|New from MakeMusic: Finale 2007 Music Notation Software
MakeMusic, Inc. announces the release of Finale 2007 for Macintosh and Windows computers. This major upgrade to MakeMusic's powerful music notation software includes a variety of new features designed to enhance productivity and offer unprecedented creative options for musicians, composers, students and educators.
Finale 2007 raises the bar for speed and ease of use. The new Linked
Parts feature offers the ability to automatically create and format
parts as a score is created; these parts are dynamically linked - always
remaining perfectly in sync with the score - but only where this is
desirable. The intelligent link knows when to enforce consistency and
when to allow differences. Finale offers complete control, with the
ability to create separate linked parts from a divisi staff in the score
or to show different enharmonic spellings between the part and score.
The new program is the first music notation software that runs natively
on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs, as well as Windows computers. In
addition, users of both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs will experience
new speed and redraw enhancements. KONTAKT� Player 2 is integrated into
Finale 2007, employing the latest technology to play back sounds from
the award-winning Garritan Personal Orchestra, which are included free

Additional related features include Fit to Time, user-definable frame
rates, the ability to write time code to the score and the option to
send SMPTE/MTC to external devices.
Latin Percussion offers another exclusive choice designed to stimulate
creativity. Users can select from a wide variety of authentic rhythms -
all correctly notated - and add them to any piece, instantly.
High-quality Latin Percussion sounds ensure authenticity.
Additional highlights include enhanced Human Playback, Update Brackets
and Groups, Quick Change, Vertical Collision Remover, updated Playback
Controls, enhanced positioning of cross-staff augmentation dots,
improved pickup measures, enharmonic spelling in chromatically
transposed parts and much more.
