    Alternative intonation

    Hi
    Don't know if this is the right forum for this question, so bear with me...
    I have just upgraded my Finale notation program to 2010, and notice in the Garritan installation folder, under Instruments for Finale, that there is a Scales folder containing definitions of a range of alternative intonations.

    How can I use these? I can't find anywhere in either Finale or the Aria interface where I can select intonation.

    Hello, Frma

    I believe you're talking about alternate scales. Intonation is the relative accuracy of pitch, either in a performance, or in the tuning of an instrument.

    In Aria, when you click "Settings"--do you see a button for importing alternate scales?

    Speaking of alternate intonation...do you know how to tune two piccolos?
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    OK, alternative scales is a better term - thanks!
    I can't find a Settings button in Aria. There is a Controls screen, with Porta, Length, Var 1 and so on,but no Settings, and no button for importing scales. Perhaps Finale comes with a stripped-down Aria player?

    Instruments for Finale has no SETTINGS tab.
    You will find a button labeled "import" right to "01 - equal.scl" under the ABOUT tab.
    "01 - equal.scl" is the default scala file (equal temperament).
    You can select another scala file by clicking the "import" button or simply drag and drop a scala file on the Instruments for Finale graphical interface.

    Thanks, Pascal! I'm only familiar with the up-coming version of Aria, but felt there had to be a way to import alternate scales in the current Finale version. Good deal.

    I don't know about piccolos but I know you can tune a piano but you can't tuna fish.

    Thanks indeed, Pascal!
    I hadn't expected to find functional settings under the About button.
