Multiple voices

Noteman says: View the Enter multiple voices in a single staff (layers) QuickStart Video for an overview.

Finale offers three methods for working with inner voices: the Layer mechanism, the Voice 1/Voice 2 mechanism, and superimposing staves. You’ll probably find it easiest and quickest to work with the Layer system, which treats each staff as four transparent layers, if you’re entering music in step time (Simple Entry or Speedy Entry tools). HyperScribe automatically transcribes inner voices with the Voice 1/Voice 2 feature.

The Layer and Voice 1/Voice 2 mechanisms are both capable of generating flexible stems-up/stems-down notation, and the two mechanisms can be combined (giving you a total of eight independent voices). If you have even more complex inner-voice relationships, you can use the superimposed-staves technique (see below) as well.
