Of Note: Finale and Sibelius tips and tutorials by musician, arranger and music notation expert Robert Puff. Q: I would like to use Finale to notate the contemporary avant-garde works I am composing.

In a score with a number of instruments, How do I encapsulate a series within boxes or repeat bars for only one instrument, while the others keep playing and counting normally, without the repeat sign? A: Finale is very flexible in this regard. Start by entering the notes for the series you would like boxed. They can be quarter notes, or duplets or tuplets of any value. The note values you choose will determine the initial series width within a bar of score, and the relative width within the part: If you are using tuplets, it is common practice to hide their numbers. Select the tuplet tool. If you have multiple boxed notations on different instruments down the score which use tuplets, use the Mass Edit tool to select all the affected staves in your selected region, then go to Utilities > Change > Tuplets . . . where you can hide the tuplet numbers globally for the selected area in one pass.

~robert. Plugins - Free (VST, AU) | Splice. PRODUCTS. Ruin & Wesen Digital. Product not available The Minicommand is a flexible MIDI controller designed to be small and easy to use. In fact, it is a very special MIDI controller, because you can completely change the way it functions: you can use it as a sequencer, as a controller, as a backup tool, as a MIDI merger, as a MIDI clock, etc… The principle behind this is very simple: a MIDI controller contains a small CPU (like the processor in your desktop computer) that runs a single program. This program controls everything the device does: it recognises button presses and knob turns, it displays data on the screen, it receives and sends MIDI messages, and it can read and store files on the internal SD-card. Normally, a MIDI controller has a single firmware that can’t be easily changed (either the manufacturer has to upgrade it, or you have to use a complicated flashing tool), and you are limited to what the manufacturer has programmed into this firmware.

The Ten Best Audio Plugins For Video Game Sound Design | Article by George Spanos I am often asked what audio plugins I use when designing sounds. My answer frequently includes some new plugin that I have recently discovered and have started using in my day to day work. Though, I must admit that I am not a complete plugin-aholic always searching for that "new best thing". I do believe that there is a lot of room for plugin designers to create something new, and never before heard.

I am always hoping when I load up a new piece of software that I will get the ability to create truly new sounds and be inspired. Unfortunately this does not happen too often. So that leads me to why I compiled this list, and how you should use it. My studio setup is based around the Windows OS with Pro Tools. 1. One of my all-time favorites.

CDM has covered the Mac App Store and its impact (or not) on music software quite extensively in the past – see Apple’s App Store May Not Work for Audio Devs; Developers Respond, October 2010, and Six Reasons the Mac App Store Means Little for Music Creation – At Least For Now, January 2011. But I think a new development may start to change things, at least a little bit. I first asked the question about getting Max-built apps in the Mac App Store around the time Apple originally announced it in 2010 – see a thread in the Cycling ’74 forums.

During my research, it soon became clear that although a number of people were carrying out research around the area of Ambisonic surround sound, few people were enabling others to actually use the technique!

To hopefully help remedy this situation, I’ve created a number of VST Plugins that can be used in many Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs). I may put instructions on how to use them up here at some point, but in the meantime, tutorials can be found on the Ambisonics Music Creation website that I’ve created to help support some of my teaching here at the University of Derby. The plug-ins are available for Mac and PC, and can be downloaded below. The plugins are free to use for personal and educational use.
