks, BuonTempi. Did you install the updated engine? Does everything still work OK?

I downloaded the package, but until I upgrade to Catalina and Finale 26, I'm very leery about installing it.

Re: Hold off on Catalina?

You could downgrade from Catalina to Mojave. I did that on my MacBook Air, but not because of Finale (it was another issue). After the downgrade, I re-installed Finale 25.5, GPO5, and COMB2. All that took forever, but Finale is working again.

Re: Hold off on Catalina?

I'm aware of the hold-off-on-updating caveat. Still, can anyone confirm that Finale and Garritan sound libraries (and the Aria player) work in Catalina?

Re: ARIA engine update (un)available

Why can't I download the update? I was allowed to install the latest player update, which is set to work in 64-bits mode, so what's the problem?
Jay, have you created a ticket with MM with these questions? I have the same problem.

Re: When one in four isn't good enough

I can confirm that on a Mac hairpins do not seems able to be drawn over system breaks in page view. Also my experience. I work most comfortably in page view, so when I see hairpins that don't draw over a system break, I enter scroll view, move the hairpins around a bit, and realign them. That works...

Re: Can anyone explain this? Phantom Apple logo

Help with multiple movements in the same file

I want to combine three string orchestra works into a single three-movement piece. I've seen instructions on how to do this in the old Finale forum (Motet from July 1, 2010) and, more recently, from Peter Thomsen on how to title a multi-movement work in one file. What's the best way to bring in the ...

Re: Stay open or shut it down?

I also shut down every night and when I leave the house. FWIW. My understanding is that running a Mac every now and then in safe mode is beneficial because safe mode on a Mac clears various caches that aren't ordinarily cleared. I don't know which caches safe mode clears. But when I run my iMac in s...

Re: Looking for in-person help

How many parts, or groups of parts, are in your fiddle tunes? If you could post a problem piece, I bet the experts here (of which I am not one) could find a solution. Have you tried setting up each part in its own Aria instance? You can adjust the overall volume of each part better this way. You cou...

Re: Percussion Sustain Notation

I do this one of two ways in my scores and parts. First, for suspended cymbal and crash cymbals, as part of the instrument names in the score and parts, I just call them "Crash Cymbals (let ring)," and "Suspended Cymbal (let ring)." These indications assume that the "let ring" applies to all places ...

Re: folder for TGTools file?

In Mac OS X, the default location for plug-ins is here: [Volume name] > Library > Application Support > MakeMusic > Finale > Plug-ins.

You can find Finale file locations by clicking Finale (upper left) > Preferences > Folders.

Re: GPO5 and v25 help

2. For strings, I notice a gap between notes when they're not slurred together, that is, there's not a smooth transition between notes. I tried increasing the "release" in the Aria player, but then when I want to do shorter or staccato notes the increased release negates the shortness. How do I get...

I went into Document Options > Multimeasure Rests and changed the shape. That solved the problem. Thanks, N and Zuill.

Dynamic ignored in repeated section on repeat

On the repeat, Finale ignores the initial piano level and plays it at forte. Finale does play back the other dynamics in the rep...

Re: Import WAV file into GPO5 and the Aria player in Mac

EUREKA ! I solved the problem. The pitch of the sound plays back higher or lower, as do other pitched notes on the staff. I had placed this sound on the middle line of a staff with a G clef. I moved the "note" to the first-line E, and it sounded normal. Later I'll get around to changing to the perc...
