MakeMusic has released Finale 2014a, a free update for Finale 2014 owners.
Windows highlights include new View and Layout palettes and expanded compatibility for ASIO devices with locked sample rates.
Mac highlights include the resolution of a handful of playback issues (including older VST plug-ins, switching audio devices, and attached Bluetooth devices). Improvements were also made in the entry of multi-stroke characters, the use of Human Playback techniques, extract parts naming, and in a variety of scenarios using expressions.
Users of both platforms will experience enhanced text block positioning. Full details can be found in the associated read me files available for both Mac and Windows.
