What’s New in Finale 26:
create your way
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, you 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.
Finale v26 also includes performance enhancements, improved Retina support, bug fixes, many new templates, and more.
