If you want to create scores and produce music professionally and intuitively, you will quickly appreciate the Finale v27 software solution from Makemusic! The 27th version is bursting with features and also offers several innovations and updates that once again improve the workflow and help you compose music. Whether you're a professional or a beginner, produce music without compromise and benefit from a high level of control and flexibility so that your ideas are quickly implemented.

Every beginning is...easy!

Finale is designed to be easy to get started with, so beginners can quickly find their way around. With several video tutorials, you can quickly get useful tips on setting up new scores, changing music fonts, and more.

Note input

Do you prefer to compose via MIDI keyboard or draw in your notes with the computer mouse or keyboard? Both are naturally no problem and a standard feature of Finale! Of course, importing MIDI or MusicXML files is also possible.

Texts, details & more

If you've ever entered a score in a music program (e.g. lyrics, guitar tabs, chord symbols, etc.), you've probably noticed how tedious the work can be. Finale offers a solution to this problem, using automation and an innovative workflow to make your work much easier. Legato slurs/articulations, for example, are intelligently and automatically adapted to the conditions of the notation. Professional percussion notations can be created easily without any previous knowledge and without having to worry about displaying them correctly to the drummer. Even the translation of a chorale into Korean is possible thanks to the Unicode support.

Editing tools for everyday use

Thanks to Finale's sophisticated tools, every step is kept simple to get you there faster. Whether it's selection tools, multi-page editing, cut, copy & paste, or management, search and replace, Finale is fully equipped to handle whatever you feed it.

Music playback

Also on board are a variety of virtual instruments and innovative tools and functions that make your ideas sound alive right away. Even the integration of external sound libraries is possible, and simply remain even more flexible. The following playlist gives you a taste of the Garritan sounds included in the package.

But what exactly is new?

While some of the features mentioned were already present in previous versions and only begin to show what Finale is capable of, more useful features are coming with v27. Here is a brief overview

SMuFL character set

Publish & Share Music

Finale v27 lets you quickly and easily share your notes with friends and clients. Without leaving the application, you can now upload documents and share them professionally or publicly. Recipients of the notes don't need Finale, but still get rich features for listening, practicing, editing, and printing your notes - easily in the web browser on a Mac, Windows PC, Chromebook, or iPad!

Support for musical symbols thanks to SMuFL

Thanks to the Standard Music Font Layout, musical symbols can be organized in a consistent arrangement so that musical fonts display correctly in any notation application that supports it. As if that wasn't enough, updated SMuFL-compatible versions of the MakeMusic fonts have been added for Finale to ensure maximum compatibility. The following figure gives you a first impression and shows only a small selection of the more than 2700 symbols included in the new SMuFL-compatible Finale Maestro font.

Revised & expanded instrument list

No matter which instruments you have chosen, the revised instrument list ensures that the NOtation looks good and professional right from the start - and that you hear the right sounds when playing a document! Furthermore, the instrument list has been expanded when starting a new document or editing an existing one. The developers have taken customer feedback to heart and also added frequently requested instruments such as accordion in simple treble clef notation and low brass instruments in Swiss notation.

In addition, a great deal of attention has been paid to the diverse world of percussion: Approximately 150 new and revised layouts in all document styles and templates mean that every instrument selected in the Document Wizard starts with a layout that contains the correct noteheads in a logical place on the staff and plays them with an appropriate sound.

MusicXML 4.0

The standard exchange format for music notation applications (MusicXML) is used for sharing digital sheet music. With the 4.0 version, you have even more control over the sharing of your compositions, as more information than ever before can now be captured in a file. This means they can be transferred between virtually any modern music software. Important information like eg. Bending and GItar bending marks are preserved in detail, while the overall accuracy of the score display allows for fewer errors when importing and exporting. Linked voice excerpts in compressed files are also supported in a standardized way that can be used by all applications.

Improvements at every turn

To make sure that your daily work with Finale runs smoothly, the developers have invested a lot of time in improvements. Even if they are not all new features, they contribute to a rounded overall picture that helps you in your work and does not put obstacles in the way. Here is a short selection:

  • Finale's user interface rendering on high resolution monitors (ex: 4k or Microsoft Surface Pro) has been optimized.
  • The PDF export under Windows now automatically uses the system function (Microsoft Print to PDF).
  • The redesign of some tool icons now shows more clearly what they are for
  • Preparation for future-oriented Hardware like Windows 11 and Apple's M1
