Finale 2007 is shipping

Logo FinaleLes premiers exemplaires de mon éditeur de partitions préféré commencent à être envoyées de chez MakeMusic.
Mais quand vais-je recevoir le mien ? En attendant la critique annuelle de Jary Williamson, le “read-me” décrivant les nouvelles fonction et les corrections de la version 2006 vient d’être posté par Carla, chief of the MakeMusic tecnical support.
Encore une fois, à part les parties liées au conducteur, peu d’innovations et de nouveautés pour les graveurs de mon espèce, mais améliorations notables des fonctions de playback et de gestion du temps.

The complete ReadMe will be available for download. Please see below for a list of new features and fixes found in Finale 2007. New Features in Finale 2007
Linked Parts. Content from the score is now intelligently linked to parts so editing the score and part documents separately is no longer required. Print parts directly from your main project file.
Latin Percussion plug-in. Use this plug-in to automatically create authentic Latin Percussion rhythm section notation, with a variety of styles to choose from.
Latin Percussion Sounds. You can now make your Latin rhythms sound as good as they look.
SMPTE/MIDI Time Code Support. Use MTC to synchronize Finale with the integrated Movie Window or another MTC-compatible device.
Integrated On-screen Video. Use Finale’s built-in Movie Window to write to picture. No external software required.
Fit to Time. Instantly assign a duration for any region of music. Finale modifies the tempo to fit the music to the time specified.
Playback Counter. Finale’s Playback Controls now include a counter that displays SMPTE MIDI Time Code during playback (hours, minutes, seconds, and frames).
Time Markers. A new Measure Number Style allows you to view the elapsed time at any measure.
Change Expressions Quickly. Simple key commands can now be used to change the expression definition directly from the score.
Intelligent Articulation Positioning. Finale can now automatically flip articulations to the appropriate side of the staff as stems flip during the addition or removal of layers. Use the Auto Note/Stem Side setting in the Articulation Designer dialog box.
Multimeasure Rests Now Update Automatically when a note is added in Scroll or Studio View to a measure within a multimeasure rest region.
Vertical Collision Remover. Automatically reformat the vertical positioning of staves, systems, and instrument groups to avoid collision of notes, articulations, smart shapes and other items.
Human Playback Improvements. The Human Playback Preferences dialog box now includes specific “techniques” designed to give you a completely customizable Human Playback environment. Techniques also allow Human Playback to make the most of multiple sound libraries used in the same document.
Kontakt II for Finale with Garritan Personal Orchestra. The new Kontakt player allows you to load up to 64 instruments and channels at once. Also benefit from optimized sample management, and DFD disk streaming, and more.
More Control of Groups and Brackets. Groups and brackets can now be edited en mass after a score has been optimized.
Hide Chords, Fretboards, and Lyrics on Individual Staves. Or, hide them on a region of a staff with Staff Styles.
New QuickStart Videos. Finale’s QuickStart Videos have been updated with a new look and additional content to get you up and running even faster.
