THE USE OF FINALE MUSIC SOFTWARE IN DICTATE STUDIES FOR FREE RHYTHM

Aytunç AYDIN

In Turkish Music, forms such as taksim, açış, gazel are free-rhythm tunes performed improperly. It is important to utilize music software in order to make the notes written as a result of dictation of free rhythm samples performed and dictation of these samples as much as possible. In the study, it is aimed to reveal how the finale music program should be used in dictating free rhythm tunes in a useful and correct way. In the study, the steps that need to be done for this purpose are explained with visuals. As an example of free rhythm melody, the açış in the entrance section consisting of 31 seconds and chosen by Davut Sulari in the uzun hava named Tan Yıldızı was chosen. In addition to the finale music software with version 26, Melodyne (version 4.1.0.001) and Sound Analysis Oscilloscope (version 1.1 / 7) software were used to measure the frequency values of the required pitches in the examined icrâ sample. In the study, the data were obtained using documentary scanning (document method) and interview technique. The MIDI / Audio feature in the Finale Music program has provided a practical use for dictating the relevant performance example. The feature in question can divide the sound file of the execution into the number of measurements and announce the notes written with these sounds simultaneously. This simultaneous operation and also the ability to listen to the divided audio files of the measurements at the desired repetitions facilitated the detection of the notes and increased the accuracy. It is thought that the study will benefit new studies on the subject.
