That's my first post in the forum and I have recently readed about the possibilities of the Finalescript. So, I would like to use them in order to improve my workflow.

Normally, I prepare different "learning-mp3" for the choir (for sopranos, for tenors...). Each voice (also each divisi) is written in a different track. I have to do the next actions "by hand" and I would like to do automatically (as much as possible)

- Select one track

- Change the sound in the Score Manager. Normally I use for the slected tracks:

a. Oboe: when the soprano it has been selected

b. French Horn when the alts or the tenors have been selected

c. Trombon when the basses have been selected

(Normally I use Garritan VST. The rest of the tracks have the "Choir Ahhh" as sound)

- Change the volumes:

a. 127 for the selected track

b. 50 for the rest

- Change the PAN

a. 127 for the selected track

b. 0 for the rest of the tracks

- Export as Wav

- Select the next track and repeat the previous list of actions.

Provably it is a bit complex for the first time, but I would like to do it step by step.

Thank you in advance and sorry about muy poor english

Best wishes

I doubt if Finalescript can do this.

Autohotkey could probably do a lot of it, if you want to learn some basic scripting.

Grid Hotkey Interface for Finale - free, open source, and mostly... a work in progress.

I will search information about that. In another fourm somebady talked about JWL. There are interesting ideas and I will like to do something. I have used Visual Basic and Fortran but some years ago.
