I would like to submit a request for a feature that I would like Finale to
consider improving (important when working with larger scores).
Although the Mixer isn't limited to 16 channels+Master, it is very
awkward to work with it if one has more channels. It is if course
possible to scroll to the right with the little arrow on the bottom, but
it is extremely slow and cumbersome, rendering it basically useless.
Even if one has scrolled to the end on the right side, once the mixer has
exited, when returning to it (still in the same file), it is back to its
original state and one needs to go again through this awkward scrolling
Since Finale seems to be fairlly concerned with improving playback
features, this should really be updated or re-thought, so that the mixer
can be expanded easily, and stay in that configuration, in order to enable
the user to change levels, mutes and solos on the fly.
See this forum thread, where this was also discussed:
Perhaps it is only a problem in Windows. I have also checked it with
Finale 26 and it exhibits the same problem.
