Your music, your way

Enter notes your way
The choice is yours. Play in your notes with a MIDI keyboard, mouse, or computer keyboard. Scan sheet music or import a wide variety of file types, such as MIDI and MusicXML™. You can even capture a brass or woodwind performance with Finale’s MicNotator®.
Finale 25.5 Update Notes: High Sierra
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.
