Share your music with the world
Capture musical inspiration. Engrave a beautiful score. Share your artistic vision with others. Just as every musician is unique, so are the reasons each uses music notation software.
Today’s Finale supports you, making it easy to create whatever you can imagine AND to work in the order and manner that best support your creativity.
No matter where your inspiration leads you, from a simple lead sheet or student worksheet, to orchestrating for Hollywood or preparing your Broadway score, choose the solution that supports your vision.
Focus on your art, not the details
When inspiration strikes, Finale takes care of the details so you can focus on your music. Capture ideas as fast as you can – with no obstacles to slow you down.
Your music, your way
In an instant you can move measures, change keys, or perform dozens of edits to capture, arrange, perfect, and print anything you can imagine. Finale even offers creative and editorial input, from automatically adding a drum groove to indicating when notes have been written out of an instrument’s range.
Enter notes your way
The choice is yours. Play in your notes with a MIDI keyboard, mouse, or computer keyboard. You can also import a wide variety of file types, including MIDI and MusicXML™.
Finale 25.5 Update Notes:
The primary focus of 25.5 is improved support of macOS High Sierra. There are several fixes related directly to the new operating system. We’ve also made improvements to the Garritan installer (which is the process used to get the premium instrument libraries properly positioned on your computer). These fixes not only make the installer compatible with High Sierra, they also improve the installation process on its predecessor, Sierra.
Okay, here’s the mystery: where is the darn “clear” key on the Mac keyboard above (as well as on other Macs and Mac laptops)? Don’t you need one to do things like clear the contents of a measure without deleting the measure itself?
While we weren’t able to add an extra key to your keyboard, 25.5 does make function-shift-delete work for this and other clear key functions. Check out this related post to learn more about how to use the clear or backspace function to increase your productivity (no matter what computer or keyboard you use).
Other Improvements Include:
The elimination of crashes when saving audio files on Windows or using ReWire with select DAWs,
Performance enhancements when exporting MusicXML,
Additional MusicXML improvements including support for duplicate measure numbers (as seen in pieces with multiple movements),
Improved Finalescript commands, and more.
