"Yeah, the sync in the link you provided is okay. I wanted to listen to the broken version too, which you said is listed on the channel as well, but I couldn't find it (I expect it's set to private or some such). If you have a tempo change…"

"No if the errors were inside during playback Finale would not be a basic composers program. The errors were after exporting each instrument as a wav file by going to the instrument list select solo and export to audio ( and do this 20 times) I think…"

"Do you get the synchronisation errors inside Finale as well, or only after you've exported the tracks?"

"Thanks for your replys I did use ppppp to fffff in dynamics and I know you can adjust volume in finale itself but it would be for the whole piece . As Dave said something simple that doesn't screw up sync .I want to fine tune volume change in…"

"Sounds like he wants a free DAW that won't mess up sync. Do you know any?"

Ingo Lee replied to Bob Forrest's discussion volume control
"Hi Bob - If I understand correctly you want to go from Finale ( your score ) to a DAW which will allow you adjust volume levels to individual instruments? Finale has a mixer which allows this, go to View > Mixer and adjust individual instruments,…"

volume control

I would like member help, I composed a piece in finale print music with garritan orchestra this allows me to export the 20 tracks as an individual wav file . I now want to import it into a free daw to fine tune the volume only . Audacity absolutely cannot import the tracks properly they never sync. does anyone know a product that will do the job.  Please let me know . Preferably free or inexpensive and easy to use.Thanks Bob Forrest See More
