  1. Has anyone else ever composed for organ using MuseScore? Notes aren't always playing back in the correct octaves, but I can't figure out what the pattern is. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don't. I don't know if this is a bug. (Free software, so there are some bugs.) Or if there is some feature to adjust stops that I'm accidentally triggering somehow that is fiddling with the octaves. (Accidentally altering playback to 12' versus 32' "shake the building to a pile of rubble" octave pipes…) Anybody else run into this problem? I can just compose the whole thing in the piano setting for the sake of getting my chords voiced the way I intend, but then I'm missing the strong sustained sound an organ gets you, and it all feels very dinky. This is a nice bombastic organ fanfare.
  2. Is there a way to quickly make a video of the score scrolling past to accompany its playback? I could painstakingly add print-screened pics at appropriate times, but I wonder if there are more elegant ways? I use standard stuff: Sibelius 7, Windows Media Player Apologies if this has been asked before..
  3. I am trying to compose a few saxophone solos on Finale 2008 and I am having a difficult time because when I put the notes in I hear certain pitches, but when I have the computer play it back for me the pitches change. I think this is because saxophone is an E flat instrument and it might be playing it back to me in concert pitch. Is there a way I can match up the pitches so that I can hear it, hum it, and keep composing? Thank you! -J.P.
  4. I feel like I must be missing something. How can modern notation software still be so useless at accurate, sensible playback of glisses? Is there any setting I can adjust in Sib 6 or Sib 7 (I have both installed -- bought the 7 upgrade but am still primarily working in 6) to make the playback less comical? Thank you.
  5. Odd enough question, but is there a way to make ties appear in my score and have playback ignore them (i.e., play a repeated note even though it's marked as a tie) that isn't simply using a slur?
  6. I've been working with Finale 2001a for about the last 8 or 9 years. Then my brother showed up with Finale 2011 for me. Of course I would like to upgrade my old files, but first I have to fix some glitches... 1) How do I get Garritan sounds to work in an older file? (When I set Finale to play through VSTs, I hear nothing). 2) How do I fix the instruments? (Even when I play the orchestral works through MIDI, I hear only a 'string orchestra', it seems to ignore woodwinds and brass). 3) How do I fix the percussion hits? (In non-pitched percussion, no matter what instrument it is, the playback shouts a whistle blow)! I'd love to get some help from veteran users, esp. in playback issues (and Aria player). I'm a bit worried about the playback (have no problem in notation issues so far). Thanks in advance!
