I think I already know the answer to this question, but I figured that it would be worth it to field it anyhow. Is it possible to assign different maps to different layers in Finale? I searched the Finale related forums, but those are never really geared towards the needs of percussion arrangers.
And just for future reference (when I finally make the switch to SIbelius) is this possible in Sibelius either? Jim, I've see you post Kontakt bank setups with a collection of instruments on one staff, but do they show up properly from a notational standpoint?
And - staff type changes are available in both Finale (Apply Staff Style) and Sibelius (Staff Type Change).�� This is something that Finale can do very easily along with the needed midi message for the playback portion of that change.

Any time a bank change is done in Kontakt 2 (along with Finale/Sibelius) the best way to keep it all neat and clean is to do a staff type change. That way, the notes appear where the should and the student typically won't see the staff difference.
