What it does
Before you transcribe a real-time performance, there are a few things Finale needs to know about the music you’re about to play. For example, you need to tell Finale what rhythmic value you’ll be using for your key or foot taps as you play, and the value to which you want your performance quantized. This menu lets you make these settings, which have a great deal to do with the quality of the resulting transcription. Be sure to review Recording with HyperScribe and Finale Tutorials.
- Beat Source. Use this submenu to control what you hear when you use HyperScribe to enter your music. Listen to just a metronome click, or listen to an instant playback of the staves that you’ve selected in the Score Manager. If you prefer, you can also play back staves while an accompanying metronome click provides a beat reference. The Playback and/or Click command supports the click and countoff options for HyperScribe playback and recording. See Beat Source submenu.
- Record Mode. This submenu has commands for transcribing a performance into a single staff or two staves, and the multitrack recording command that lets you record simultaneous input from multiple channels into multiple staves or multiple layers of staves. See Record Mode submenu.
