Adding (or removing) an Instrument from your Finale score

Written by Zach Cabral

Let’s say you were working on this totally awesome score and you realize about halfway through that some strings would sound so awesome right there. If you were writing your score out on paper, you’d be out of luck. But if you were a big brained Chad you’d already be writing in Finale, and as you are about to learn, this exact scenario is one of the reasons why Finale is so awesome.

So you’ve got your score, and now all you’ve gotta do now is go to Window->ScoreManager (CMD + K will also open this window)

Finale will then open the ScoreManager, and from there you go to Add Instrument, where you can add any instrument that exists in Finale’s library:

That’s it! Finale will do (most of) the rest!
