Join Rick Schmunk for an in-depth discussion in this video Playback basics, part of Finale 2012 Essential Training.
Playback in Finale is very useful, even if all you use it for proofreading to…find the wrong notes.…Also, the sounds available and the ability to recreate a lifelike performance…continue to improve with each Finale update.…If you would please open up to 7_01 String Quartet Example file, and we'll get…started by going to the Window menu and opening up the playback controls.…Now on a PC, it's likely that these are docked onto the toolbar, but you can…open up the same way by going to Window and choosing Playback Controls and then…they'll dock to the toolbar.…Now let's just review the transport controls here.…
So let's start with the play button and when Finale is stopped we'll see…there is a play button.…As Finale plays, notice that it'll turn into a pause button.…(music playing)…And when I hit it, notice that it stops where I played back.…If I want to go to the beginning of the piece, I can hit the Stop button and…each time I press Stop after playing, it will return back to the first measure.…
