I just put tempo markings in as text expressions.

What did the tempo tool give you that was different? I never used it.

I tried putting the tempo marking in as a text expression but it only "stuck" for one measure...hmph

Tempo tool was just easy, click the metronome, click the score, set the tempo you wanted for as long as you wanted it (could control by bar numbers).

thanks for the reply!

ps - creating a new tempo expression references the old tempo tool so not everything has been cleaned out - see screenshot

Hi Dave:
I'm with Jetcopy and just used the Expression tool.
The Tempo Tool functionality is found in the MIDI Tool. (https://usermanuals.finalemusic.com/FinaleMac/Content/Finale/ID_MAINTOOL_MIDI.htm)
You can also use the Tempo Tap Staff in Studio View to set tempo.
A good general overview on Tempo is here https://usermanuals.finalemusic.com/FinaleMac/Content/Finale/Tempo.htm

I'd stay away from Executable shapes. Human Playback works great for accel. and rit. Make sure you do have Human Playback turned on in Playback Controls. You can also get some weird results if in "Playback/Record Options" you don't have Dynamics and Markings set to chance from measure 1.

Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Michael

You've probably got underlying MIDI data (or even Tempo Tool settings, which are invisible) that needs clearing.

to follow up - I used the MIDI tool, selected the entire document, then applied the tempo and that seemed to work - cheers and thanks for your help everyone

ps - v25 still has at least one of the old bugs (weirdness around chord suffixes) but overall is much much faster and more stable than 2014.5 (for me anyway) - I bought the upgrade and have no regrets

I do not care the TEMPO TOOL is arcane, old fashioned or whatever name you would like to give it. I LIVED and LOVED TEMPO TOOL and it worked FINE for many many years. I have used FINALE since 1994 - that's 22 YEARS of paying for and learning FINALE and NOW they delete it all of a sudden?? - for apparently no reason at all - except to irk it's long-time members. I am just getting too old for this crap. Why do I have to RELEARN this software?

Finale should be about music - not software...

Sorry for the histrionics but - AT LEAST they could have mentioned something - somewhere. Wouldn't it have been nice? idea

You take the Finale 25 file, open it in 2014.5, add the tempo data, then go back to Finale 25. A workaround, but doable.

I generally use the MIDI Tool to do all my tempo changes as it is much easier than the Tempo Tool.

They did mention it, as well as the other changes/improvements, in the ReadMe file provided with Finale 25. Getting upset about the removal of an arcane feature in favour of better solutions is like getting upset at a car manufacturer for replacing the crank starter on the front bumper with a key-operated starter inside the car. Give those better solutions a try. As Zuill said, the MIDI Tool is much easier to use than the Tempo Tool.

I dunno - setting the tempo on a piece of music by opening the midi tool (midi, what's that?) and making some changes (make sure you select the measures you want to affect!) vs. clicking on a "tempo" button doesn't seem like much of a step forward to me.

But I agree it's not the end of the world.

Just imagine explaining the process to someone who is new to Finale, though. They would think you've lost your mind.

Dave,

Can you post a file where using a text expression only works for one measure? I honestly think this is the easiest way. You're simply adding a visual text indication to anyone who looks at the music, and it plays back. What could be easier?

I think the MIDI Tool is not as intuitive. Some of the menu commands work by adding MIDI data to the file and some work by editing pre-existing MIDI data but the labeling does not clearly indicate which does what. For example, if you try to Add, Scale (percentage-wise) or Percentage Alter a measure using the MIDI Tool and you haven't already entered MIDI data into the measure nothing happens and it appears like the program is not working. To the average person and "Add..." [a tempo change to my piece at the selected measure] is synonymous with "Set To..." [a certain tempo at the selected measure]. Likewise, than piece/file already has a tempo (as can be seen on the transport bar or an expression at the beginning) so a user is reasonable to think that using the MIDI Tool to Scale (percentage-wise) or Percentage Alter should change that tempo accordingly. But it doesn't...unless you've already add MIDI data to the measure in question.

Then there's the issue of multiple tempo changes that are relative to the opening tempo and later wanting to experiment with different opening tempos...especially if you have hard tempo marks also in the score. The Tempo Tool seems to be happy with Chasing the Tempo from the first measure but the MIDI Tool is not so cooperative.

The MIDI Tool shows graphically what the MIDI tempo changes are. That is easy to see. In prior versions, in the Tempo Tool, you couldn't see the graphic representation. So, you still had to go to the MIDI Tool to easily see it.
 
The problem with text expressions is that certain HP settings manipulate them. In order to see what I mean, apply the HP plugin or HP feature and then go to the MIDI Tool and look at the graphic representation. You'll be surprised at how the MIDI tempo wanders all over the place as HP applies its voodoo.

What does that even mean? Finale IS software, which attempts to assist in the replication of music notation, using methods provided by the designers.

Try the Expression Tool. Add expressions that are clearly visible (but not necessary printing) in the score, so you can see what tempo assignments you have made, rather than invisible parameters in the Tempo or MIDI tools. Who knows, you may even like it.

I'm sorry to report that learning new things is a fairly fundamental and constant aspect of the human experience.

Certainly the graphic representation of MIDI is easily understood, but that's not what I was getting at. I was mainly talking about the potentially confusing labels which former Tempo Tool users will now have to deal with and the work people working with many relative tempo changes will have to do if they want to audition different starting tempi.

BTW - Which text expression are you referring to. I put in a few but my MIDI Tool window doesn't show anything.

If you just want to set the tempo from some point forward, it's easier to use an expression. Use the MIDI tool if you want a ritardando or accellerando just so.

Hi

I've never had a lot of time for manipulating the tempo with the tempo or midi tools. Not saying that it's bad/wrong or anything, just a personal thing.
I've always found it easiest to use expressions. Even fine tuning ritards or accellerandi. Using a combination to tempo marks and HP expressions seem to work, and I get to see things there on the score without having to go into the midi tool.



It's a bit messy, but it makes sense to me <grin>

Yeah, that's the kind of visual mess that I try to avoid. It is very clear as to what's going on though... I don't think the removal of the Tempo Tool helps the user in any way but it does make certain situations (as I describe above) trickier and given that the graphically representation requires extra steps to show text expressions can be just as opaque.

I've never touched the tempo or MIDI tools.

if I need fine-tuning of tempos I have a stack of non-printing (invisible) tempo markings, they take very little room, usually nothing more than q=60 (with a quarter note replacing the letter).

I think what CubanBach may be trying to say is that the software should be designed to accommodate the composer in the creation of music as opposed to accommodating the programmers (i.e., one less tool to have to maintain/test/troubleshoot). Finale is the method provided by the designer to replicate music notation and this latest version has become less of a help than before in certain context. I think he's making a cost-benefit analysis on the tempo issue and sees the musician coming up shorter (irrespective of a learning curve).
Did I get that right SeƱor CubanBach?
 
Maybe removal of the Tempo Tool fixed 172 bugs...that they didn't bother to list.tongue

Just downloaded the Finale 25 trial.
Trying to work out how to use the midi tool to change tempos.
I always used the Tempo Tool before, and found it easy to set the tempo for each beat of the bar.
I don't use Human Playback.
How do I do that now?

Thanks anyone!

What I do (though I don't set multiple tempos often) is go

Tools > Midi

then to

Midi Tool and select Tempo

then select the measures I want to change (for me usually just select all)

then

Midi Tool > Set to

then put the tempo value you want in the Set To window

hope that's helpful

I can set the tempo for the bar there, but how do I set the tempo for each beat?

When in the Tempo Tool, select one beat in the staff. Then use the drop down menu to choose Set, and put the tempo there. Tempo must be selected first from the MIDI Menu.

I've often used MIDI tempo to perfectly align MIDI tempi imported from other environments.
I don't seem to be able to do this any longer with Finale 25 (I'm trying the demo version).

I have a voice containing some MIDI tempo values. How can I EXACTLY see what they are, and then possibly modify them EXACTLY?
Metronome tool used to do this: I used to click on a measure, scroll forward or backward on the tempi list, and see/modify each one of them.
How am I supposed to do this now in Finale 25?
This is a huge deal for my workflow.

Thanks in advance,
Daniele

Posted By : Daz - 8/31/2016 4:58 AM
Hi Daniele

open your file.
Switch to Scroll View and and select the MIDI Tool
From the MIDI Tool menu, select "Edit Tempo"
Scroll to the section of interest
Double click on any staff
The upper portion of your document will diplay a tempo map/track
On the Left hand side is a scale showing the BPM. If there is no line visible, place you mouse over the scale, 'grab' it and move the scale up/down until you see the line
To actually edit/change a section, highlight an area (in the upper portion of the window)
Click on the MIDI Tool menu. You'll be able to "Set to", Scale, % Alter, limit etc.

Cheers...

Hi Daz, and thanks for helping me.
Via your suggestion I am now able to set the value I wish via "set to", but I don't seem to be able to INSPECT the existing tempo value.
How can I see PRECISELY the tempo value at any given point? The BPM graph is too coarse, I can't inspect anything. I'd really like to see the tempo (say 64.87) and then being able to slightly correct it (an I can indeed do this via "Set To", provided I have a way to inspect existing tempo...)

Any clue on how to do this?

Thanks again,

Posted By : Daz - 8/31/2016 6:18 AM
Hi Daniele

I'm very sorry, but I'm not able to see any way of seeing precisely the tempo at any given point.

I can offer one "kludge", however.
The scale to the left gives you an approximate.
Select a section and select "Set to" from the MIDI Tool menu
Enter a value which you feel is close.
If the line moves for that section, then the guess was incorrect.
If the line stays as it was, then the value you chose was correct
The line noticeably moves if there a 1bpm difference.

So...
Select a section
Select "Set to..."
observe the result
Edit->Undo
If the line did not move, you have the BPM for that section
If the line did move, take note of which direction and try the procedure again. Rinse and repeat until you have the exact tempo.

Clumsy... but doable.

Hopefully someone else here might have a more elegant suggestion.

Note that you can only enter a whole number. For example 123.5 will get rounded up to 124

Cheers...

Hi Daz, unfortunately this is not doable, I'm talking about decimal changes in the tempo, which I cannot even see graphically.
This completely breaks my workflow and makes me rethink the utility of Finale. Such a crucial feature used to be there, and for some reason is now missing.

In any case, thanks again for your help!

Fortunately, 2014.5 still does this. open the file in 2014.5 and edit there.

I agree that the MIDI Tool is not as precise as the Tempo Tool. That is too bad, and an unfortunate setback. In the past, MakeMusic has restored features when enough users report the loss. I would start by reporting your findings to MakeMusic and see what happens.

Hi

Rather than reintroducing the tempo tool, I'd love to see the MIDI tool updated to be more useful.
The ability to draw in curves (tempo, Velocity, CC data) or at least point editing. ie A midi event (be it a tempo/time sig change, cc event etc) represented as a point which can be selected and manipulated by dragging or entering/modifying numeric values. It would be best if these points were visibly connected by lines.
A status line which reports the value of the line/point under the mouse cursor or currently selected.

Cheers...

+1 for Daz's suggestion.
It's extremely important for a professional tool to be able to read and set MIDI event values precisely. Tempo changes are actually representable by points and being able to select/manipulate/edit point precisely would be essential. (Again, it's a pity Finale has removed the only thing that made fine tuning of tempi, and hence perfect sync, possible.)

Posted By : Patrick Rice - 11/1/2016 11:18 PM
The old Tempo Tool allowed me to make a percentage change to the tempo for a section of music RELATIVE to whatever the playback tempo was. This is critical in going from duple to sesquialtera in Renaissance music. Sure I can set a fixed tempo, say minim = 60 and set it for the triple section at minim = 90 then back to 60 for the next duple section. Before Fin 2014 I could set the percentages of change and then set the initial tempo on the fly. If I wanted it faster I could change one number and everything would change appropriately. Now what do I do? The help files say I can still change percentages through the midi tool, but I haven't been able to make it work. Any suggestions?

IMO, tempo manipulation has always been inconvenient in Finale. At least with the MIDI tool, we get a visual representation of the tempo track, but our ability to inspect and adjust it is, to say the least, primitive.

As Daniele said, "Tempo changes are actually representable by points." It's very frustrating that, after all these decades, the folks at makemusic haven't yet given us a straightforward graphical editor that allows us to create, examine, and move those points to whatever degree of precision we need in both their magnitude and their placement.
