To notate music is to look forward to the performance, and beyond. Whether you’re creating a simple lead sheet, making worksheets for your students, or composing your magnum opus, Finale helps you easily capture your musical ideas, produce beautiful notation, and quickly share the results.  
 
For 25 years, Finale’s unique ability to create anything on the printed page has remained undisputed while other music notation software has come and gone. Finale 2014 is the forward-looking choice with new innovations, making Finale’s trademark freedom and flexibility easy for everyone to use.  
 
Begin creating your musical legacy today.  
Focus on your art, not the details  
When inspiration strikes, Finale takes care of the details so you can focus on your music. Capture ideas as fast as you can with no obstacles to slow you down.  
 
Your music, your way  
In an instant you can move measures, change keys, or perform dozens of edits to capture, arrange, perfect, and print anything you can imagine. Finale even offers creative and editorial input, from automatically harmonizing your melody to indicating when an instrument is out of range.  
 
Enter notes your way  
The choice is yours. Play in your notes with a MIDI keyboard, mouse, or computer keyboard. Scan sheet music or import a wide variety of file types, such as MIDI and MusicXML. You can even capture a brass or woodwind performance with Finale’s MicNotator.  
 
Own the future today with Finale.  
 
Prepare to be blown away  
Sound quality makes a difference. With Finale you get a selection of world-class instrument sounds from Garritan’s Personal Orchestra, Jazz & Big Band, Concert & Marching Band, and World Instruments libraries. Finale also includes sounds from Tapspace Virtual Drumline.  
 
Your music sounds better with Human Playback  
Whether you enter your notes with a MIDI keyboard or a mouse, Finale’s exclusive Human Playback ensures that your music plays back with all the feeling, phrasing, and nuance of a live performance.  
 
Print it out  
Finale makes it easy to achieve printed perfection. Whether you’re creating a lead sheet for a folk song or pushing the boundaries of music notation, Finale lets you achieve anything you can imagine.  
 
Publish perfect scores  
Personalize your music to fit your style. From music fonts to chord symbols, from time signatures to music spacing, from lyrics to percussion notation, how your music appears is up to you.  
 
Simply choose a Document Style from Finale’s Setup Wizard, and Finale handles all the details. However, should you choose to customize ANY aspect of your music, Finale lets you do that too.  
 
Your music is as unique as you are. Now it can look as unique as it sounds. Only Finale provides you with the flexibility to create anything you can imagine.  
 
SmartMusic integration, a Finale exclusive  
Instantly save your Finale creations as SmartMusic solo or ensemble accompaniments. Assign the piece to your students, assess their performance, and then celebrate their success.  
 
Creative resources  
Finale provides hundreds of customizable music education worksheets. Quickly produce flashcards, puzzles, and exercises for classes in general music, theory and ear training, composition, arranging, and jazz improvisation.  
 
Whether you’re creating music for beginning students, or guiding advanced students through harmonic analysis, you have the customized tools and resources you need to teach and inspire your students. And, with Finale’s Exercise Wizard, you can create more than 50,000 exercises for your entire ensemble.  
 
Music is a universal language  
How you choose to communicate is up to you. When you’re ready to share your music with the world, Finale provides you with more options than any other notation software.  
 
Share your music as:  
- Audio files (including .MP3, .WAV, and .AIFF)  
- MusicXML and MIDI files  
- PDF files – from entire pieces to small excerpts  
- Finale files that can be shared with users of the entire Finale family of products: Finale PrintMusic, Finale SongWriter, and the free Finale NotePad  
 
And of course, you can always print your music and pass it out. No matter how you want to share, Finale has you covered.  
 
Like you, Finale 2014 looks forward, with many technological investments to Finale’s core. These include improved Apple OS X support, a new audio engine, and a completely rewritten file format, providing you with backward and forward compatibility, as well as more flexibility for the future.  
 
Finale 2014 also offers workflow improvements to help you complete more in less time, with more breathtaking Garritan sounds, and notation enhancements designed to produce perfect results without editing.  
 
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.  
 
If you’re passionate about the placement of every rest and accidental, your job just got easier.  
 
If you’re not, your music notation just got a whole lot better.  
 
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.
