What it does
When you record a performance in the Transcription
Mode, Finale offers you the option of preserving any tempo changes so
that you can hear them later applied to the finished transcription. (To
calculate this information, Finale compares the evenness of your Time
Tags with real time; if your Time Tags grow farther apart, for example,
Finale infers a decrease in tempo.) In this dialog box, you can specify
how you want the tempo information captured.
Not Save Tempo Changes. Click this radio button if you do not wish
to save any tempo changes.
Tempo Changes as an Absolute Tempo. Click this radio button if
you want Finale to remember each tiny tempo change as an absolute tempo
change. In other words, Finale might think to itself: "60 beats per
minute...65...70." Any expression you place in the score (whose playback
definition has been set to affect tempo) will have no effect on the playback
tempo. Similarly, you can’t affect the playback tempo by adjusting the
Tempo parameter on the Playback Controls. This is the most precise method
of preserving your tempo fluctuations.
Tempo Changes as a Percent Alteration. Click this button if you
want Finale to remember each tiny tempo change as percentage of the tempo
that preceded it. In other words, Finale might think to itself: "60
beats per minute…8% faster…10% faster." While this kind of tempo
information is slightly less precise than the Absolute type, it allows
you to change the starting tempo (with an expression, or by changing the
Tempo in the Playback Controls) without destroying the relative tempo
changes from moment to moment.
Tempo Changes as a Percent Alteration with an End-of Measure Reset. Click
this button if you want Finale to remember each tiny tempo change as percentage
of the tempo that preceded it (see "% Alteration," below)—but
to remember it in one-measure segments. Finale keeps track of the tempo
at the beginning of each new measure, therefore, making it easier for
you to edit the tempo for a specific measure with the Tempo tool.
• Cancel. Click OK (or press enter) to retain tempo information,
or click Cancel if you decide you don’t want to retain tempo information
with your transcription. You return to the Transcription window.
