Converting a Finale File into a sound file ready for burning.

From the Finale score and under the File menu, choose Save As. Under the menu choose 'Standard MIDI file'. This creates a new MIDI file from the notation file.

 

Choose Save and in the next dialoge box, choose 'Format 1' for MIDI File Type.

 

 

Open iTunes and choose Preferences under the iTunes menu (or Apple and , for the short key version). Change the 'Import Using' option to AIFF Encoder.

Now the file is ready to be imported. Drag the MIDI file into the iTunes library. Hilight the track and choose Convert to AIFF under the 'Advanced' menu

 

Now the file is ready for burning in either iTunes or Toast
