MakeMusic Finale 2006Published on 06/07/09 at 23:13
Finale is quickly becoming, if not already, one of the most popular music notation programs on the market today. My college used it exclusively, as are many universities and conservatories around the world. I didn't have a really hard time setting it up, as long as your MIDI controller/keyboard is in order, and you read how to make it work on your computer, you really shouldn't have a problem. The setup isn't too crazy, though it's a bit more intense than your average software setup because of the MIDI issues. The functionality of the program is a chore at first. This is definitely a program that takes some getting used to, and it will frustrate even the most musically knowledgeable......

Finale is quickly becoming, if not already, one of the most popular music notation programs on the market today. My college used it exclusively, as are many universities and conservatories around the world. I didn't have a really hard time setting it up, as long as your MIDI controller/keyboard is in order, and you read how to make it work on your computer, you really shouldn't have a problem. The setup isn't too crazy, though it's a bit more intense than your average software setup because of the MIDI issues. The functionality of the program is a chore at first. This is definitely a program that takes some getting used to, and it will frustrate even the most musically knowledgeable people with how complex it is. 

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

As annoying as the program is to use at first, it's arguable the most detailed program I've used for notation. I've never been too happy with some programs, since their playback hasn't been able to accurately reproduce what I've composed. Finale is pretty good about this, and they also have the most detail-oriented approach that I've seen. I'm able to add any touch to the music at any time, and eventually, after all the shortcuts have been learned, it gets done pretty quickly. The gear does tend to have problems on occasion; sometimes the MIDI won't sync up well at all, and the interface doesn't get noticed by the computer on occasion. The performance overall, though, is pretty good. 

OVERALL OPINION

I like the fact that this notation software accurately represents your compositions in its playback, and that it has so many features that you can use in your notation. I have tried Sibelius, and while I initially preferred that program due to it's simplicity, I would have to recommend Finale for people who really need quality sheet music with more detail and elaborate functions. I think that the tones that come with the software are pretty weak, but buying a plug-in or two tends to rectify that problem, as there are some pretty decent sounding plug-ins out there. I think that Finale is pretty reasonably priced, especially if you are going to make money off of your work, in which case Finale will more than pay for itself, simply because your productivity over time will increase. I would certainly recommend to composers and copyists alike. I personally don't use it enough to say that I'd buy it again, but I'm sure that down the line I'll have more use for it.

MakeMusic Finale 2006c French version
Installation without any problems, the software comes on two CDs (to contain the Garritan VST plug-in of about 1GB). The installation options are selected at the beginning, you can choose to install (or not) Finale, Finale Performance Assessment and Garritan.
No conflict, unless one wants to walk for non-VSTi powered by Native Instruments Kontakt
The intuitive configuration could not be simpler, and allows the user guide in the worst case to navigate easily.
The 200-page manual contains lessons for learning basic (very) beginner in twenty lessons very detailed and clearly explained. This is very useful for those who want to start in musical......

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

PC Tandytronic on ASUS P5GV-MX with Intel Pentium 4 3.40 GHz (3.71 GHz overclock) 1GB of RAM, a 300GB Serial ATA hard disk partitioned, SoundMax audio chipset and controller MIDI keyboard M-Audio Keystation 88es.
The software runs flawlessly, even with the Garritan charged four times for production Symphony. The 2006c version (French) never buggy.
The software has an infinite amount of possibilities is very impressive to see the power of production that can be with. The configuaration intuitive and easy to access features enable even beginners to navigate easily.
No problem, so in this configuration (no problem really)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for several months, and after a symphony, a symphonic poem, a dozen songs, piano pieces, etc. ... (Well short of everything) I still have not found any limits to what high-powered software that's worth the money (€ 285 new). With the best will in the world, I can not find a weak point! Perhaps the non-compatible plug-in for Finale Garritan VST with Cubase, but compréhansible ...
Before, I had version 2005d. Skip, forthe same price, quality VST, it's really a helpful development.
€ 300 for this software is an excellent price / quality ratio.
I do not regret at all the buying, and I intend to buy the 2007!
