Welcome to MEDIEVAL 2 for Finale, the smart and unique solution devoted to early music notation!

Medieval music notation is extraordinarily varied and complex! Medieval v.1, originally issued in 1999 to great acclaim, was the first solution available to copyists, students, specialists - and simply to early music lovers - for setting medieval music on computers in a professional fashion.

MEDIEVAL 2, which has been long awaited, now has a completely new code, look and feel, and documentation.

Medieval 2 offers the ability to easily produce professional transcriptions of early music, from Gregorian square notation to late medieval mixed notations, with a beautiful rendering and an astonishing attention to details. And of course, Medieval 2 takes advantage of Finale's power for layout, graphic precision, and printing.

Medieval 2 gives you a wide choice of dedicated tools for neumes, liquescences, automatic placing of custos, quilisma, stemmed note groupings, ultra-fine adjustment of neumes and notes, and numerous special symbols: oriscus, rests, plicas, large ligatures, black-void (white) notation, etc.

And Medieval's unique Neume tool, an automatic neume recognition system that is really fun and instructive to use, has been greatly enhanced to over 200 neumes.

Medieval 2 is so advanced in term of design and functionalities that, more than a plug-in, it can be considered as a software within a software!
