MakeMusic's Finale 2011 is your go-to solution for all your music notation needs, whether you're a professional composer or a music educator. Finale has long been a leader in the field, and this latest version offers many enhancements that will help you improve the way you write and publish music. An incredibly fluid workflow based on entering notes via any form imaginable - by mouse, computer keyboard, MIDI controller, microphone, even scanned-in sheet music - lets you work in whatever way you're most comfortable. Thanks to a much-improved lyric engine, you can add lyrics and instrument-specific notation simply and naturally to get professional results every time.
The lyric engine isn't the only aspect of Finale that received a major upgrade with this latest version. Finale 2011's entire staff layout process has become much easier to use too. Once you've entered your composition into Finale 2011, you can play it back with an expanded library of 375 world-class instrument sounds from the Garritan Personal Orchestra, giving you an authentic feel for how your work will sound in the real world. You can also record real instrument performances in Finale 2011 for genuine accompaniment options, or you can load up your favorite VST and AU plug-ins and use them for playback.
Other expanded content includes a library of over 800 classroom-ready music education worksheets designed for K-12 students. These worksheets include material that's appropriate for general music, theory, band, orchestra, and choir classes. For younger students, there's the new Finale AlphaNotes font, which puts note names or solfege into the note heads. Overall, MakeMusic Finale 2011 is loaded with subtle yet major improvements that will benefit anyone using the program or the music composed in it.
