Extra fonts in Finale

Post by benwiggy » 28 Nov 2016, 11:42

This works on a Mac: I don't know about Windows. If you go to the Finale 25 app and "Show Contents", then search through the "Resources" folder, you will find some new fonts! (You can Sort by Kind.)
Chaconne, Kousaku, and Kousaku Percussion. Also Rentaro, which seems to be a Rehearsal Marks "letters in a box" font.

Wow! On the English version??
Chaconne is a most famous Japanese Music Font designed by Takashi Hoshide who the best Japanese Engraver.

He designed also his own Font that to see on his compositions/arrangements and engraving that is named Sarabande. It's really really beautiful!
I studied composition in japan and I am trying to work as music engraver in germany.

In the past these four fonts were also included in the free demo of the Japanese Finale 2014 release.

Chaconne is nice: very crisp and clean. Possibly a bit too much -- the sharps don't have much contrast. But I do like the quaver flags. (I'm trying to find a font with nice "bulging" flags.) Kousaku suffers from that weird "huge p" thing that some fonts do.

Can anyone post some examples? I don't want to re-install the demo again, I am in the middle of an important project at 2014.5.
