"You should only ever use CC Volume changes for overall volume and NOT for crescendo/decrescendo or dynamic 'volume/intensity' effects. It will never sound right. There are ways with some of the newest products, like with VSL new stuff there is a…"

"I"m not that familiar with Finale itself, but like all score programs, any track can be exported as a MIDI file. If you import that into any DAW (Pro Tools, say), you should be able to edit each individual note's velocity, among other things). Then,…"

  • Well, DAW allows further changes, when whole music track is already complete. And they're difficult to me. But Finale have really simple interface - it just needs to place notes and it's OK. I just want to e.g. make one note quiet, and next note a bit louder.

    I don't want to post my music here so far, cause I don't want it to spread in Internet too fast. I can send one of my music to you by email, but only if you won't publish it.

    There's one more thing I forgot to say - I'm an amateur in fact. I wasn't going to any music school, and only instrument I can play on is flute (and this skill isn't really good). I'm not skilled in notation (I just know what stands for what, but I can't sing a song, when I see notes). But I have good ear to music, I quickly remember new melodies and when I flash on music, I can hear it in my head. When this becomes I regret that I can't translate it to notes. And then when more music comes to my head I'm forgetting this which have already been there. So program such as Finale, when I can HEAR the notes which im writing is not only helpful, but crucial. I can't compose without it... :(
