No one? It is being highly touted by the Dorico crowd, and I am considering it.

Hello John,

I'm not a user, but Robert Puff kept me informed.
It seems that the Stream Deck hardware is now compatible with Finale, thanks to an initiative (Jetstream, in Beta) described here :
https://jetstreamfinale.com
Videos on Youtube : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVegzR ... vt4_b01K3g
Jeststream is free, I think (but you need the Stream Deck, of course, preferably the XL model).
Rather convincing.

Thanks, michelp. Very informative. I hadn't realized that Steam Deck was not immediately compatible with Finale. The Jetstream project is an exciting one. I will stay informed and may even stick my toe in the water.

I have been using 2 of them with Finale for a few months. Most commands work; some don't. I'm using it in conjunction with Sound Flow; the macros are designed in Sound Flow and triggered from the Stream Decks. It seems most useful for programming shortcuts to things like chord suffixes, basic menu items, etc. Sound Flow supports elaborate Javascript macros, but I'm not there yet. Stream Deck, at least, can reduced the amount of mousage.
