The values I am describing are found on the MIDI keyboard itself.  MIDI 
instruments can be assigned a numeric volume level from 0 to 127 on my keyboard 
(Kawai.) 
As others have mentioned here, you can use the MIXER found in WINDOW Menu to 
assign volume, and panning.

You did not mention if you are using a MIDI or internal speakers, but each

Thank you for clarifying that and for pointing to the correct tool for 
remedying the problem if that is indeed it.

I had been trying to say that but had forgotten the procedure using the 
midi tool itself.

Make sure you're not saving Midi volume data with your controller.

Try this:

Go into the Midi tool (not the Midi/Audio menu).
Dismiss the human playback message that comes up.
>From the Midi Tool menu, select "Edit Key Velocities".
Select the entire document (CTL-A on Windows).
>From the Midi Tool menu, choose "Clear".

Now try playback.

If it works, you may have old Midi data in there, or you may have recorded the
velocities from your Midi keyboard.

Re: [Finale] Playback problem

2017-08-31 Thread John Hyde
Dave et al.
  Thanks for the suggestion
All my input is done with a midi controller
The parts sound and stop sounding at unpredictable moments..
   When I first load the file it usually plays all the parts at normal
volume then cuts out so that one might hear parts faintly if turned up all
the way.
   On repeated playing without other tweaks  maybe I get another bar then
it all cuts out (or almost) or one part will continue to play.

There are no expressions at this point except for the tempo  marking. That
one is hard to forget about changing the play back setting since it is
usually playing a tempo that I have already rejected.

   If I scroll ahead and start again I get a few notes then it goes down
like at the beginning.


Just tried

I play with options under the Midi/Audio menu. It gets a bit better at
least one or two parts play after going back and forth  between “play
through Audio unit” / “through MIDI” or under the “Device set up” sub menu
between “MIDI Internal speaker”or “MIDI Through”.
I go between   “Smart synth “and “MIDI”  for the playback option under the
“Midi Setup” sub menu.
Trying to get something working by tweaking things with the volume
controls on the
Studio View option actually did more that I hoped for.

My best  result was just now when I pulled up the file in question  just
now.(other files were doing stuff like this but not so dramatically)
I played all parts for 18 measures and the  Organ part stopped sounding for
the last 4 measures of what I have in so far.

Just tried Documents/Playback and Record Options/ and “reset dynamic
markings”
  I thought that I had started a new file though the project started  in
another one.
 Worked the whole 23 measures!

tried  MIDI Audio/Human Playback /Human playback preferences/ Dynamics/
changed from “automatic” to “continuous controller “ and lost tie audio for
the Sax part about 2 measures in.
  returned it to “automatic” and no change.   Fiddled with levels on Studio
view and can get the sax part sounding for as much as 9 measures. Hard to
see a relationship between what I do and what is working.   Will someone
remind me about what the improvement is between this version
and Finale ’14?
Thanks,
 John

Am I correct in assuming that all other audio from other programs works 
just fine with no dropouts or fading?

I'm confused by your comment about "At the moment the organ and the sax 
are coming through but the guitar is gone.  This is particularly 
irritating since I am also the guitarist."  Does that mean you have 
recorded the guitar part as audio instead of using notation?  Or are you 
just frustrated because you can't hear the part you're supposed to 
eventually play once the piece is finished?

In any event, the first thing I would check would be your use of 
expressions.  Does the disappearing audio happen at the same place in a 
score every time you play it back?  Is there an expression at that 
point?  Might it be one that you created by taking an existing 
expression and copying it and then editing the appearance of it but 
forgetting to also edit the playback effect it might have?

If the places where the audio disappears varies from playback to 
playback of the same score then I don't have any suggestion.  If it's 
always in the same spot then it's something in the score.

Did you enter the parts using a midi controller and hyperscribe?

The next place I'd check would be your Human Playback preferences.  Do 
you get the audio drop-outs if you have HP set to none?

In the Preferences dialog is a panel for Human Playback where you can 
select whether or not Finale incorporates the recorded MIDI data.  The 
default, at least in the Windows version, is to have Human Playback 
ignore the recorded MIDI data for Continuous Data, Velociy, Start/Stop 
Time, Tempo.  If any of those have been changed to "Incorporate Data" 
then try changing those.

I hope others chime with advice -- this can be such a frustrating problem!

Good luck!

Turn Human Playback on and use pizz. and arco expressions that are NOT 
defined for playback. HP will catch your pizz. and arco expressions 
and interpret accordingly.


Keep in mind that pizz. volume for GPO strings is absurdly loud, so you 
will have to use hidden dynamics if you want realistic playback.

Sorry for not being clear enough.  The pizz. was taken from the default

confusing because there are the parameters that work the old way and 
those for VST / GPO instruments.  I would like to use GPO.

About the situation you describe:

I have just started (~30 bars) entering a work into Finale [2009] and I 
have a problem with volume.  There is a short passage of pizzicato 
followed by a return to arco (the work is for string quartet and uses 
VST instruments).  The volume in the arco section is very quiet.  If I 
change the dynamics to ff, it makes no difference, but if I remove the 
pizz. indication from the previous section then the volume is as 
expected.  Is this a known bug and is there a solution?


You don't specify the source of the pizzicato and arco expressions you

expression was defined for playback, and the arco expression either was
not defined, or was defined using a different parameter.

Re: [Finale] Playback Problem after Pizzicato

2011-05-24 Thread Noel Stoutenburg

Michael,

After some further investigation, I found that if you want to use GPO, 
the GPO sample set contains separate samples for violins played arco, 
and for violins played pizzicato. What I don't yet see in the time I've 
had available, is how to change GPO samples with an expression. Until I 
find out how to change samples, here's an old trick that might work: 
define two staves for each string type, assigning one for pizzicato, and 
one for arco and assigning the appropriate GPO patch for each staff. 
Place the notes to be arco in the staff with the arco sample, and the 
notes to be pizzicato in the staff with the pizzicato sample. Now set 
the two staves to print in the same place on the page, and hide the 
staves of the non-playing staff with staff styles.


However, I'd assume that there is someway to change instrument samples 
in GPO mid staff, so I'll continue looking for that when I get a chance; 
meantime, if there's not a way to change GPO samples, we've got a 
feature request for Finale 2013.

2011-05-24 Thread Eric Dannewitz
Couldn't you define the expression to send the note that switches the
patch to pizz? And then define an expression to send the note to
change them back to arco?

The way the GPO works in Kontkat is that there are some really low
notes below the range of the instruments that will switch them between
piz, acro, trem, etc. I assume that the same is true for the finale
version as well.

This Should help you

Yes, one could, and that seems to be the way to do it.

In the documentation, under the subheading To add keyswitches as 
expressions is a list of steps that seems to detail the process.

2011-05-24 Thread Raymond Horton
You can do that in a simpler fashion than the overlapping staves, which can
give you trouble if you forget they are there and try to edit.  Use
different layers for pizz and arco, or have the expression change patches.

OR

use the GPO samples labels KS for keystroke and the expressions themselves
should work.  They are tricky, though.

Noel,
Sorry for not being clear enough.  The pizz. was taken from the default set, 
but since I could not find an arco to counteract this, I set up my own. 
What playback parameters should I create for this?  I have found it 
confusing because there are the parameters that work the old way and those 
for VST / GPO instruments.  I would like to use GPO.

About the situation you describe:

I have just started (~30 bars) entering a work into Finale [2009] and I 
have a problem with volume.  There is a short passage of pizzicato 
followed by a return to arco (the work is for string quartet and uses VST 
instruments).  The volume in the arco section is very quiet.  If I change 
the dynamics to ff, it makes no difference, but if I remove the pizz. 
indication from the previous section then the volume is as expected.  Is 
this a known bug and is there a solution?


You don't specify the source of the pizzicato and arco expressions you
are using, that is, whether you used the ones included in the default
expression library, whether you created your own, or whether perhaps you
got the expressions from some other source. In any event, what you
describe sounds to me to be what I would expect if the pizz.

Turn Human Playback on and use pizz. and arco expressions that are NOT defined 
for playback. HP will catch your pizz. and arco expressions and interpret 
accordingly.

Keep in mind that pizz. volume for GPO strings is absurdly loud, so you will 
have to use hidden dynamics if you want realistic playback.
