For Finale 27.3 and later, you do not need to download this plug-in separately. Use the shipping version instead, and consult the official Finale documentation on Mac and Windows for more information.
For Finale 25 through 27.2. This Finale plug-in copies a rhythm pattern from one source region (layer 1) to a destination region (any layers and any number of staves). The pitches are kept in the destination.
Only destination staves that match with the same number of notes will change. The plug-in is quite flexible and can work with ties and over barlines. Articulations from the source are copied to the destination.
When any visible layer in the destination region contains exactly the same number of notes a rhythmical replacement will be made. A tied note is considered as one single note regardless of how long it’s tied. Two notes of the same pitch with no tie between is two notes.
The pitch of the destination is kept at the rhythmical replacement. Any articulations found in the rhythm source will be copied to the destination.
The source is set by selecting JW Rhythm Copy – SET SOURCE from the plug-ins menu. To copy the rhythm so the destination, select JW Rhythm Copy – COPY from the plug-ins menu.
