    MakeMusic Finale Notation Software (Mac and Windows) Product Description

    From inspiration to applause, music comes alive with Finale. Easily compose, arrange, notate, and print publisher-quality sheet music that plays back with world-class sounds. Whether you're creating orchestral film scores or .MP3 files for your iPod, Finale offers you the flexibility and freedom to create any music you can imagine.

    ScoreManager (New for Finale 2012!)

    Focus on your art. Leave the rest to your manager. Finale's ScoreManager takes care of the details - controlling how your staves look and sound - so you don't have to.

    Easily change a flute staff to a clarinet staff. Switch between flute and clarinet on the same staff. The ScoreManager knows how a clarinet staff transposes, looks, and sounds, so it makes all the necessary arrangements. The ScoreManager also handles playback and sound setup, so you don't have to navigate to various players or assign correct MIDI channels.

    With Finale 2012, you get the highest-quality virtual instruments and improved sound management. Finale's sound libraries are without equal. With Finale 2012, you have access to even more Garritan sounds. Based on your requests, new instrument sounds include:

    - Soprano sax

    - Celeste

    - Mandolin

    - Accordion

    - Euphonium solo

    - Recorder

    - Pipe organ - Baroque Plenum Reed stop

    - Pipe organ - Pedal stop


    Hear your music come alive with Garritan Instruments for Finale. Finale 2012 includes more than 400 world-class instrument sounds from the makers of Garritan Personal Orchestra. Free sounds include orchestral instruments, jazz brass, saxophones, piano, choirs, drum set, guitar, marching percussion, world instruments, church organ, a variety of electric guitars, five octaves of handbells, steel guitar, and a brush drum kit containing 50 additional sounds.

    Unicode text support

    Easily write and share your music with Finale 2012's Unicode font support. Now you can use all the characters in your fonts. Want to correctly type Dvorak's name? Are you translating a hymn to Korean? Need to add a hard-to-find symbol? Today's Finale can display any character you wish.

    Create PDF files

    Now it's simple to create PDF files within Finale, whether you use a Mac or a PC. Easily combine all your pages into a single document, share a single page, or any excerpt of a page.

    Your files always play back

    Send a Finale file to someone who doesn't have the same software libraries installed, and all your staves will play back the instruments you intended - even if they're using a PC and you're using a Mac. Finale uses the libraries you've specified whenever possible, and provides the best alternative when they're not. No matter how you share your music, everyone gets the best possible playback - automatically.

    Inspire Your Students

    There are more tools and resources in Finale 2012. For example, SmartMusic integration - a Finale exclusive! Instantly save your Finale creations as SmartMusic solo or ensemble accompaniments. Assign the piece to your students, assess their performance, and celebrate their success. Don't forget, with Finale's Exercise Wizard, more than 50,000 exercises are at your fingertips, and ready to use in SmartMusic.

    What is SmartMusic?

    SmartMusic provides the ideal practice environment for students, including access to the world's largest accompaniment library and instant feedback on each performance.

    An expanded library of resources

    Finale now provides more than 1,000 examples of music education worksheets, repertoire, and more for you to use or to customize for your needs. New to Finale 2012: Renaissance music, early jazz piano repertoire, intermediate piano pieces, holiday titles, manuscript paper templates, chant notation, and Schenkerian analysis.

    The Finale Numerics font

    The Finale Numerics font makes it easy to type in Roman numeral or harmonic analysis. Simplifying the stacking of numbers, it's also ideal for notating figured bass and can even be used to create Schenker graphs.

    Improved Percussion Notation

    Whether you're an expert user customizing percussion scores, or not sure where a bass drum goes on the staff, Finale gets your percussion notation to look and sound perfect in no time.

    Over 300 Music Educator Worksheets

    Finale now includes more than 300 ready-made, customizable, music education worksheets. Designed for K-12 students of general music, theory, band, orchestra, and choir, these educator-approved worksheets help teach basic elements of music.

    Broadway Copyist Font

    Introducing the Broadway Copyist font - created by Robert P., designer of the esteemed November and Medieval music fonts. Inspired by the golden era of handwritten Broadway scores, the Broadway Copyist font offers a lighter, classic appearance and:


    - A "cleaner" look with greater legibility (especially with text)

    - Expanded support of upper ASCI characters

    - Improved cross-platform capability


    Streamlined Notation Interface

    Note selection, entry, and placement of expressions is quick and intuitive. Once in your score, they are easily moved. You can instantly change the appearance of, for example, all your dynamics or rehearsal markings. You'll accomplish more - in less time - without sacrificing any of Finale's awesome power and control. It's also easy to move your markings around your score once they're entered.

    Tapspace Virtual Drumline Sounds

    Finale now includes more than 100 sounds from Tapspace Virtual Drumline, the world's most powerful marching and concert percussion software instrument, featuring the world-champion Santa Clara Vanguard percussion section.

    Garritan Aria player

    The Garritan Aria Player is included FREE and is fully integrated into Finale 2011. The level of custom integration is unsurpassed and offers superior sound, more control, and a vastly improved user playback experience. Multiple sound libraries work together seamlessly in Finale. Combine all the included sounds, including Tapscape Virtual Drumline Sounds, Finale's Garritan Instruments, Row-Loff Marching Percussion, Jose Cortijo's Latin Percussion, and the SmartMusic SoundFont.

    Multiple Page Editing

    Added true multi-page viewing and editing which allows users to both see more of their music and edit everything they see. While Finale has always been able to display multiple pages on your computer screen, edits could only be made on one page at a time. Now you can simultaneously view and edit as many pages as you choose to view on your monitor.


    - Copy and paste measures from one page to the next

    - Drag slurs from the end of one page to the beginning of another, and much more


    Choose from multiple viewing options including single pages, facing pages, and tiled pages. Click to the next page, next pair of pages, or choose to scroll continuously - horizontally or vertically. You can even choose to view your entire piece on screen at once with a tiled view. No other music notation software offers this flexibility. Best of all, you can edit any page in any view at any time.

    Import and Record Audio

    Give arrangements authenticity and life with a real vocal or instrumental track. Record or import a mono or stereo audio file to enhance playback. No other notation software offers this capability.

    Finale's audio support opens up a new world of possibilities.


    - Record a vocal track to a soprano aria

    - Add a trumpet solo to a jazz chart

    - Import a stereo mix of a rock band and add a horn arrangement
