Finale 2008 Freezing.

I've got a problem when I'm entering in notes for Finale 2008, a lot of times when I reach the end of a measure the program freezes. Anybody have any insight on this?

I'm using the Virtual Midi Keyboard for my entry device, but I'm not entering in notes fast as I saw in a tutorial not to.

Once again, insight would be helpful.
Finale won't let you save as MP3 when using VST/AU.  If you use the softsynth instruments, you can.

Save it as a WAV, then convert to MP3 in iTunes or wherever.
Also another question....When I want to save the file as an audio file, it doesn't give me the option of an MP3, only a .WAV file...how about some insight on that?
You might want to try deleting the Preferences for Finale:

1.  Go to the C:\Program Files\Finale 2008
2.  Deleting the FINALE.INI and FINMIDI.INI files  They are listed as ";Configuration Settings"; when ou scroll your mouse over the file.

This will allow FInale to make new Preferences when it restarts.

Hey JT, long time no talk.

I found that I had to enter it pretty slow, and since then I haven't had any lockups.�� Kind of a pain, but better than having to save every few seconds.

I would look into getting a hardware controller of some sort, like the M-Audio ones (which are fairly inexpensive).

Hey Justin, How ya been

Yea, I've got a controller on the way, of course I'm just tryna keep on schedule with some music that I gotta give to the high school.

But I should have any problems with freezing with a controller though, would I?
