While others take music notation software development for granted, Finale is doubling down to provide you and your music a clear path to tomorrow.

Finale 2014 offers notation perfection with less effort
For 25 years Finale’s reputation as “the only choice for music notation perfection” has remained unchallenged. With Finale 2014 you enjoy that same level of perfection MakeMusic has just shortened the path.

Included are many improvements, based on your requests, that impact how your notation looks before you edit anything. Better automatic results mean you spend less time fine-tuning.

With Finale 2014 you get exactly the notation you desire quicker and more efficiently than ever before.

Finale 2014 offers you new tools
From a clean efficient workspace, to powerful new capabilities, Finale 2014 offers new tools to create your music.

At first glance you’ll notice Finale’s updated icons, backgrounds, and textures. Beneath the surface improved Apple OS X support provides new features today and a foundation for the future. But this is just a start.

Enhancements in Linked Parts give you more control over items you want to look one way in your score, and another in your parts. Plus SmartShapes, including hairpins and trills, just got a whole lot smarter.

When it’s time to share your music, Finale 2014 offers EPUB support (offering instant publishing for e-book platforms like iBook for the iPad) and – for the first time ever – a simple way to share files, back and forth, with users of an earlier version of Finale.

First there was pen and ink. Then came Finale. Now there’s Finale 2014.

Enjoy the new tools.

Superficial Beauty
We live in a world where nearly everything is calculated to look great at first glance. We all know that the real measurement is often beneath the surface.

Finale’s ongoing innovation goes beyond features. For Finale 2014, MakeMusic has refreshed their core to provide a platform poised to be your springboard for tomorrow.

Here are just a few examples:
- A totally rewritten FILE FORMAT, which not only makes it possible to share files back and forth with the previous version of Finale, but also offers much more flexibility for the future.
- A new AUDIO ENGINE boasting rock solid playback performance.
- Fully integrated HUMAN PLAYBACK with centralized preference control.
- Finale 2014 for Macintosh has been updated with improved Apple OS X support, producing a new look and time-saving workflow features like pinch zoom and native full screen support.
- EPUB SUPPORT – a new standard in digital publishing, EPUB offers instant publishing for e-book platforms like iBooks for the iPad.

While others take development for granted, Finale’s doubling down to provide you and your music a clear path to tomorrow.

New Garritan Sounds
In December 2012, MakeMusic purchased the Garritan Corporation, ensuring that the relationship between Finale and the Garritan sounds you rely upon is secure into the future.

For Finale 2014, MakeMusic again added dozens of breathtaking new instruments to the robust Garritan library already included with previous versions of Finale. From Alto Flute to Tubular Bells, these new additions were selected from several Garritan libraries: Personal Orchestra, Jazz & Big Band, World, and the amazing new Instant Orchestra.
