Scoring Express is a collection of high-quality, professional templates for Finale v27+ — based on the same templates used at NYC Music Services, an industry-leading music preparer.
Each Scoring Express package is much more than just the templates. It contains high-quality music and text fonts, manuscript papers, document styles, and separate libraries. Everything is installed in one go, so you can get started right away.
The settings in Scoring Express files are the result of decades of experience preparing music notation at the highest level. Embedded throughout each file are carefully considered parameters that refine positioning, placement, and design. They reflect the expert advice and tips you’ll find on the Scoring Notes blog.
Drawing on our knowledge of the ins and outs of Finale, we have made use of some of the more obscure features and settings and baked them right into the Scoring Express defaults so that you don’t have to spend time fiddling with them. Each file also includes additional lines, and text styles that extend Finale’s default capabilities in many ways.
Scoring Express takes full advantage of custom fonts and settings that bring a unique beauty to your music.
All Scoring Express for Finale installations come with these fonts:
- Bar Numbers Narrow
- Engraver Time C
- Gothic A1
- Pori Rehearsal
Scoring Express — Theatre & Studio includes nine professional Finale templates for stand-alone use, plus corresponding manuscript papers, document styles, and libraries, so you can use Scoring Express to start a new score from scratch or beautify an existing score.
