It doesn't seem advanced to me to hear as you enter the same pitch as you will hear on playback. I can understand a non-transposing score and I can understand a transposing score sounding as above. I just can't see any use in a transposing score that sounds irrelevant pitches as you enter, which is Finale's behaviour. Steve P.
