How the pros write sheet music.
When deadlines loom and there’s no room for mistakes, music professionals choose Finale. Continually evolving, today’s Finale brings that proven reliability to every musician. Produce the music of your imagination without compromise. No other music notation software offers Finale’s level of control, letting you decide both what and how you create. At every rehearsal, know that your score will sound great, your parts are ready, and you have clearly communicated your musical vision. Your music notation reflects your artistry: don’t make concessions. Join the world’s foremost engravers and publishers who rely on Finale to look their very best.
Finale includes a vast library of premium Garritan sounds to inspire your creative process and impress your audience. Finale’s exclusive Human Playback makes those sounds come alive. Finale lets you choose how you share your music. Produce printed pages, PDF, MIDI, MusicXML and audio files. Collaboration is easy with both forward and backwards compatibility. Finale has always been known as the notation software that can create anything. Today’s Finale automates many tasks, saving you time while ensuring you retain all of the flexibility Finale is known for. Now you can create the music of your imagination, with no compromises, more quickly than ever before. Take control of your music, your creative process, and your legacy.
When you add more than one articulation to a note, they now stack automatically – and intelligently – eliminating the need for manual edits.
As you add or adjust slurs, existing articulations will automatically adjust to avoid collisions. Finale knows what articulations should go inside and outside a slur, and will also split up stacked articulations so that everything fits.
Instant tremolos and rolls
When placing a tremolo or roll on a note, Finale adjusts the note’s stem as necessary, whether the note is flagged, unflagged, or part of a beamed group. Enjoy engraver-quality results without the fuss.
Finale version 26 allows you to flip articulations from note side to stem side with a keystroke. It also knows when to center an articulation on the stem or the note, and does so as you make changes.
New expressions and articulations
Finale’s expression and articulation libraries have been overhauled, expanded, and refined for playback. Not only do they look better, but you also save time by not having to create or configure them.
Musicians often disagree on chord suffixes. Whether you prefer one-, two-, or three-letter suffixes, Finale now recognizes your favorites as you type them, and sets them up to look and sound great.
- Auto-Stacking Articulations — Add more than one articulation on the same note, such an accent below a fermata, and they stack intelligently and automatically, reducing the need for manual positioning.
- Slur/Articulation Interaction — As you add slurs, existing articulations automatically adjust to avoid collisions, and will continue to do so if you move things later. Finale understands what should go inside or outside a slur and will even split up stacked articulations to make everything fit.
- Tremolos, Rolls, and Stem Lengths — Automatically adjusts stem lengths when necessary to ensure tremolos and rolls never collide with flags or beams
- Horizontal Centering — Automatically centers articulations on both noteheads and stems based on your settings and allows you to instantly flip articulations from notehead side to stem side (or vice-versa).
- Expanded Libraries — Newly optimized for ease of entry, Finale's included articulations and expressions have been expanded and refined to look great, greatly reducing the need for you to create them from scratch. Chord Symbols have similarly been overhauled for maximum intelligibility, elegant appearance, and fast entry.
- More — Finale 26 also includes many new templates, Smart Shapes, performance enhancements, bug fixes, and features to help you more quickly create your music.
