Mixer

I find the mixer a very useful tool for playback and especially exporting just some parts of the score for remixing in another application. However, I am currently working on a score with 30 staves (full orchestra with chorus and soloists) and the mixer can only display 16 staves (instruments) at a time and the scroll is very slow because it redraws the mixer on every click and only moves left to right one instrument at a time.

Would it possible to improve this please? Possible ways might be:
  • Place the mixing desk for the complete orchestra maybe up to 48 channels) in a window so that even if only a sub-set of instruments is visible, the user can scroll smoothly left and right.
  • Keep the mixer like it is but offer an option to split it into more rows - say 3 rows x 16 channels = 48 channels
I know I could use studio view to get a smooth scroll but I like the mixer because I can move it to another display and keep the score window reasonably compact.

Thanks for a great piece of software - I have been using it since about 1990 and have kept pace with all the upgrades.

You need a DAW, not more features in Finale.

That's sort of the point of the request. Having finished my score I want to get into my DAW in order to remix it.
