Finale 2009 software ships

MakeMusic recently announced it is shipping Finale 2009, the next major version to its music notation software, featuring a number of new additions and optimizations. Finale 2009 features true multi-page viewing and editing, while adding "world-class" sounds from Garritan Personal Orchestra and Tapspace Virtual Drumline. MakeMusic is currently selling Finale 2009 for $600, with upgrades for previous users ranging from $100 to $150.

In addition, Finale 2009 includes the Garritan Aria player, providing VST/AU playback, and open VST/AU hosting, allowing any instrument plug-in to function. MakeMusic optimized the creation of SmartMusic accompaniment files, including support for linked parts, and also upgraded Engraver Slurs, FinaleScript, and MusicXML, among others.

"In the world of software, a twentieth anniversary is extraordinary, and Finale 2009 is a fitting tribute," stated Ron Raup, MakeMusic's co-CEO. "Finale 2009's productivity enhancements represent the rare type of improvements that benefit all users. Long-time power-users of Finale will discover that they can work more quickly and efficiently while new users find the software intuitive and easy to use. The countless related improvements represent a robust upgrade in and of themselves, and they are just one facet of Finale 2009."
