Why music pros use Finale

For professional composers, every scoring project comes with suffocating deadlines — and there’s no room for mistakes. That’s why music pros use Finale. Finale is battle tested and continually evolving with new, smart features requested by power users who know what it takes to get the job done. Finale 27 — the result of decades of sophisticated development — lets you turn the music in your head into bulletproof sheet music. It also gives you complete control over the creative process, adapting to how you want to work. At every rehearsal or recording session, you’ll be confident that your parts are ready, you have clearly communicated your musical vision, and that your score will sound great!

Makemusic Finale 27 – What’s New:

  • Advanced sharing functionality: Finale 27 lets you quickly and easily share your music notation with anyone. You can upload and share privately or publicly, without ever leaving the app.
  • Support for Standard Music Font Layout (SMuFL): SMuFL is a growing comprehensive standard that organizes musical characters into a common layout so music fonts are displayed correctly across every notation program that supports it — so you can spend more time creating and less time searching for music symbols.
  • Revised instrument list: Finale 27 sports a revised and expanded instrument list that ensures your notation looks great — no matter what instrument you’ve selected — and that you hear the proper sounds when playing back a document.
  • MusicXML 4.0: The latest version of MusicXML captures more information then ever, giving you even more control when transporting your compositions, so you’ll be able to confidently and efficiently move files between today’s major music software apps.
  • Quality-of-life updates: From quirky installer behavior and unusable display scaling to unexpected crashes and problems with printing, MakeMusic has addressed known issues that can slow down your creative process. The result is that Finale 27 is extremely stable and runs smoothly on both macOS and Windows platforms.
