I can post myself. Thanks for the offer. Yes Finale has MIDI. There
is a problem with some though as to layers. If I have an accidental in
one layer and the next layer uses the same note which carries the
accidental in the previous layer, in the same measure, then by music
nomenclature I don't have to repeat the accidental but the note plays
wrong. My music is full of that kind of stuff. So if I post MIDI I
will have clashing accidentals. Maybe some don't have this problem and
I'll start weeding them out.
I also found out last night that I can post in wav. format. Do most
people have the ability to hear that?

Bravery? How could this possibly scare me? It's just the time. I've
got a business and family life. A little at a time.
