Hello,

When I'm playing my strings vst on a legato passage, it seems that Finale adjusts the "attack" parameter to soften the sound. It plays a systematic, isolated, crescendo, of sorts. But repeated on each note, the feedback is quite unflattering. It sounds like waves.

This effect is completely avoided if I use a DAW instead, to record the parts, but I can't work like this with orchestral partitions. 

Is there a way to prevent this to happen ? A parameter to uncheck somewhere ? Or else a way to exports my partitions in a DAW to record, I don't know ?

Thank you all !

Finale's Human Playback has never been documented as well as we'd like. You can just start unchecking/checking different parameters like "automatic expression" and/or different settings in the "dynamics/Volume" settings.

 

Just wondering, what do you mean by orchestral partitions?

By orchestral I mean with loads of instruments :)

"partition" = is French for "score"

You said you were using VST strings. You did not say Garritan. Human Playback (HP) is, of course, only configured to work with SoftSynth and Garritan sounds.To have it work with additional VST libraries, one may have to add statements to expand HP's capabilities.

File > Export > MIDI file, choose MIDI File Type Format 1 - all instruments saved to separate tracks.

Import the MIDI file into your DAW. You need to set up your instrument sounds again, but then you have (depending on your DAW) many more and better possibilities to mix to a sound file.

Thank you all for your answers, I unchecked the automatic expression and it worked, I can now manage everything manually. The midi exoort method is also a good one.

And it works actually very well with other vst libraries than garritan, the thing is... it would be great if this expression option took into account the slurs we write, treating all the scale as one, instead of making this note by note crescendo / decrescendo. 

 

PS : Sorry Jeffrey, Michael is right, the word was "score", my mistake
