Buy Finale 2012 Fix

This review of Finale 2012 assumes that if you are already using Finale or Sibelius you will probably be staying with those products. Instead this review will focus on the new user who has not yet made up their mind on which music notation software program to go with. Since the entry costs of Finale 2012 for a new purchase are so high, it makes sense to know if the program makes sense for your particular situation. Read on to find out whether Finale 2012 is the right choice for you.

Entering notes into Finale 2012 is easy and can be done in many different ways, with or without a MIDI keyboard, and it also offers the ability to add notes based on your own audio performance. Hook up a mic, pick up your instrument, and play your notes right into the selected staff. Changing staves and switching parts to different instruments has been greatly improved using Finale's ScoreManager, which takes care of instrument transpositions, key signatures, and staff types for you.

Finale 2012 is as full featured a music notation system as you can find. Pretty much every option you could need is available. Complex time signatures, customized articulations and dynamic markings, custom music symbols, unlimited number of staves, custom staff styles, custom noteheads, and dozens more make it the perfect choice for composers who need (or might one day need) to use notation techniques other than the basics. Keep in mind though that advanced notation techniques also require a bit of a learning curve to get the hang of using in a score. One significant downside to FInale is that it is so packed with features that beginners can often get lost in it's many menus and spend lots of time digging through help files trying to figure out how to do something simple like turning off measure numbers. Finale 2012 has improved a lot in this regard over its previous versions, and Finale's list of features continues to grow, making it a very complex program and fitting all of those features and options into the interface in an intuitive way has been an ongoing process for the company.

One of the biggest selling points for Finale 2012 for some musicians and music educators is its integration with the SmartMusic practice program. Music created in Finale 2012 can be loaded into SmartMusic to allow a musician to practice along with an accompaniment track. See our reviews of SmartMusic for more information on that product. SmartMusic files cannot be created in any of the other Finale product lines, nor in any competing music notation programs so if being able to use your compositions in SmartMusic is a factor Finale 2012 is your only real choice.

The general MIDI sounds that come with most music notation programs are less than realistic in most cases. Finale 2012 provides a full set of Garritan sound fonts that are sampled from real instruments and give your music a much more rich and realistic sound. Your compositions can be exported as MP3 or WAV files using these high quality sounds. If realism is important in your playback files Finale 2012 is the way to go. Other versions of Finale like Printmusic and Songwriter do not include the Garritan sounds.

The decision to spend over $400 on a new installation of Finale 2012 is not a light one. The program is expensive but it is well worth it if you need the power and flexability that it provides. Remember than educational discounts can bring the price down significantly if you are a student or school faculty member. If the budget allows, almost anyone can benefit from this full version of Finale 2012, but those that want to go with the Finale product line while investing less money may want to consider Finale SongWriter, PrintMusic, or even their free Notepad 2012 to get started. All of the Finale products are upward compatible so any files created in the other versions can be opened and edited in Finale 2012 should you choose to upgrade in the future.

Finale has long been the industry standard music notation program. Now you can purchase the original Finale files to many of our PraiseCharts arrangements. This special add-on product empowers anyone who is familiar with Finale to be able to make some personal customizations to our arrangements, without having to spend the time re-entering all the parts from scratch. To see a complete list of songs in our catalog that have Finale files available, go to the Song List page and click on the Finale files checkbox under Search Filters in the left sidebar. That will narrow the list of titles down to only those that have Finale files available.Our Finale files can be opened up in Finale, Finale Allegro, and Finale PrintMusic. You can see a comparison of the three programs here. It is important to note that your program needs to be of the same version or a newer version than the file itself. For example, Allegro 2012 can open Finale 2012 (and older) files, but not Finale 2014 files. However, we do recommend the full-fledged Finale software for its "linked parts" functionality. This makes working with the score and parts much more efficient and convenient.

Finale 2012's working environment sees palettes and floating windows accompanying a score window. It's busy, and there are plenty of techniques to learn, but it's certainly configurable. Engraving quality is superb, but in this score, created with the Setup Wizard, longer stave names were disappearing into the margins, or off the page completely.

Finale 2012's look and feel is surprisingly unchanged from when I last used Finale 3.1 about 18 years ago! You get your score window(s), plus a bunch of floating palettes and windows (like the Playback Controls and Mixer). Only the PC version allows palettes to be 'docked' into the main window, but on both Mac and PC platforms you get 11 well-stuffed menus, plus another one which comes and goes as tools are selected. As a working environment, it feels busy but purposeful.

Specific improvements in Finale 2012b/c and its immediate predecessors include better text handling, and in particular the possibility of editing text directly in the score rather than via dialogue boxes. I like the way that the out-of-range notes feature, which greys out noteheads as a warning they'd be impossible to play, can now be set to Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced, to take account of different skills levels of musicians you're writing for. There's also further improvement of the already flexible lyric entry, Unicode character support, and a numerics font for harmonic analysis markups and figured bass lines. The Score Manager is a new feature in 2012 and a very welcome aid to organisation.

The Score Manager is one of the least sexy but most important additions to Finale 2012. It's a floating window where you configure staves, instruments, names, stave type and ordering in the score, playback sounds, notation options, starting clef and so on. It can also edit score title, composer and copyright info, amongst other things. Presumably all this was previously done with multiple tools, so to have everything collected up together in this way is very welcome. I found using it to be notably more intuitive than some other Finale dialogue boxes, so it's a real step in the right direction for the application.

The teams will be raising money to help offset Emily's mounting medical bills and to fund cancer research. Please check out Emily's website to learn all about Emily's journey.

Bienstock's ultimate rival, Sean ("The Apprentice" prefers first names only), won more online votes from viewers of the job-interview reality show on NBC. It didn't hurt that Sean also went public about his plans to marry an attractive teammate on the season finale and also successfully managed his final assignment, a concert by the rock group Bare Naked Ladies at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J., to benefit the World Wildlife Fund.

With growth barely holding in positive territory and the outlook darkening, it is hardly the grand finale hoped for by Draghi, whose 2012 promise to do "whatever it takes" to save the euro -- code for rescuing heavily indebted countries -- is credited with saving the shared currency from collapse.

The time is certainly right for such a discussion following a year when Kony 2012 became the most widely spread and fastest spreading video in the history of YouTube and when "Binders of Women" emerged within minutes as part of the public's response to the presidential debates. Our argument, though, is that describing these processes as "going viral" does not deal adequately with the complex social processes and cultural stakes in expanding the role of the public -- as individuals and members of networks -- in shaping the circulation of media content. 041b061a72
