Finale 25 plugin : JW Yada Yada Tremolo (v2)

see also: Finale Plugin: Yada Tremolo version 2.01

Finale users finally have access to this great productivity tool (again) in Finale 25 with the release of a new, 64 bit version of Jari Williamsson’s “Yada Yada Tremolo” plugin.

The new version of the plugin features a number of improvements.

In Yada Yada Tremolo v.2, any music font that contains a tremolo character is supported (including SMuFL/Unicode fonts). There are also newly added controls for positioning.

Version 2 of JW Yada Yada Tremolo is only available for Finale 25 and later.

You can use different modes to support various articulation mapping of the symbols. The “Legacy Limited” mode supports Single Tremolo Slash, Double Tremolo Slash and Triple Tremolo Slash.  The “Legacy Full” map supports a Buzz Roll as well as the Single, Double and Triple Slashes. With the SMuFL mapping, Penderecki and Wieniawski Unmeasured Tremolo symbols are also supported.

Note: The plug-in will currently only process articulations whos definitions are set to Always on Stem Side. Always Place Outside Staff must also be off.

You can add, edit and sort any music font with a tremolo character to the Tremolo Fonts list, and for each font, control a number of attributes about the tremolo mapping type, position, stem length, size and so forth.

Measurements in the Tremolo Options dialog box follow your selected measurement unit in Finale (e.g. if you are using Spaces for measurement, the dialog will show spaces.)

According to the developer Wiki page, there are still a few known limitations to be aware of.

  • Flags that use a different positioning system than Finale’s “standard fonts” will cause incorrect tremolo placement. (Bravura flags will cause this to happen.)
  • Percussion notation is currently not supported.
  • The plug-in runs slowly at the moment. Recommendation is to use it on specific regions where you want to change the tremolos, rather than the full piece.
