Finale - finally!

Postby MIDI Life Crisis » Thu Feb 09, 2017 12:00 pm

Just a note of encouragement... I upgraded to Sierra and my biggest bugaboo has recently been Finale. I have F'in 25 but with no movie window the app is mostly useless to me for the bulk of my work. F2014.5 had stopped launching (WTF!) under El Cap but under Sierra, it is working perfectly. I'm also MUCH better at Keyboard Maestro. I didn't think I could do w/o a mouse, but I've been on the Magic Trackpad 2 for many months now and that, too, is awesome. I'm happy to report I'm on a relatively new paradigm in my workflow and it's even faster than before. No more grabbing for the potatoe [sic] or recovering from crashes. And it is still faster for me than scoring in DP and porting to Finale via XML. Quantize is just not cutting it. Maybe I'm just a sloppy player... (don't tell my producers...) :woohoo:

Great news Mike! You actually seem happy :) now that you have more transparency with your music tools, go at it and write more great music!

Thanks, Frankie. I don't know about "great" but I';m able to forget about the machine and think about the music again. I HATE splitting my brain from computer technician to composer mid-thought. It gets me every time...
