What it does

The Moving Split option tells Finale to transcribe your performance onto two staves. To decide which music to put on each staff, Finale splits the performance into "right-hand" and "left-hand" parts according to the widest interval you spanned with one hand during your performance, based on the number you enter into this dialog box. The advantage of this method of splitting your performance into right- and left-hand parts (as compared with the Fixed split point option) is that Finale will be able to follow your hands as they move up and down the keyboard, provided there’s a wide enough interval between them for it to discern which hand is which.

If you’ve transcribed any part of your performance, these indicators change to tell you where Finale believes your hands to have been at the end of the transcribed portion. To reset these numbers to the default values (65 and 48), click Reset.
