I'm having trouble getting a certain sound. I have no idea what to call it: a fall? a pitchbend?
anyways, it involves a flute and the sound bending down lightly at the end of a long held tone (barely a semi-tone).
how can I achieve this in Finale from the notation file?
is there a way to get a bend (up or down) that is sort of like a slur between two notes? this is in terms of a pretty close interval (minor or major 2nd).
I really don't like the Ped. symbol with the huge * that marks a pedal up. I've read about using other symbols to do this, but somehow, can't get the piano to respond to those pedal markings. I'd like my pedal markings to be the horizontal lines with the little triangular bend to show the pedal up spots. I'm preparing a score with LOTS of pedalling in the piano part and using the default Ped. indication is just too sloppy.
