Re: Problems exporting audio files for use in a DAW

If you have to jack-up the Flute, make the accompaniment softer. Basic Instrumental Balance. If you can't hear it in Finale, you won't be able to hear it Live. Fixing it in the Mix isn't the way to go. Write it so that it works acoustically. Many Classical Composers have solved the Balance Problem, ...

Re: Finale Won't Playback

On Mac, I choose Sample Rate of 96, and exported wav files are 16/96.
I'm surprised that only 44.1 works on Windows.
I wish they made Finale 24/96, tho.
That's a big jump in quality.

Re: Problem with rest playback

Finale does some odd visual things while playing back.
The Score and Parts aren't affected.
It all goes back in place when playback is stopped, as you said.
Nothing to worry about.

Jamulous is an On-Line Music Service that fixes Latency.

Re: mp3 export

Midi is Soft Synth isn't it?
If you want an mp3 of Garritan Sounds, export to wav or aiff, open in iTunes, convert to mp3 there.
I don't know why only wav or Midi is available for you.

Re: Chord font

Are the Chord Symbols below the staff?
The slashes are unequal in spacing.
Try putting in quarter rests before making the slashes.
That will make them all look the same.
Small Chord Symbols can be hard to read on the Parts, especially if the player has to stand while soloing.

Check the Score Manager.

Re: Leans and scoops

The Arrow with the Twist makes a scoop for me, and you can bend it around to tailor the sound.
Maybe put it on the note before you want the scoop.

Re: key changes during playback

Even if all parts were in different keys, it wouldn't sound "out of tune" necessarily.
There's a weird thing Finale does, usually in response to having Glisses,
where it goes amazingly and bizarrely out-of-tune.
Restarting Finale fixes that, tho.
Do post some of your file for us to test!

Re: Buffer Size

Dudes! My Focusrite 2i2 3rd Gen works perfectly with Finale on my iMac. V25. Sample Rate 96, ( it's actually 16/96 ), Buffer 4096, selected in Audio Midi/Device Set-up. Maybe V26 is messed up, but I have 4 Dacs that all work fine with Finale 25, no playback problems. In fact, I'm very happy with pla...

Re: need to write out a swing equation

Don't include the Eighth note Rest in the Triplet,
unless you want a Choppy, Rik-a-tik sound.
Make it a Quarter Note followed by an Eighth Note.

OK, but I used Extracted Parts before Linked Parts were available.
Now when I use Linked Parts, I never use or check Extracted Parts,

Re: Adding a tie softens playback

Thanks for the Tip!
That has happened to me on occasion.
I would just add unwanted Dynamics to correct it, for playback only.
