MakeMusic announces the release of Finale 2007 notation software for Macintosh and Windows. Finale 2007 offers the ability to automatically create and format dynamically linked parts as a score is created. Users can create separate linked parts from a divisi staff in the score or show different enharmonic spellings between the part and score. Finale 2007 also runs natively on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs as well as Windows computers. In addition, users of both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs are promised new speed and redraw enhancements.
Kontakt Player 2 is integrated into Finale 2007 free of charge for playing back sounds from the Garritan Personal Orchestra. Finale 2007 also adds a variety of authentic, correctly notated Latin percussion rhythms and high-quality Latin percussion sounds.
In the upgrade, imported digital video is automatically synchronized with notation as users compose, edit and play back their score. Related features include Fit to Time, user-definable frame rates, the ability to write timecode to the score and the option to send SMPTE/MTC to external devices.
Additional features 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 and more.
