New Lower Price for Finale


Recommended Posts

If you have been contemplating taking the plunge into full-featured notation software, good news: Finale is now priced at $299, a full 50% drop from its previous list price of $599. The learning curve is a bit steep (think Photoshop) but the help system is voluminous and there are many online tutorials to get the beginner up and running. Finale has been a huge boost to my music education. The ability to write music and hear it played back is priceless. The principal competitors to Finale are probably Avid's Sibelius and the open source, free MuseScore. I believe Steve uses Finale. Their capabilities are essentially equivalent; in my case the choice was a matter of compatibility with my theory instructor. Here's a sample of mine from a couple of years ago, created six weeks from the starting line.
