Conquering Finale Tip: Realistic Playback of Rhythm Parts

One advantage of using HyperScribe over Simple and Speedy Entry is that Hyperscribe will automatically add a layer of MIDI data. This can be used to create hidden playback data, which is especially useful for pieces with slash notation.

Here’s a pro tip for more realistic playback of rhythm parts. You can use HyperScribe to record a live performance and then use a Staff Style to hide the resulting notes. HyperScribe will record the precise onset and offsets of the notes you play, as well as a lot of the underlying MIDI data like velocity, pedaling, and even things like pitch bend. Put a Slash Notation Staff Style over top of the part and it will seem like the piano player is comping through your slashes!
