The long awaited Finale 2014 is finally here, and is available for electronic delivery!
To notate music is to look forward to the performance, and beyond. Whether you’re creating a simple lead sheet, making worksheets for your students, or composing your magnum opus, Finale helps you easily capture your musical ideas, produce beautiful notation, and quickly share the results.
For 25 years, Finale’s unique ability to create anything on the printed page has remained undisputed while other music notation software has come and gone. Finale 2014 is the forward-looking choice with new innovations, making Finale’s trademark freedom and flexibility easy for everyone to use.
When inspiration strikes, Finale takes care of the details so you can focus on your music. Capture ideas as fast as you can with no obstacles to slow you down.
In an instant you can move measures, change keys, or perform dozens of edits to capture, arrange, perfect, and print anything you can imagine. Finale even offers creative and editorial input, from automatically harmonizing your melody to indicating when an instrument is out of range.
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.
If you own a previous version of Finale, you will have to purchase the upgrade from MakeMusic directly, as they don't sell upgrades through dealers. (Let them know when you contact them that you would perfer to buy from us!)
