In this series of videos we navigate Finale’s Speedy Entry frame. First, we explore entering notes and rests with and without a MIDI device, entering ties, tuplets, grace notes and chromatic alterations, and Insert Mode.
There are 4 “Layers” and 2 “Voices” available in Finale, giving you a theoretical total of 8 independent lines of music that can appear in any measure of music. Learn how they function, how to navigate between them and how to use them in Speedy Entry.
Then, we take a deeper dive into creating tuplets in Speedy Entry. Understand how Finale defines tuplets by default when launched from Speedy Entry, and learn how to create more complex rhythms within tuplets — and even tuplets within tuplets. There’s a discussion about tuplets in compound meters!
More advanced topics and percussion notation are provided, too.
