Export wav issue

Post by tappingtrance » Thu Apr 09, 2020 1:58 pm

I am on V26, Windows and trying to export to wav which I load in to Sonar. I took my score and created a wav file - fine. Then I extracted all parts and took their individual wav files and loaded them into Sonar. The Violin 1 part came up short in that it is getting to its parts early. It starts lined up with the other strings buty very quickly is progressing faster than all the other strings so it ends sooner and obviously sounds wrong. Tried everything saving, re-extracting etc. nothing fixed it which is really disappointing as my intent is to work with each wav file independently - needless to say I lost half a day on this business. Any thoughts?

PS the Finale file plays fine on finale and all HP seems to get into the wav file i.e crescendos, rallentando , fermatas. Just this one instrument file.

that's because HumanPlayback varies the performance slightly.
So when you export a WAV of each part you're actually exporting distinct audio files at subtly different tempos.

Use the "apply HP" plugin, then turn OFF HumanPlayback before exporting your audio files.
That way, Finale will "perform" all the parts based upon the once-through "apply HP", every part having identical tempos, etc...

"Apply HP" will basically insert all of the HumanPlayback information you require, in one go, to all the parts.
You can then play it back without having Finale re-interpret all of the HP data.

Before exporting your audio files, use the "apply HP" plugin, then turn off HumanPlayback. It can also be a problem from the format of the files you upload. You should check each file separately, open it and see if it is OK. It has happened to me many times to encounter this problem and to have to convert the files. I use an online converter convertr.org that meets all my requirements: not to damage the quality of the file and not to have a large size.

Re: Export wav issue/ Where is Apply HP PlugIN"?

Post by danielschellmus » Fri Nov 26, 2021 11:04 am

FINALE 27.1 Windows 10
I also had issue with exporting audio track one by one. They all went out with different lengths and tempi, mainly because of the Fermata. So my Studio session , mixing Finale Tracks and musicians, went terrible...
This Hiuman Playback issue is absolutely not wanted in the regular opening. It should be option only, and I don't find a simple way to get rid of it.
In the Menu "Plug-Ins" there is not anymore "Playback". So you cannot turn off HP there.
If you go in the Human Playback "Preferences - Human Playback dialog box" through the Windows/Playback COntrol Menu , there are a so many choices that you cannot decide which one to use to stop the HP, There is just no button to cancel Human Playback....
So I don't see how to do...
Help needed
Thank you

Re: Export wav issue/ Switching HP out

Hi
I think I found something:
FINALE 27.1
(THe PLayback option is not anymore in the Plug-Ins)
WINDOW
Check Playback Controls to see the Menu bar
Check the settings The wheel button on the right
HUMAN PLAYBACK STYLE : menu: Select NONE
I exported AUDIO TRACKS one by one again
Let's see if it works now in the studio....
Actually that raises another problem: How to control Fermata and let the musicians hear by the click track?? I shall post it in another section.
Thanks for the help
Daniel S
