Simple entry has gone through a tremendous metamorphosis in the past years.
Starting as a tiresome mouse-click-entry tool it grow slowly into a quite usable tool to enter your music into Finale.
Why? Well, for me, there is a much better tool that does the job much ehm…. speedier….!
- Press a not or chord on the midi keyboard
- Press the not value you need on the numeric keyboard – Bam!
If you want to enter many notes with the same note value (let’s say a whole bar of 8th-notes) first press CAPS-LOCK and then the desired note-value on the numeric keypad.
You will see a representation of the locked note value inside the lower left corner of the caret.
