I'm using Finale V26. Is there a way to route the MIDI playback to a USB port so I can play it on different equipment?
Can you be more specific about the equipment and how you wish to play it?

part names save with x

OK, this is a very minor issue but annoying when creating and saving orchestral parts. Is there any way to stop Finale putting the x after the title when printing parts (apart from manually changing...which takes time with many parts)?

Thanks all!

running headers on individual parts

Is there a way to do this?

I'd like the part name for each part to show on every page, 2 - til end (the first page is already taken care of)

Thanks Buon. Yes, printer found some good paper but it's too cream and probably too thin for purpose.

best paper for printing in UK?

Have researched loads, found company 'purely paper' that professes to stock off-white paper, anti glare. Sounds good but prohibitively expensive and I think white would be better. Anyone here in UK have ideas where I can buy paper that would be suitable? Its for a self-published music book, so needi...

Re: showing different clefs in score and parts for C score

showing different clefs in score and parts for C score

Can't remember if there is a way to do this.

I want the score to show in C, but some of the horn passages would need to be in bass clef. The parts would be in treble clef

If I change the clef in the score it automatically changes it in the parts as well

Re: spitfire BBC core library with Finale?

Does Spitfire provide a host to house multiple instruments on one MIDI channel? VSL's player is also single channel, and they provide such a host at no extra cost.

Re: HELP instruments playing back an octave too high

In Bar 62 you had an Expression used for the Bass Cue playback set for playback an Octave higher (12 steps). However, you failed to cancel that Octave higher with a matching Expression to return transposition to 0 (zero). So, from then on, all instruments on those staves are still playing an octave...

Okay. Are the instruments playing an octave higher throughout the piece?

P.S.: If we could examine the file, that would expedite things.

Possibly some stray MIDI data got applied to those staves. You can look in the MIDI Tool and see if there might be some Pitch Wheel data, or something similar that got entered by mistake. Save the file with a different name, delete everything, then try reentering notes and see if they play back oka...
