    performance directions in finale 2009?

    ive recently got finale 2009 with garritan and i was wondering if its possible to add things like portamento, staccato, rubato, different tonguing?
    ive typed in some music and it is alot better than a midi synth (alot!) but it plays every note in the same way.
    i would like to be able to slightly alter each note so as to make it more reaslistic.
    im a bit of a computer novice to say the least! music technology to me is a pencil and paper, so i really dont know how to use this finale 2009 thingy.

    First, check out the articulation menus... thart's always a good place to start!

    thanks jaz. ive given that a go. it seems to make a difference but not as much as i wanted really. i will keep trying with it to see if i can get the hang of this articulation menu. fingers crossed.
    ive read about sequencers: you can control the music in more detail with one of these? is that right?

    Are you using human playback in Finale? That helps.

    Yes, you can achieve pinpoint control of every note in a sequencer.
    In Finale alone, that level of individual note control is extremely difficult to achieve.
