"Makemusic can solve the problem of MIDI CC#11. In Finale 2011, users can't change dynamics when using MIDI CC#11 with East West Libraries so that users think the crescendo don't work at all when using EW. Therefore, we hope we can draw dynamic hairpins as we like and hear them work better in Finale 2012. The problem has existed for many years since Finale 2007."

It's also a similar problem for the playback of CC#7, volume, through a text expression (regardless of the the library or synth), where the volume is changed by a percentage of the existing value rather than by the midi value.   If your midi volume is 80, changing it to 90 via text expression CC7 sets the new volume to 72, not 90.

I've seen other software I used either go belly-up or (as in the case of Adobe Audition) "upgraded" but in actuality stripped down to the point of uselessness.  I hope this doesn't occur with Finale.

I have not found a problem with CC11. It works fine, as does CC7 (although I really do not like or suggest the use of CC7 - any library that is well programmed will not force you to use CC7 for dynamics). Perhaps you have not set your Human Playback to use CC11 instead of CC1 for those samples? Note that making rules based on library or patch name will not work here, due to a bug with Kontakt support.

CC1 is a bigger problem. The CC1 setting in HP is designed for Garritan libraries, where key velocity is used for attack. It sends key velocity values equal to the attack of the notes. Many libraries that use CC1 as a dynamic controller also use key velocity as a secondary dynamic controller. This results in somewhat random dynamic differences from note to note, which can sound pretty awful. There should be two CC1 options, one for CC1 with key velocity for Garritan instruments, and one with CC1 with key velocity treated as a secondary dynamic controller as it is in most libraries.

Any update on Finale 2012 yet? A more specific date perhaps? Even a month? I'm about to finally upgrade from 2009, and I'm assuming that now it's worth waiting for 2012 before I do so.

i have a similar issue. Just got an update notice for Sibelius 7. I want to upgrade to a 64 bit version of either but not both.

Looks like Sibelius supports DTP features with Hierarchical styles within scores. For a book author (such as myself) this potentially eliminates the need for using Adobe Indesign for layout. That's huge for me. Will Finale support anything similar? If not, looks like it's a done deal.

Just curious -

What are "DeskTopPublishing features with Hierarchical styles within scores"?

hierarchical styles are components of publishing layout design software used to author books, magazine articles, etc. It means that you can author a professional, print-ready document from within Sibelius 7 without resorting to other tools. In the past, you typically authored the document in a publishing layout package and imported the music as PDF or TIF files. Sibelius 7 (and hopefully finale 2012) allow you to do everything from within the music layout tool.

Anotherwords, fairly advanced typographical controls, for starters. That's good!

It's on the list of features for sibelius 7. I wish Makemusic would at least comment on whether this will be in their next release.

They said "Fall 2011". It's not fall until next week, unless you go by "meteorological fall", which started September 1st. All in good time, friend.

I don't care about anything new, as long as the bugs and blatant programming mistakes are corrected. (A mistake isn't a bug, nor is it an error). Lots and lots and lots of mistakes in the percussion.

Well, I'd say a mistake is an error.

According to MakeMusic, people who do serious composing with Finale (most of the returning users here) make up about two percent of the user base. I expect absolutely no significant bugfixes in the upcoming version; new features are much more important for the company's business. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see options for using the old percussion mapping appear alongside the new system, similar to the concessions MM made for staff/note expressions in 2009 when they realized people were using them differently than intended. (Remember that?)

I finally tried Sibelius last night, after years of refusing to even touch it. You can't imagine my smile. I felt like a Christmas tree somebody just plugged in.


Over the years, I have gained the deepest respect for the impact of great music. If Beethoven mirrors our humanity and desire for transcendence, then for some of us a day without Beethoven's message is a day when we are not fully human.

Les

It's "fall" as you guys call it, big time. Haven't seen proper sunshine for over a month, and first frosts forming. It's definitely "fall" ...

... for those of us on this side of the pond, that means - er - fall.

If you measure something such as a volume or length with a measureing device, it will always be in error, because you can always get a more accuate device or method of measuring (as in "close, but no cigar"). A mistake, is something which is just plain wrong, such as a spelling misteak (sp).

I hate to be negative since I really do wish MM well, but the press release was about new technology: notation is not new technology, so I suspect we're talking something of the order of iPad, or something new new in playback sounds. Since new technology inevitably has new bugs, we should start preparing ourselves for the old bugs plus a whole crop of new ones.

Don't set your expectations so high that you can only be disappointed by the reality.

Fritz has a good point. I was thinking more along the lines of new technology behind the coding (which itself might then enable the support of new features and improved stability).

I'd hate to be accused of cynicism, and really hope I'm wrong, VERY wrong, but this ongoing silence is almost deafening. I mean, iOS 5 is out in "Fall", but we've all known most of what it will give us for months. Likewise anyone who follows the likes of Microsoft, Adobe, and many other industry standard companies, generally knows the gist, if not the detail, of software and hardware releases months, sometimes more than a year, before release.

But the total lack of any info, other than, "Wait, you'll be amazed", worries me.

Not that MM would do it to us, their loyal band of users, but we'd all certainly be "amazed" if on, say, 25 Dec 11, MM said, "That's it, we're outa here, go get a quill pen".

I think its time for a few heads-up "leaks" from the company we all support and keep in business ...

Who said, "Wait--you'll be amazed"?

Unless they fix one of my pet peeves like playing transposed pitch during data entry I doubt I'll upgrade--I waited six years last time (admittedly I should have only waited three or four). Or if the new UI somehow improves productivity.
