Set up your MIDI Device outputs to the appropriate devices you own, configure the channels in Score Manager, and then tell Finale to Play Through MIDI.

Thanks but maybe i don't explain right.

i want to get the possibility to asign a channel, for example a piano in channel 1 to my physical midi output devices, like my Roland Sound canvas. Then other instrument like an electric bass to a virtual instrument like kontakt or other.

That might require using something like Bidule.

Yes I know Bidule.

But why all Daws can work using external midi devices and Vsti instruments at same time but Finale not?

Because Finale is not a DAW?

Ok, I apreciate your help, but it seems you want to start a discussion about my request, thinking I have a problem working in Finale.

I only post a feature request, waiting Finale could include this improvement in the near future.

Seems to be you are not interested Finale could be better software than now, I'm interested, I have 25 years working with Finale. I think it can be better software.

If you like my request, vote, not like my request, i don't need you to question my request writing your last comment. It Seems you are making fun of me.

Regards.

Different programs are designed to do different things.Finale has never pretended to be a DAW.

 

I'd be happy if Finale decides to honor your request (our votes no longer seem to matter), but the next major version of Finale is a long way away, and I did my best to suggest possible work-arounds, if you can take advantage of them, which I guess you cannot.

I know Finale is not a Daw, but it take some things from Daws, Audio record midi input and output, Vsti Instruments etc.

I'm a strong defender of Finale for years.

But I think they have been leaving Finale without major improvements for a long time. I think Finale should include some of the best things from other Softs. For example: external midi and Vsti working toghether, an editor like Piano roll for midi, there are some functions in Finale don't work properly, possibilty to select not continuous measures to edit. automatic tie in second ending, the option to do it from speedy entry don't work fine etc...

I think the last updates are only a commercial question, I work in Cakewalk for years ago, they are doing very important updates all time, it's free cost.

Thanks your help but i know ways to work and fix the problems about midi in Finale.

Only want to pay and get a better soft.
