FInale *.mus format files

• Nov 11, 2019 - 19:25

Hi, gang!!!

I use Musescore 3.2.3 with Ubuntu Studio 19.10 (64 bits Linux).

i wonder if there is an easy and direct way to convert (and use) the standard "Finale" *.mus format files.

I know there is an MS-Windows app to read it but... Even the fact I use WineHQ (to use that kind of apps). because some unknown reason, I can't use that app.

Is there some Linux native App to read it?

Is there some direct way to read it, from inside Musescore?

Blessings and Greetings from Chile!!!

Yes, that's what I use it for.
I worked for several years with a paid Finale Allegro 2005 and switched a while ago to MuseScore.
Finale Allegro 2005 does not support XML export. With the current Finale Notepad I can open my old .mus files and export them as MusicXML. I can import these MusicXML files without problems into MuseScore. Some small edits are required but in general this works great.

Hi Jotape1960 !
I worked for a long time on Finale before moving on to MuseScore. I have the full version of Finale 25.5 on my Windows 10 64bits PC that creates new Finale "musx" files but can read old "mus" files.
So I could eventually try, on some of your scores, to open them in Finale, export to Musicxml and send them back to you.
It shouldn't be very long and you could open them in MuseScore
