Smile Hello fellow musicians!

I have been enjoying making music with EW for a short time.

I have been using Finale since 1994. Since I am amateur. I still need to learn a great deal. I hope joining this forum will answer one question, which has bugged me for a while about the Timpani DFX Roll Mod Hits.

The keyboard is split into three (3) parts with the highest notes going to great timpani rolls that I can't get to play in Finale unless I notate them way above the treble staff in the score.

There must be an easier way. Anyone have a suggestion? Or should I try asking Finale this question?

Thanks,

Enrique

Hey Enrique,

welcome to the forum.

Phew, I'm not too sure about that.
It's a more Final question, I think.
There are always certain issues
when using notation software
instead of a DAW.

Hey Enrique,

The DXF timpani rolls are split so you can both edit the different timbre of rolls (different mallets). As for getting the pre-recorded rolls to speak within the range of your Finale Project, I believe what you'd need to do (though I don't use finale personally) is to change the playback of the Timpani to be 4 octaves up in the Clef Designer in Finale so it acts as a Transposition of what Midi Note it's reaching (see http://www.rpmseattle.com/of_note/fi...clef-designer/ )

You can transpose the notes reached in Play also, from either the Main Menu > Advanced Instrument Properties (Play 5 and below) or the Instruments tab (Play 6) but that only allows you to offset the transposition 2 octaves, so you would need to then still convert the playback by 2 octaves in Finale

Welcome to the forums.

I would do that always in 2 steps:

1. Create mockups in a DAW for pitching a project and providing sound samples for the musicians
2. Create final score in Sibelius or Finale for the musicians in the orchestra (Just with MIDI sounds or provided library by the score editor, don't care about the sound while scoring, therefore you have the mockup)

In a score editor you can easily type in "tr" for triller. If you are working with sample libraries, you have to write strange dead notes and hide them to trigger key switches just for correct playback.

So I would always do it in 2 steps. It can take a lot of time, because you have to translate CC11 changes into crescendo for example.
