how would I go about putting a MIDI or a coda music notation file onto a CD so that I can play it into a normal stereo player? I really need this for a MAJOR music performance thanks

Depends on what version of Finale you have.


(Currently using: Finale 2003a, Windows XP-Home, TGTools 2.25, and The Glenlivet when I can afford it.)

I'm using PrintMusic, not Finale, but the principle should be the same. I just play the music back in the normal way as I would to hear it, and then use the Creative recorder (which comes with my sound card) to record it to a .WAV file which I can then burn to a CD using either Windows XP's built in CD writing facilities, or Nero Burning ROM. An alternative which lets me tweak the balance of instruments and pan them to where I want them is to save as a midi file from PrintMusic, load the file into a sequencer and write the .WAV file directly from that. Finale may have facilities to save directly as a .WAV file, which makes the process a bit easier.
I have mentioned specific utilities, but you may have others - there are many utilities which will let you record to file, burn files to an audio CD, etc - just use whatever you have, any of them should do the same job.
If you give more details of what hardware and software you have, I can maybe give you more specific help.

If you have Finale 2004 you can save directly to a .wav file, then use XP or Nero, etc. to create your CD. Otherwise, Fritz covered all the other alternatives.

I've used Apple iTunes (Windows version) to burn midi's to CD.
