  • Recordare Adds Finale 2010 Support to Dolet 5 for Finale Plug-In

    By Guest |

    Recordare LLC has released Version 5 of its Dolet plug-in for the Finale music notation program. Recordare's Dolet plug-ins serve as "universal translators" between music notation applications. The Dolet 5 for Finale plug-in reads and writes MusicXML 2.0 and Open Score Format 1.0 files for high-fidelity translations between music notation programs. Dolet 5 for Finale adds support for Finale 2010, including Finale 2010's new percussion and chord features. It moves beyond the MusicXML support provided with Finale 2010 by including support for the Broadway Copyist font family. Dolet 5 for Finale also improves import from Sibelius 6 files, adding support for importing new features such as feathered beaming, jazz articulations, and German chord symbols. More than 30 new-and-improved features have been added in version 5 compared to the previous version 4.8. Advanced MusicXML 2.0 features such as part-name accidentals and per-part measure numbering are now supported. Other improvements include better import of cutaway staves and nested tuplets. "Dolet 5 for Finale takes full advantage of the new technologies offered by Finale 2010 and Sibelius 6," said Michael Good, CEO of Recordare LLC. "Dolet 5 for Finale supports new Dolet 5 for Sibelius features that Finale could not import before. This lets composers, copyists, and publishers transfer music between Sibelius and Finale more accurately than ever." "Composers these days require access to a wide variety of technological tools," said renowned Australian composer Matthew Hindson. "MusicXML and the Dolet plug-in have revolutionised the way that I work because I am no longer constrained by a single vendor or single application. I cannot praise this initiative highly enough." Dolet 5 for Finale supports Finale 2000 and later on Windows, Finale 2007, and later on Intel Macs, and Finale 2004 and later on Power PC Macs. It is available for US $199.95 direct from Recordare at: http://store.recordare.com/dolet5fin.html Upgrades from Dolet 4 for Finale are available for US $129.95.
