I know....but I can't get my soundfonts loaded properly into Finale. I have them loaded and used the walkthrough or whatever you wanna call it that is posted on this site. I have the snare working fine, but the problem comes when loading the tenors, and basses. The tenors sound really low, and if I place a note in the top space of the staff I get no sound....same thing on the bass staff (Hope this makes sense, it's kinda hard to explain) Is it possible for someone that has this figured out to post a template of this setup for the rest of us. Will this work (Just saving a new document without a title,composer name and or copyright date) Just curious if this will work,or would it be dependant on the soundcard setup. Curious to know!
In case it's needed I'm using a
512megs of Ram
SB Audigy MP3+ Soundcard
Also, you should enter your notes with a MIDI keyboard. If you are just pointing and clicking on a staff, Finale doesn't necessarily know what note (MIDI INPUT PITCH) you really want. For example, say you want to enter in a note for tenor drum #1 on the treble clef "E" space. You wouldn't enter in an "E" into Finale, you'd enter a C#4 (right hand) or a C-nat4 (left hand) through your MIDI keyboard. If you're using the template, Finale will automatically know to place these input pitches onto the correct staff line for display.
