Alright, so when I first started using Finale 2004 on my home Mac I was having zero problems using human playback. But all of the sudden with no changes to the system Finale quits everytime I try and playback a file using Human Playback. Any suggestions or fixes that anyone could provide would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

yep, it's a problem. Anything bigger than a solo piano piece would cause F2k4 to fall over (thank heavens for OSX!) I never use Human Playback now.

While researching some human playback questions of my own, stumbled upon your question.
I suddenly had problems in HP as well with a full orchestra piece. HP kept shutting down when it processed up to about 30 percent.
I reparied permissions and it works perfectly again. When was the last time you repaired permissions?

What are these 'permissions' you speak of and how may I repair them?

I am having the same problem with HPlayback, though only with one particular piece which has only two instruments while I've gotten much bigger pieces to use it successfully.

Repairing permissions is much like the old Rebuild Desktop and it really helps fix things. Always use it after installing applications or whenever the computer is acting strange.

1. Application folder (this is for OSX ONLY)
2. Utilities folder. Find the disk utility, which looks like a hard drive with a stethescope on it.
3. Select the icon with the manufacturer's name — your main hard drive.
4. Select Verify Permissions. This looks for things that are out of whack. Depending on how many things are whacked, you may be able to go fix a quick sandwich or mow the yard. Just let it do it's thing. When the verification is finished, it will list what was whacked. You can read this mish-mash if you want. I prefer to move on to the next step
5. Select repair permissions. Once again, you'll either be able to go fix a sandwich, or say hi to the kids, or go finish the yard (or watch the kids do the mowing!!)
6. When this process is done, your done. Click out of the window and do whatever you need to do. I tend to repair permissions once a week. A friend said that if his computer is really acting up, he'll do what I just told you and THEN, he'll select the next Icon (your harddrive with the assigned name — "my computer," "Oscar", "Mr. Peabody," whatever it happens to be called and then repeats the process. I've now done this as well. Don't know if it made a difference, but it never hurts to try.
7. I also recommend defragging (nortone utilities or any other program of that sort that will defrag the hard drive). Disk Warrior and Tech tools are also good programs to have just in case your computer decides to have a nervous breakdown
