Finale v.25 is a full 64-bit application incorporating new features, streamlined workflow, bug fixes, and under-the-hood enhancements resulting in improved performance.
In an effort to fully modernize and streamline Finale, some features found in Finale 2014.5 are not found in the new version. These include:
- Movie Window – ReWire functionality replaces the Movie Window. This allows users to sync Finale with other pro-level audio software (including Logic and ProTools) which provide much more sophisticated video capabilities.
- Mirror Tool and Metronome Tool – These antiquated tools have been removed, in part because usage data confirmed how little they were used. Earlier files that utilized the mirror tool can easily be converted to regular notes and rests.
- Plug-ins – Discontinued plug-ins include Band-in-a-Box Auto-Harmonizing, Count Items and Classic Eighth Beams.
- Scanning – The new Finale was to feature overhauled scanning functionality including PDF import. When this feature was publicly previewed, concerned feedback from publishers and composers was overwhelming. In response, MakeMusic is taking a step back in order to provide future functionality that all musicians can live with. As a result, v.25 will not include any scanning capabilities
