I finally installed after what MArk posted.


But WHAT did you install? The 30-day trial? I don't see a proper product download anywhere.
I installed 2014.5.


Zuill


Yeah, I get that much. What I am trying to figure out is WHERE the software is. Can somebody please provide a link or at least a hint as to what page it is on?

As requested! For me, quarters on 2 and 4 are hidden in 2014, but show in 2014.5 even if "Keep the notes hidden" is selected.

Thanks. And for anybody else confused by it, here is the procedure:

1) login to your MakeMusic account.
2) Under Existing Customers, enter your email address (or username) and password, and click LOG IN.
3) On the My Software page, find your Finale 2014 registration and click Download.
4) Click DOWNLOAD FOR WINDOWS.
5) Follow the onscreen instructions to download and install Finale 2014.5.

On your "my software" page, it is indicated only as Finale 2014, but that is actually 2014.5.

Nevermind. I forgot that was under View/Show and not under Preferences. The hidden notes are gone. No bug, my bad.

I've noticed that my sample rates are now at 48000 rather than 44100. Things play from Finale 2014.5 OK; I haven't checked out if audio export is fine.

If there's no Export to 2014, does that mean 2014.5 musx files can be opened directly in 2014d? Also (and I anticipate a big NO on this), can I copy my .ini file from 2014 into 2014.5 and avoid spending an hour or more customizing my preferences?

2014 and 2014.5 files go either way. As far as the ini file, you can try it and see what happens, I suppose. Maybe save the 2014.5 file as is (some preferences have been set) just in case it fails.

The documentation says that it is no longer required that Finale run at 44100. I figure 48000 (which mine also shows) is derived from the sound card setting. Mine sound card is set to 48000, so that is why I guessed that.

The Hyperscribe Finale Click bug is still there. The settings for downbeat and other beats still are useless. No matter the setting, they are all the same.

Every HP bug that I have had in 2014 is still there in 2014.5? Does anyone have a report on what was actually fixed? It's as if HP was almost entirely ignored.

Another unfixed bug: selecting Display in Concert Pitch causes a respace command. I know I can turn things off in preferences, but in earlier versions, this did not happen, and shouldn't.

What did get fixed? Obviously all of our chatter on the forum somehow fell on deaf ears. I'm glad this wasn't a paid update. I would have really been disappointed. I guess I need to search harder for something that did get fixed.

Zuill

The Readme lists a bunch of fixes. There were a couple of things on that list that will help me, if they actually are what they sound like.

Taking the optimist's view, the positive news here is that they have made significant changes to the product without completely breaking everything. I do have a new problem that playback goes dead after a successful export to WAV. But mostly, the product seems pretty stable. It is a pretty scary thing when a new staff takes over an old code base.

As they are able to fix some problems now, it iw probably worthwhile to make sure the main problems are documented. I know this has been done before, but the company has been through a lot of changes.

Zuill, Mark provides a link to the Read Me file in his post, which contains information on all the bug fixes, interface changes and new features.

He also explicitly states that the bug fixes were prioritized by customer requests.

I read the readme and it seems that much of what is there is superficial. What's amazing to me is that many of the HP functionality that was broken in 2014 still is broken. In other words, it used to work, got broken, and remains broken. There are many playback glitches that just make for frustrating playback.

Anyway, it seems they did more about stripping features and plugins, or changing their location, but left many things broken. A good example is the repeated note bug with HP. The only solution is to turn off to incorporate start/stop MIDI data.

I read the list, but not much there.

Fixes in Finale 2014.5
Copying music

Crescendo/decrescendo markings
• Hairpins can now be edited in measures with a whole rest in a time signature smaller than 4/4.

• You can now undo adding a measure when the measure was added while viewing a part.
• Using a slash in a part name no longer results in an error message when extracting parts.

Measure numbers
• CTRL-clicking a measure when a different measure is highlighted now correctly displays the measure number on the clicked measure.
Multiple monitors

MusicXML
• Exported MusicXML files now support linked graphics in JPEG, PNG, GIF, and BMP format.

instructions in the exported MusicXML file.
opening and saving files
• The open/Save File dialog boxes have been updated to be resizable on all Windows operating systems.
Pickup measures
• Copying all the music from one staff to another in a document with an empty pickup measure no longer produces offset results.
Plug-ins

• The Cautionary Accidentals plug-in now accurately adds parentheses to notes with accidentals when instructed.
• The Add Cue Notes plug-in now adds the name of the cued instrument to the cue.
• The Global Staff Attributes plug-in now accurately reflects current staff attributes, including the recently-
added Redisplay Accidentals in Other Layers Within Measures option.

• Finale now respects the state of the Clean Up File Data option in the Preferences - open dialog box. Printing and PDFs

As I said, many of those are either not issues I ever had or are minor compared to the many things which didn't get fixed. I realize SmartMusic is important to many, but I am going to say that the HP playback problems affect SmartMusic as well, and should be fixed. How many posts do we get here about repeated notes not playing back? Many. And that isn't fixed.

I guess MM didn't know that that was a problem for many, even though it was reported many times to them.

I did read the list, several times.

As I suspected in my previous post, regarding Garritan libraries that do not come bundled with F2014.5, after installing F2014.5, you must properly install the AUXILLIARY files in order to interface the libraries with Finale.  The link for instructions and the auxiliary files was posted earlier.  Just use F2014.5 instead of F2014 in the instructions.  Otherwise, they are now accurate, as far as Windows is concerned.  I cannot speak for Macs.

The Garritan Instruments for Finale (GIFF) library had a revision in the XML file available from MM for F2014.d.  This revised file, fortunately was carried forward in F2014.5.

I only have the GPO4.02 library, so I can only address it.  The soundmap file provided in the auxiliary file (GPO4.ZIP) from the MM website, unfortunately, still is full of typos and omissions.  I have corrected the file in the past.  If you have it, place it in the appropriate directory in place of GPO4Full.soundmap provided in the ZIP.  For anyone using GPO4 who does not have the corrected file, I will be glad to email it to you.  Request it via my email link in the left hand panel.

I wonder if I am missing something. I have the Garritan Jazz & Big Band 3 library. I didn't have to do anything special. Those instruments are all recognized in 2014.5.

I did have to update my VST folders list to pick up other VSTs though.

I don't know Craig.  All I can say is that my GPO4 was not seen in F2014.5 until I stopped F2014.5, installed the auxiliary files, and restarted F2014.5.  The referenced instructions have similar instructions for JABB3, so I am confused if it works for you without having to do what it says.

Am I correct that you mean the repeated notes blur together rather than that any are missing?

I also had to copy the support files for JABB, GPO4, and GWI into the new 2014.5 sub-folders to see the additional Garritan packages in Setup and the Score Manager, but then they work fine.

Just from a cursory play through, my harp glissandi are iffy (some play, others don't), and the sample doesn't respond to staccato or hand damp marks anymore.

If the composer says in effect to the performer: "I do not care whether you perform my music or not," we cannot argue the matter. But if he indicates: "I want you to perform and respond to this music," then his fundamental duty is to write his music so that it is accessible to interpretation. When the performer cannot approach the composer's meaning because of capriciously obscure notation, he may in effect say to the composer: "Why should I bother to puzzle out your music?" - Gardner Read

I also had to copy the support files for JABB, GPO4, and GWI into the new 2014.5 sub-folders to see the additional Garritan packages in Setup and the Score Manager, but then they work fine.
I am talking about an actual muting of the following note(s). Unless HP preferences is set to ignore Start/Stop MIDI data, this can be a problem. And the MIDI data I'm talking about is just the stock data related to Speedy Entry. Since applying the plugin (now a feature) to Apply HP doesn't have the problem, it sure seems they can fix the real time playback.

Good afternoon everyone!

I’m pleased to announce that Finale 2014.5 is now available for download. Finale 2014.5 is a free upgrade for all Finale 2014 owners.

Finale 2014.5 incorporates new features, bug fixes, and significant modernization of Finale code.

The installation of Finale 2014.5 will not change your existing Finale 2014 installation, but installs as a new separate application. There is no need to delete or uninstall 2014d before installing 2014.5.

Features added in this release include:

  • Options to automatically create double barlines before key changes
  • The ability to change sample rates
  • A means to quickly and easily reorder staves
  • Enhanced MusicXML and EPUB support
  • Options to automatically create double barlines before key changes
  • The ability to save SmartMusic accompaniments with premium VST/AU instrument sounds, including the provided Garritan sounds
  • Updated SmartScore X2 Lite scanning software, with many improvements in core musical features such as beams, augmentation dots, and tuplets

All plug-ins provided with the update have also been modernized, and many have been enhanced, including Finalescript, Global Staff Attributes, Latin Percussion, TG Tools Lite, Band-in-a-Box Auto-Harmonizing and more. Finale’s documentation was also overhauled, offering vastly improved search results and compatibility with any device, including smartphones and tablets. (This could allow you, for example, to have Finale’s documentation displayed on your iPad while you work on your laptop or desktop computer.)

The release also resolves several dozen bugs, prioritized by customer requests. A complete list of what’s included in Finale 2014.5 for PC users is here

You will be directed to your update to Finale 2014.5 by opening Finale 2014 and clicking Help > Check for Updates.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

If it was an upgrade why not have the last 2014d in our accounts also and not just supplanted by 2014.5?

Inquiring minds want to know?

That bothered me too. It seems someone might need 2014 and not 2014.5. HMMM.

The last several releases/updates have been distributed as full functional downloads to be stored on your HD for future use.  It did not use to be this way.  You should not have deleted the F2014 install file, in case you need it for whatever reason.
