Step 4: The MIDI Setup dialog box

The MIDI Setup dialog box is where you instruct Finale which devices you’d like to use for MIDI functions. On the left side of the dialog box, you’ll choose the MIDI input device. On the right side, you’ll choose the desired output device. What you choose here will determine on which device Finale plays your music.

  1. Start Finale.
  2. Choose MIDI/Audio > Device setup > MIDI/Internal Speaker Setup. The MIDI Setup dialog box appears.
  3. From the MIDI System pop-up menu, choose CoreMIDI.
  4. Select the proper Input Device and Output Device from the pop-up menus. If only ports are listed, select the port on your interface to which your MIDI device is connected.
  5. Click OK.
