ASK Video Distributes New Finale DVD Tutorial
ONTARIO, Canada (MuseWire) – ASK Video Interactive Media, a leading creator of software tutorials on DVD, is now the exclusive distributor of The Finale 2008-2009 Tutorial DVD, a video tutorial for Finale 2008 and 2009 produced by MusicWorks Interactive Media. This new DVD is a comprehensive video presentation developed for the beginner and the intermediate Finale Notation Software user and can be pre-ordered at a 20% discount for a limited time.
The Finale Tutorial DVD includes 156 video presentations with a running time of nearly 9 hours and runs directly from the DVD using a custom Flash player, so no installation is necessary on the computer. The videos are captured and produced in a large 960×600 format. This means that the videos did not have to be resized for production. The result is crystal clear videos and the screen captures will be the same size as your Finale software running on your system. The videos show live action screen captures as well as superimposed live video.
The presentation is by composer and Finale expert Paul Gilreath, who has hundreds of film, television and game composition credits and is the author of The Guide to MIDI Orchestration, 3rd edition. With an easy to follow style, users who are new to Finale will welcome Gilreath’s step by step approach, while more experienced users as well as those wanting to upgrade to Finale 2009 will appreciate the advanced topics.
“Finale is one of the most popular notation software in the world and used by colleges, publishers, professional composers, orchestrators, copyists and even hobbyists,” says Gilreath. “However, it’s a powerful program that can be difficult for users to understand, let alone master. Our goal was to help people understand the overall scope of Finale and all of the various ways to approach notation entry and then present a start to finish guide for successful use.”
Perfect for teachers, students, composers, orchestrators and all musicians, The Finale Tutorial DVD is designed to help the user develop and refine their Finale skills. The title is the first release in its new Educational DVD Series developed for music professionals.
