What it does
This dialog box contains some specialized
settings to help you get the most accurate possible HyperScribe transcription.
For example, you can tell Finale what MIDI channels to transcribe or whether
the program should devote computer power to keeping the screen display
up to date. You also have access to global quantization settings by clicking
the Quant Settings button.
Across Barlines. If you anticipate that you’ll be holding keys
down (for notes tied over from one measure to another), select this option
(so that a check mark appears). If not, leave this option unselected.
With this option off, Finale will never tie notes over barlines.
Tip. If you are having
problems getting clean notation using this option, increase Remove Notes
Smaller than __ EDUs in the More Quantization Settings dialog box to 60
EDUs. See More Quantization Settings dialog
box for more information.
Screen. If you’re playing too many notes, or too quickly, for the
computer to keep up with you, de-select Refresh Screen and try the transcription
again. By relieving the computer of the task of redrawing the screen,
you let it give more of its processing capacity to transcribing your music.
HyperScribe Dialog. Select this option to display the HyperScribe
dialog box which displays the selected options for smallest note and duration.
See HyperScribe dialog box.
On All Channels • Only Channel: ___ . If you’re using HyperScribe
to transcribe a sequence being played by an external sequencer, you can
specify that only one MIDI channel be transcribed at a time, making it
easier for you to transcribe one staff at a time. If that’s the case,
select Only Channel, and enter the MIDI Channel number in the text box.
Otherwise, select All Channels; HyperScribe will transcribe the music
it’s receiving on all MIDI channels.
Settings. Click this button to display the Quantization Settings
dialog box where you can set you quantization type, smallest duration,
and other options. See Quantization Settings
• OK. Click OK to confirm, or Cancel to discard, the changes you’ve
made in this dialog box; you return to the score.
Tip. check "Tie
across barlines" if you will need notation that uses ties across
barlines frequently. Note that you will want to release notes on time
at the end of the measure so that an incorrect tie does not appear.
