MakeMusic (http://www.makemusic.com) is shipping Finale 2011, the latest version of its music notation software. It "adapts to the way musicians work,” says MakeMusic CEO Ron Raup. He says new features include:
° New staff layout capabilities that make it simple and intuitive to hide, move and edit staves, groups and brackets;
° Lyrics that are more easily entered and which instantly appear exactly as they’ll print out and are automatically spaced with even greater precision;
° Nearly 400 world-class instrument sounds from the makers of Garritan Personal Orchestra;
° An updated Garritan Aria player that offers control over these sounds with an integrated Ambiance reverb and a new Ensemble feature;
° New music that include a collection of percussion, mallet and handbell graphics, as well as enhanced percussion playback capabilities.
