Coda History. Chapter 4
After the disastrous 2003 release, the management team panicked, realizing that the parent company might at any moment remember that it had purchased Coda Music Tech-no-logic. (The niece of the parent company’s founder was married to a billiards player, and because of an unfortunate interpretation of the canonic facilities function, the girl had persuaded her uncle the program might be a good investment). Absentmindedly he bought Coda and then, fortunately, forgot about it.
The only ray of sunshine in a gloomy situation was that the rival program’s developers, having tested Fk3, were now in a sanatorium for 6 months recovering from hysterical risibility.
So, what features would re-conquer disappointed customers : three-dimensional layers, erotic rests, a random cacophony option ? Help came from an unexpected direction. An independent developer named Tobias Sunasican, while working on a Time Signature Plug-in, accidentally invented a Time Travel Plug-out, which allowed Undo past file creation. The beta testers went back so far that they received an e-mail from a certain Schubert who was trying to finish a symphony in B minor. The message was almost incomprehensible, but the Glitz team quickly developed a parchment and quill pen skin which enabled it to be read. Unfortunately it just turned out to be a complaint about known program bugs……
The function seemed useless and was therefore about to be incorporated into the next release when a Japanese employee at Coda Tech (who had hitherto been criticized for his distressing habit of communicating with customers) had a brilliant idea. « Since it takes three updates before sensible customer suggestions are implemented, the Plug-out will let us issue the 2007 release before the 2k4, 2k5 and 2k6 updates » he said. The name of this genius was First Dan.
And so Finale 2007 was issued three years in advance with a free Coda toothbrush. And had it not contained the Playback Collisions bug and the Sideways File Compatibility problem, it would have conquered the market.
It was rather a pity that the Tuba Rest Symphony prosecution halted this market penetration. (See Chapter 13b :-)

All of this was referred to the Campaign for Real Time as cited in The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Let's hope that the future owners of Finale don't turn out to be the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation, or we're all screwed.

Well in the spirit of bug fixing speculation status for all upgraders, I'll continue my monthly reporting of all Win XP Pro "Windows Error Reports" I receive about "finale.exe". May they some day get fixed ONCE and for ALL.

Lately I had two warm reboots with F2K3, and after rebooting though "claiming" to report the serious error to Windows Online Crash Analysis' site, a look at the Error Log (with the System Information accessory system utility), didn't "report" them! Is this a Codatech conspiracy for bug fixes ?

This is clearly a driver problem. (Probably something like Finale is using a driver API that your driver doesn't fully support in some way.)
Does it happen during input or playback or screen redraws?


Best regards,
