Utilities/Explode Music

Finale's Explode Music command strips a chordal passage into individual single-line melodies on separate staves. You could use this feature, for example, to transform a piano reduction into four monophonic-melody staves for a choir. You're not limited to exploding a single staff; you can select several staves for exploding. (Explode Music only affects full-measure selections.)

After selecting the region you want to explode, choose this command. The Explode Music dialog box appears, where you can tell Finale how many resultant staves you want, what clefs they should use, and so on.

For detailed information, see the Explode Music dialog box.
