Boasts 100+ new premium sounds
Already a superstar in the playback department, Finale now adds more than 100 new premium sounds to its built-in Garritan library, including the world-class Concert D grand piano from Garritan's acclaimed Personal Orchestra 5.
New ARIA Player
Finale's new ARIA Player lets you quickly and easily add instruments from the Garritan library and create a realistic soundstage with judicious applications of Finale's superb onboard convolution reverb.
Transposed note entry
When you're inputting music into transposed staves, Finale's transposed note entry feature plays the transposed pitch upon entry - as well as during playback.
Finale's new ReWire support lets you sync it with your DAW of choice. This is huge. Press play in, say Digital Performer, and have both DP and finale play back in perfect sync.
Improved Human Playback
Finale's improved Human Playback makes your compositions sound like humans are performing them - and this cool feature now responds instantly, the moment you press play.
Tall time signatures
If the conductor misses a time signature change, it would be bad - which is why tall time signatures are standard for studio scores. Finale has always been able to display them, but they were a bit tricky to set up. Now they're easy.
Contoured dashed slurs
Finale has always offered dashed curves, but due to popular demand, MakeMusic has added an additional contoured dash slur - and it looks fantastic.
Expanded MusicXML import and export
No more musical details lost in translation. Finale's expanded MusicXML import and export improves accuracy when you share your music with collaborators who use other software.
