Re: Finale Version 2

This will probably make me look like a heretic, but in 2012 when I was moving from Illinois, I decided that the Coda disks and manuals were not going to make the trip with me, so they got tossed in the bonfire.

Re: How do I display measure numbers in every measure?

You might want to uncheck "hide first measure number in region".

Re: Volume control

Jim,

I think it might be helpful to you to watch some of the quickstart videos. You can start with "Add expressive text and markings to my document". This will show you how to add these markings to you score.

You could leave all measures empty, creating the multi-rests, then use the text tool to add chord symbols.

Re: Using Audacity with Finale by importing .wav files

I'll answer part of your question. I don't have Audcity, so I can't make any specific comments about that. But I do use a DAW, Logic, Mac only. You can export a midi file from Finale and open that in a DAW. In fact, with Logic, I can import a music xml file from Finale. It works great. I use a DAW f...

Re: Numbers not start at beginning of piece

It's a common notation practice to hide the first measure number in a piece. You can override that by going into the measure number region and unchecking "hide first measure number in region".

Re: Piano part way too wide between LH /RH

Are all of the lower staves the same distance from the top staff? Or are they different distances? If they are the same, with the staff tool, click outside of the lower staff in in the left margin of system one. This should highlight the entire lower staff. Now drag the handle in system one to the c...

Re: Moving location of "technique text" function

Here's how to use metatools. In Finale's default document you go to the expression tool, technique text. You look at the "Pizz." entry. you'll see that there is a "P" in the upper right hand corner. In "Arco", there's an "O" in the right hand corner. The P and O are the metatools. To use them, switc...

Re: Moving location of "technique text" function

BJ

Do you use metatools to apply the common expressions? Arco and Pizz have metatools already programmed into them. Using metatools is way faster than even opening the dialog box and selecting one of these techniques.

Re: Tiling??

One solution would be to print your score at 11 x 17 to a PDF file. Bring that file to Staples, Office Depot, whatever, let them print a 11 x 17 paper copy for you. Another option, if you can print to legal size, print a legal size score, then enlarge it at a photo copier to 11 x 17. And your other ...

Re: Is it possible to combine two separate Instrument Techniques?

From my experience, you need to create a custom set of HP preferences which would contain the Garritan sounds you use as well as other samples like VSL. I wish there was an automatic way of doing this, but I think the easiest route would be to duplicate your Garritan preferences, give it a different...

If you drag the 3rd arrow, then only the lyric in that system will move. Other systems will remain as is.

Re: Too many notes

It's correct, there's not too many notes. But the 11 note tuplet is a little deceiving because the "11" is kind of floating in space. I would move the 11 just beneath the beam.

I would suggest that you try NotePerformer. IMO, the playback is a step up from Garritan and it works in Finale. They have already customized Human Playback so it just works. With Cinestrings, in Finale you cannot simply switch to Cinestrings and expect playback to work, it won't. Each library uses ...
