I hope that everyone had a happy holiday season and new year! To start off the new year, Recordare has released version 4.6 of our Dolet for Finale plug-in. Dolet is a plug-in for the Finale music notation program that reads and writes MusicXML files. Finale 2009 does this too, but Dolet offers batch translations, better interchange with Sibelius, optional validation against the new MusicXML XSD, more control over formatting during import, and more frequent maintenance updates. It also works with versions of Finale going back to 2000 on Windows, 2004 on Mac OS X Power PC, and 2007 on Mac OS X Intel.
Version 4.6 is a free maintenance update for existing Dolet 4 for Finale users. It improves the export of articulation and expression positioning, especially when using Finale 2009b, and fixes various bugs in both import and export.
Dolet 4 for Finale is available for a 30-day free trial and purchase from:
