Encore with Opti-Fingeringâ„˘ Debuts at NAMM
New add on application, Opti-Fingeringâ„˘ available with the latest Encore update for Windows
Encore 5.0.3 with Opti-Fingering
We are pleased to announce the release of the latest update for Encore
for Windows now with Opti-Fingeringâ„˘, Encore 5.0.3, build 746
The Opti-Fingeringâ„˘ add-on program is for a variety of stringed instruments: guitar - standard tuning, guitar - open G tuning, bass, double bass, violin, viola, cello, mandolin, banjo, ukulele.
Opti-Fingeringâ„˘ generates optimal fingering for a variety of stringed instruments. This application has three major components:
A Fingering Library that analyzes a musical composition and computes optimal fingering for a selected instrument.
A fingerboard display that shows a picture of the selected instrument's fingerboard and, using the output of the Fingering Library, shows what fingers to use and where to place them in order to play each stroke in the musical composition.
Encore music notation software that allows songs to be entered, imported via a Music XML file, and edited. When you want to see how to play the song, you can select the desired instrument and play the song.
The Fingering Library is called to compute the fingering and the fingerboard display shows how to play each note or chord as you step through the song.

When page width or margin width is changed, notation will be re-spaced proportionally
