Publisher Comments:

Music notation can be a tough task to master. Finale is the ultimate tool for conquering it. And now you have the ultimate guide for mastering Finale 2005! With "Finale 2005 Power!", you'll learn how to create professional-quality sheet music with Finale quickly and efficiently. Begin by establishing a solid understanding of Finale's framework. Then get ready to master the everyday shortcuts and tricks that make Finale a breeze to use. Walk through each step of the score creation process-from starting a new document, to entering and spacing your music, to layout, extracting parts, and, finally, printing your score. Learn how to quicken your pace using special tricks, new features in Finale 2005, little-known options, and supplemental third-party plug-ins. This book also applies to Finale 2006! Most of this year's new Finale features (e.g. performance enhancements, GPO, Studio View, and the Mixer) are stacked on top of the existing Finale 2005 framework. Therefore, the topics covered in Finale 2005 Power!, including everything from basic entry to advanced layout, are still completely accurate when used along side Finale 2006. For details see www.finalepower.com.
