Dolet® 6 for Finale

The most accurate translations between notation programs

Our Dolet® 6 for Finale software is a plug-in for the Finale music notation program that reads and writes MusicXML 3.0 and Open Score Format files. It provides the most accurate translations between notation programs currently available.

Dolet 6 for Finale is designed to work together with our Dolet 6 for Sibelius plug-in to give the best transfers ever from Sibelius to Finale. When going the other way, from Finale to Sibelius, MusicXML files are the only way to move Finale files to Sibelius 6 and 7. Exporting with Dolet 6 for Finale gets you the best results possible in Sibelius.

Even if you are using Finale 2014, Dolet 6 has many advantages:

  • More formatting control
    Dolet 6 for Finale lets you import a MusicXML file into an empty document with your own specific template settings. The MusicXML import will then respect the formatting settings in your empty document as much as possible. Finale 2014 always opens a new document, so you always getting the formatting from your default Finale file.
  • Full batch translation
    Dolet 6 lets you translate an entire folder of MusicXML files into Finale files, or an entire folder of Finale files into MusicXML files. If you have a lot of files to transfer, this is an enormous time saver.
  • MusicXML XSD schema support
    Dolet 6 for Finale includes an option to validate against the MusicXML XSD schema definition. This is a stricter definition of the MusicXML 3.0 format, and will catch more errors during validation than the original MusicXML 3.0 Document Type Definition.
  • Open Score Format support
    Dolet 6 for Finale includes an option to read and write Open Score Format files.
  • Works with more versions of Finale
    Dolet 6 works with Finale 2000 to 2014 on Windows, Finale 2007 to 2014 on Intel Macs, and Finale 2004 to 2012 on Power PC Macs running OS X.

Do you want to read files from scanners like SharpEye Music Reader and capella-scan? Exchange files with Sibelius users? Create files for use in digital sheet music players like Legato and OrganMuse? Dolet 6 for Finale lets you exchange music between applications more accurately than ever before. Finally, the limits to digital sheet music exchange are gone.

“I absolutely LOVE your software! It’s an indispensable tool that I could not live without. I compose/orchestrate for films and Dolet provides me with by far the most efficient way to get music from a Cubase sequencer file into Finale.”
