What does not

When saving files, you have to add the extension to the name to get it to save in any other format than .mus (the dropdown menu of formats is blank) The Greeter graphic crashes and remains on screen until you close the wizard.Fonts do not display correctly; to remedy this, I had to download the font package from the Finale website, which gives you the same fonts that are installed but with the .ttf extension.Playback occassionally skips or lags, but even when playing pieces that use every midi channel, it is fairly smooth and accurate.When stopping playback mid-piece, the last measure may continue to playback, repeating a few times.


What was not tested

Speedy Note Entry or Hyperscribe entryInput from a sequencer/keyboard

Hardware tested

  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Finale is adequate, and assuming entry from a sequencer/keyboard is possible, even a serious composer would feel satisfied running the software on Linux.
